Margaret set up Margaret Kennedy Agency in 1996 after seventeen years as a book editor in the UK and Australia. Her role in advancing the careers of writers as an agent is a natural extension of her editor's role. She travels regularly for business, maintaining and expanding her publishing contacts both at home and overseas.
By design, Margaret Kennedy Agency is a relatively small agency. Margaret works with each writer herself, carefully building careers. Many authors have been with the agency since it began in 1996.
Her own interests are in literature and the craft of writing, history, music, the history and science of food and wine, world cuisines, and cooking.
She is a founding member of the Australian Literary Agents’ Association.
