Jackie Hamley

Jackie Hamley - Editor

the UK

I'm a creative and versatile children's editor and writer with over 17 years' experience working in both trade and education markets.

Overview

I've acted as commissioning editor on a wide range of titles, from poetry to non-fiction, grammar books to graphic novels, and managed projects from individual picture books to pan-European brand partnership publishing deals.

My speciality lies with early readers. I love writing and working with authors and illustrators to create fun and meaningful books for beginner readers, aligning books with book bands and other means of levelling used within UK schools and international markets.
