Caradoc King Book and Novel

Caradoc King - Author


Caradoc King is at the helm at AP Watt, which is the longest established literary agency in the world. In the course of his 35 years as a literary agent he has worked with some of the biggest names in literature, such as Graham Swift, Helen Dunmore and Tony Parsons. Caradoc is a long time friend of Philip Pullman, who he met at Oxford and became his first client. Caradoc’s business acumen is legendary and he famously sold the film rights to The Horse Whisperer before first-time novelist Nicholas Evans had even finished writing the book.

Caradoc decided to write Problem Child after meeting his biological mother for the first time, an intensely emotional experience which he wished to record. Later he decided that he needed to explore his difficult and complex relationship with his adoptive mother.
