Sam Jackson

Editorial Director

I am Editorial Director with many years of experience commissioning, positioning, editing and project managing books across mass consumer and academic markets in the UK. I am passionate about the creative writing process and, being a writer myself, I am committed to helping new and more established writers develop their ideas and hone their unique voice and style. I have been commissioning for Vermilion for the past eight years and I oversee our parenting list. I also cover the areas of health, personal development, popular psychology and relationships. Some of the books I have been most proud to publish here include How to Wean Your Baby (Charlotte Stirling-Reed), At Mama’s Table by Rochelle Humes, Get Divorced Be Happy by Helen Thorn, F*** You Cancer (Deborah James) and The Little Book of Self-Care For New Mums (Beccy Hands and Alexis Stickland).
