Jamie Coleman – Editor

Editor with 10+ years experience. 1m+ copies sold of books I've edited. Helping you find the best words in the best order.


I worked for seven years as a literary agent, with multiple prize-winning and Sunday Times and New York Times best-selling authors of fiction and non-fiction.

Over the last seven years, as an editor in London at Pan Macmillan, Penguin Random House and Orion Publishing Group, I've commissioned and edited bestsellers in multiple languages from authors across a wide range of non-fiction including Adam Kay, The Secret Barrister, The Supervet, Scarlett Moffatt, Tom Marcus, author of Soldier, Spy, boxer Tony Bellew, neuroscientist Dean Burnett and mental health activist Joe Tracini.

I've also worked succesfully with a diverse range of shows and brands including Stranger Things, Doctor Who, Roald Dahl, Schitt's Creek, Doug the Pug. The Ordnance Survey and Gogglebox.

I am the author of 'What I Lick Before Your Face...And Other Haikus By Dogs' and 'Please Stop Touching Me...And Other Haikus By Cats'. I could only think of about three funny ones for hamsters and one for goldfish, so the franchise stopped there.

I am an experienced editor, ghost and book doctor and an expert in how projects fit into the market. Tell me your story and I'll help make it the best version of itself.
