In my day job, I work as a commercial fiction editor as part of Avon, HarperCollins. We publish crime, thrillers, women’s fiction and saga, and I commission across all these areas.
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 sometimes also available to work with authors on a case-by-case basis, so if you are interested in working together please contact me. I can provide editorial notes on the synopses and/or first three chapters of your book, and further tips on getting published.
You can find Avon and see what kind of books I work on here.
