Award-winning editor of fiction for young readers. Have worked with top authors such as Philip Pullman, Jenny Downham and Lisa Williamson.
I devised, set up, commissioned and edited a new series of middle-grade adventure stories from world history called 'True Adventures'. Launching in August 2020, it contains narrative non-fiction titles intended primarily to thrill: fast-moving historical novels featuring charismatic characters to inspire a new generation of readers - such as Mu Guiying, kung-fu prodigy of Ancient China and bandit's daughter, who saved her country from the northern barbarians, or Sophie Scholl, young Munich University student, who dared to speak out against Hitler at the height of World War Two.
With the owner, I set up and ran the company (a leading independent publisher of children's books), doing the usual managing director stuff. But I also worked editorially with a number of our authors, including Jenny Downham, Lisa Williamson and Philip Pullman.
