Andrew started his publishing career selling rights to illustrated trade non-fiction for Cassell. After brief stints packaging non-fiction and selling rights to medical books, he joined Hodder Children’s Books where he spent 21 years with Hachette’s Hodder Children’s Books before moving to Scotland in July 2019.
Andrew has worked in every major rights market and particularly enjoys delving into smaller and more remote markets to spread the joy of reading. Working in rights and senior management has given him a detailed, nuanced understanding of publishing processes and the global book industry. Andrew was the British Book Awards Rights Professional of the Year in 2019. Andrew started working with FROM YOU TO ME mid 2020 and is enjoying spreading the product ethos around the globe.
