Prior to joining the publishing trade, I spent 30 years in banking, finance and financial risk management. I think I managed the risk side very well, in getting out of banking just before the financial world went mad – or just too greedy – or both!
- Stellium Ltd (www.stellium.co.uk) – our latest project, covering fiction and digital books, as well as helping out with the (now essential) self-publishing sector.
- Zambezi Publishing Ltd (www.zampub.com) – for all things Mind, Body & Spirit.
We started Zampub about fifteen years ago, and have published a number of very useful books, many of them together with our co-publisher, Sterling Publishing Inc.
I love fly-fishing, golf and the techie side of publishing; Sasha does all the clever stuff, writing, editing & teaching everything to do with books and Mind, Body & Spirit subjects. She has written over 125 books herself, many published by Aquarian, Thorsons, HarperCollins, Piatkus, Collins and Brown, Sterling Publishing Inc. and others – although she still writes the occasional book for us, we have a number of authors in our team, of whom we are really proud.
I’m always interested in hearing from other people, whether it’s about a new tip to pass on, or a question about publishing in general.
