Sugandha Gupta – Editor

Seasoned editor with a flair for storytelling via dreamy children's books, contemporary and literary narratives, and historical fiction!


As an experienced editor and storyteller with 8+ years of experience in the publishing industry, I have had the privilege of working with internationally acclaimed authors such as John Stratton Hawley, Patrick Olivelle, Romila Thapar, and Irfan Habib. I have also built and mentored diverse teams of editors.

I am most proud of my collaboration on a children's book series project with singer Ricky Kej for Macmillan Education. Specializing in historical fiction and children's books, I bring a unique perspective and a keen eye for detail to every project.

I strive to provide personalized and constructive feedback that helps authors refine their writing while remaining true to their unique voice and vision. Whether you're a first-time author or a seasoned professional, I will work with you to identify your strengths and weaknesses and provide actionable insights.

Let's work together to make your writing journey a success.
