      Publishing Director

      Mike Harpley

      I publish a broad range of narrative non-fiction. I’m particularly interested in engaging titles that present new ideas about the world around us – whether in current affairs, investigative journalism, psychology, history, technology, business, sports or popular science. I’m also a fan of books that combine humour or memoir with accessible explorations of a topic.  

      I love working closely with authors to develop their ideas into books and finding bestsellers in unexpected places – often chiming with contemporary concerns and debates. 

      Some of the authors I am proud to have published include John Kampfner (Why the Germans Do it Better), Martin Ford (The Rise of the Robots), Isabel Hardman (Why We Get the Wrong Politicians), Chris Atkins (A Bit of a Stretch), Yvette Cooper (She Speaks) and Robin Ince (The Importance of Being Interested).
