Emily Wells – Editor

Senior Editor @ Hodder & Stoughton specialising in Christian books and Bibles.


I am an editor with experience publishing educational and Christian lifestyle books. I currently work for Hodder & Stoughton/John Murray Press as Senior Editor, publishing the best-selling book of all time (the Bible, no less!) and have previously worked for Hodder Education.

I love working with authors of non-fiction to bring to life the word that is on their heart, whether that be a devotional, a testimony, or a resource that unpacks the Bible. Whether you need broad edits to get the pace, tone and structure of your work just right for your intended reader, or a forensic look at spelling, grammar and punctuation to add the finishing touches to your work, I can help.

She is fantastic value for money and genuinely turned my book from something with potential into a refined piece of work that I'm...
