Overview


I am a PR and Marketing professional with various years of experience working for the world’s leading publishers including Hachette UK and Bonnier Books.

I have worked with amazing authors creating, developing and implementing publicity and marketing campaigns for their books. I specialise in non-fiction titles but also enjoy publicising novels. Each stage of a publicity campaign is different and exciting and I have many good memories of my times at John Blake Publishing, Kyle Books and Octopus Publishing Group.

Below are a few examples of the books and projects I've worked on. From cookery, memoir, true crime and wellbeing to women's fiction, thriller and chick lit, there's not a genre I haven't read or publicise

Some of my achievements include creating, managing and implementing the publicity and marketing campaigns for Dirty Vegan by Matt Pritchard, Stir Crazy by Ching He Huang, Eat Shop Save by Dale Pinnock and My Husband’s Son by Deborah O’Connor. All campaigns were customer focused and were intented to increase book sales, something all of them successfully achieved by becoming bestsellers.

'Dirty Vegan's hearty, casually presented and flavour-packed recipes should find universal appeal' - Waitrose Magazine
