Katy Loftus


I commission popular fiction across genres, from Richard Osman’s crime classic The Thursday Murder Club, to literary mysteries like Tana French’s The Wych Elm, to timeless love stories like Josie Silver’s One Day in December. I love untold stories and genre-bending writing, like the award-winning The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins, and Cara Hunter’s series of televisual crime novels. I love to roll up my sleeves and edit, and each author that I publish is treated like the unique creator they are. The team who work with me are the best in the industry, and we publish every book on my small list with the ambition of making them a bestseller.
