In my day job, I work as a commercial fiction editorial director at Trapeze, Orion. We publish books that start conversations, and I specialise in crime, thrillers, women’s fiction and saga. I commission across all these areas. Trapeze also publish non-fiction.
Prior to this job I spent three years working at Avon HarperCollins, publishing a range of Sunday Times and Kindle bestsellers in the commercial fiction space.
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.
You can find Trapeze and see what kind of books I work on here.
