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.
Developing the literacy list for Franklin Watts, from very early readers through to first chapter books with many other wonderful books along the way, including non-fiction and picture books.

Editing and writing books from concept to printer.
