I met John Jarrold a while ago at a literature convention. He was holding one to one slots with hopeful writers and their manuscripts. I was one of those writers. My first impression on meeting him, the first literary agent I’d met, was that it was clear why he’s one of the best in the business – sharp minded, generous with his 27 years of experience and precise in his critique of my efforts and those of many others like me, striving for publication.
“It takes time,” he tells me. “Don’t rush it and don’t give up the day job.”
