Charlie Campbell

Charlie Campbell represents literary and commercial fiction and non-fiction and a select number of children’s authors. Before becoming an agent, he spent three years at Literary Review, where he became Deputy Editor. He joined Ed Victor Ltd in 2005, starting his own list and handling film, TV and serial rights for the agency. After ten years he left to set up Kingsford Campbell, which became CCLAgents and then, in January 2022, Greyhound Literary. He is primarily looking for crime and thrillers, as well as literary and historical fiction. In non-fiction, his interests include sport, popular science, history and humour.

He is the author of two books – Scapegoat: A History of Blaming Other People (Duckworth Overlook) and Herding Cats: The Art of Amateur Cricket Captaincy (Bloomsbury). In 2012, he revived the Authors XI, a cricket team that used to star PG Wodehouse and Arthur Conan Doyle, which now plays at literary festivals around the world.
