Meet the team
Mantle is my imprint at Pan Macmillan, where we focus on publishing high-quality writing and brilliant storytelling with a broad appeal. Our remit is wide, however I always find myself drawn to books about 'the outsider' – characters on the edge of society who want to change things for the better. My authors include C. J. Sansom, Kate Morton and Kate Mosse.
I'm Mantle's Associate Publisher. Like pretty much everyone else, I'm looking for big books with a hook, books that fall firmly into book-club territory. Nothing too commercial or too genre, but nothing too literary either. I have a soft spot for both child narrators and love stories, but generally, I like a book with heart: it has to have emotion. I also tend to like books that make me question what I would do in a given situation. Finally, as far as I'm concerned, you can't beat a good story.
