Clare is a highly experienced publisher and past winner of the UK Young Publisher of the Year award. She worked for number of the larger publishing houses including Hodder, Orion, John Wiley and Pearson before co-founding The Friday Project in 2005 where she published a number of brilliant books including In Search of Adam and bestselling non-fiction Blood, Sweat and Tea and Confessions of a GP. TFP was sold to HarperCollins in 2008 and Clare stayed on until 2009 before leaving to offer publishing consultancy services under the banner of The Book Guru. She launched RedDoor in 2014.
Heather has 18 years’ experience in the world of publishing. She has worked for a variety of publishing houses, including Hodder Headline, The Friday Project, HarperCollins, Virgin, and most recently Anova (Pavilion), as Commissioning Editor for Good Housekeeping books. She has worked on a somewhat eclectic range of fiction and non-fiction titles – from Health & Fitness, MBS, Medical and Cookery, to Humour, Travel, Adult and Autobiography – with a little bit of children’s thrown in for good measure. Heather’s experience makes her the linchpin of RedDoor; she can project manage, create copy, commission, co-ordinate a photoshoot, and can even hand-model on demand. She is the ultimate pair of safe editorial hands.
