I’m thrilled to introduce you to Ebury. My two areas of focus are people and strategy. Whether with editors or authors I’m a proactive, positive and supportive force, encouraging excellence and strong collaboration. I and the team will continue to grow Ebury as a multi-specialist publisher that knows each of its markets better than its competitors, and find ways to build value for our authors beyond the book.
DEPUTY MANAGING DIRECTOR & PUBLISHER

I have a long-standing love of popular non-fiction, including memoir, popular culture, comedy and music and have commissioned and edited bestsellers from Caitlin Moran, Terry Pratchett, Danny Wallace, Chrissie Hynde, Dave Gorman, Emma Kennedy, and Paul Merton.
