Our Rights Department

I can't imagine that there is a better, more perceptive, or more committed rights section than Darley Anderson's in any literary agency anywhere

The Rights department has done much more for my books than I ever knew was possible. It's like having a bunch of fairy godmothers who regularly drop wonderful exotic presents into your inbox: 'Good morning! Here's Croatia!
