I worked at HarperCollins London for 4 years in which I learnt so much and was fortunate to work across a lot of the film tie in publishing such as the Movie Guide and Visual Companion for the three The Hobbit films (also got a sneaky invite to the London premier which was a dream come true for a closet nerd like me) and also I went to Spain to press pass the titles as we had 16 co-editions on one of the titles and 12 on the other.
I also worked on a lot of pop culture titles such as the One Direction books.
Following my 4 years I went freelance but continued to work for HarperCollins being pulled in to help with the Fantastic Beasts film publishing.
Over the 3 years to date I’ve been freelancing for Penguin imprints such as Ebury, Virgin and Pop Press. And have worked for Orion Publishing, Octopus Publishing and also with 4th Estate for 6 months as a sort of perm-a-lancer going in house a few days a week to work on covers.
Freelance work in house for 4th Estate and William Collins working across the non-ficiton lists. Varied projects from series designs for Joan Didion to specialist wartime history such as Secret Pigeon Service.
I started at HarperCollins as a freelancer and joined the team after a few months as a Junior. I soon progressed after working on the film tie in publishing for The Hobbit movies. I later moved into non-ficiton working across the entertainment list on titles for One Direction and The X Factor. I continued to move onto different lists across fiction cover design and have subsequently returned to HC as a freelancer to work across the Fantastic Beasts film tie ins, The Grand Tour and Boys of Yoga.
