More about Michael Joseph books
Michael Joseph specialises in women’s fiction, crime, thrillers, cookery, memoirs and lifestyle books. Many of our authors are now, or soon will be, household names in the UK and around the world. We publish the very best authors in each field and bring their books to the widest possible audience. We take each author’s vision and turn it into a beautiful, desirable book for everyone to talk about.
Michael Joseph’s women’s fiction list is second to none. We publish established brand novelists like Marian Keyes or Jojo Moyes and we sign up and launch debut novelists, bringing our authors to the many readers they deserve. If you’re interested in historical, adventure, action or psychological thriller fiction, we have some of the finest novelists writing today. These are writers that readers come back to every year because, without fail, they tell entertaining, thrilling and, above all, enjoyable stories every single time.
Penguin has always been noted for its excellent crime fiction, and Michael Joseph has assembled a new roster of authors who have been making themselves at home on the bestseller lists. With our great connections to bloggers as well as our regular visits to crime festivals alongside our writers, we have a genuinely supportive community of authors – our very own murder club.
Whether it is the country’s bestselling cookery writer – Jamie Oliver – or a debut from the brightest and freshest young chefs working on the latest foodie pop-up, our list covers everything from scrumptious treats to healthy eating, from how to cater for events to how to eat well on just a few pennies per meal.
It could be a tale that no-one has heard before or it could be the secrets behind the success of the already famous – either way, we aim to make our authors’ memoirs, well, memorable. We work only with people who’ve got a real story to tell and we turn those stories into irresistible reads. We also get our authors out on the road, hosting events up and down the country, where they can meet their legions of fans, old and new.
When it comes to books to help you feel energised and revitalised, look no further than the fabulous talent on the Michael Joseph list. Health and well-being is a core specialist area, and our range of publishing is extensive. So, from exercise and style advice to mindfulness and well-being, you’re only a few pages away from a healthier, happier you.
