About Century

Century Publishing was founded in 1982 by Gail Rebuck with four colleagues, and is one of the most successful and well-regarded commercial imprints in the UK.

On the fiction side, we’re privileged to publish some of the most successful authors in the UK, including international crime and thriller writers such as James Patterson, Harlan Coben and Lisa Gardner, and home-grown talent including Anthony Horowitz, Tony Parsons, Simon Kernick and Lisa Jewell. Bestselling contemporary fiction authors on our list include Katie Fforde, Dorothy Koomson, Diana Gabaldon and Debbie Macomber.

Century also publishes a wide range of bestselling non-fiction, from celebrities such as Sir David Jason, Russell Brand, Peter Kay and Dawn French, to some of the world’s greatest musicians: Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Rod Stewart, Phil Collins and Johnny Marr. We publish unforgettable real-life stories from household names as astronaut Tim Peake, whose bestselling books Hello, is this planet Earth? and Ask an Astronaut appeal to readers of all ages. And we are proud to publish acclaimed true crime and sporting classics, many of which go on to inspire films and TV series, such as Helter Skelter and Netflix’s Mindhunter.
