The Cornerstone division is lively, opinionated, curious, eclectic and above all passionate – and that suits me to a tee. We have a diverse range of imprints publishing from the mass market to the literary, business books to Merky Books, fiction to nonfiction, and a wonderful mix of authors from established names to brand new. Luckily for me my career has been characterised by working alongside inspired and inspiring people from a whole host of backgrounds, and I relish the opportunities that leading creative talent brings. 

A book that's left a deep impression on me: When I first discovered books – and the utter bliss of giving yourself over to reading – the stories which made the most lasting impression were always tales of strong fearless girls surviving peril, saving lives, changing the world… 

My literary hero: And in the same vein my literary heroes are all heroines: Maya Angelou, Angela Carter, Louisa May Alcott, Lorna Sage…

A book I'd recommend to everyone: Impossible to choose just one book to recommend to everyone but I am very fond of A Good Man is Hard to Find.
