Picture Books Fiction Non-fiction Grown-up BooksI have worked on a range of picture books, illustrated non-fiction, fiction and books for 'grown-ups'.
We think Sophie is great to work with because...
A wonderfully attentive and supportive editor, she brought excellent insights and good judgement to helping the book be its best.
It’s as if I had stamped “HANDLE WITH CARE” on the manuscript. Sophie made wonderful suggestions, and I was comfortable choosing the ones that I felt worked for me.
Sophie shows flair for the creative side of children’s publishing and understands overall strategy as well as detailed tasks across all distribution and publishing areas, including commissioning, art directing, rights, management and editorial, along with export sales.

We cannot commend Sophie highly enough for her rigorous dedication to making literature accessible to and representative of all children.
Creativity never stops.
