My first job in publishing was… Administrative assistant with Helen Benton and Bob Ross at Tandem Press, ca. 1999.
I’m currently reading… I tried giving science fiction a go and have just finished reading An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon, but it’s not for me. Back to literary fiction I go, once I can tear myself away from wasting time on Twitter.
My biggest career highlight in publishing has been… I can’t pinpoint one particular highlight but I am proud that we are still managing to produce New Zealand textbooks here at Edify. I am particularly proud of the new editions of David Barton’s Alpha and Beta Mathematics (David has sold over 2 Million copies of his maths books over the years), as well as the superb New Zealand Chef by Lesley Christensen-Yule and Lindsay Neill, 4th edition.
