Ru Merritt

Senior Commissioning Editor

I’m drawn to people who are incredibly passionate about what they do – whether that’s in the world of food & drink, wellbeing, memoir, or trend-led subjects, they stand out as writers who have something new to say and share with the world. They could be experts through qualifications or experience, but they’ll be building a community who are equally excited about what they’re doing. I also love books with a sense of humour or a clear promise and concept that offers knowledge and practical tips for readers in a buzzy and engaging way.
