In my day job, I work as a commercial fiction editorial director at HarperCollins, across both the Avon and HarperFiction divisions. I specialise in crime fiction but also work across some saga and women’s fiction / general fiction titles.
I have also worked at Orion Books and Octopus Books in the past.
I started out in publishing working as a non-fiction publishing assistant, and am fully aware of how difficult it can be to enter the industry. I am always happy to hear from people looking to get involved, so do feel free to contact me via email if you would like any advice. I am the previous co-chair for the Society of Young Publishers, which is a fantastic resource for people wanting to know more about the industry and improve their networking skills.
