Our authors showcase the full range of the creative imagination. From giants of twentieth-century literature to commercial blockbusters and emerging talent, we are proud to work with some of the most exciting writers in the world, in both fiction and non-fiction.

The children’s list at David Higham includes many of the very best authors and illustrators at work today – a roll-call of stars, whose groundbreaking books are the jewel in our crown.

We are also proud to represent some of the most illustrious literary estates in the English language, and are constantly looking for opportunities to introduce their work to new markets. We are privileged to rage against the dying of their lights.

Please take a look at our Authors lists by category via the links above.
