Editorial Director for Humanities and Languages
At university I specialised in American History, first at Keele then at Sussex University.
Since 1987 I have been commissioning Humanities books and digital resources for secondary schools. I built up the John Murray History list, then when John Murray was bought by Hodder Education in 2002 I took over the management of the combined Humanities strengths of John Murray and Hodder Education.
As well as being Editorial Director I still commission History titles and in particular the books and resources from the Schools History Project and from Ben Walsh. Titles that I have commissioned have been awarded a range of prizes: winning the TES textbook award and also the Longman-History Today 'New Generation' Book of the year.
I was formerly Chair of the Educational Publishers History Panel - representing the industry in meetings with government education departments in their initiatives in History education. I serve on the Schools History Project's Advisory Group and I am an Honorary Fellow of the Historical Association. I tweet as @HodderHistory.
I am really interested in curriculum development and in working out how publishers like us can best help make teaching and learning more effective and more fun in schools.
Away from work I ♥ cycling and gardening and get far too excited about Premier League Fantasy Football!

Head of Humanities and Northern Ireland Publishing
I am responsible for publishing History and Religious Studies resources and have commissioned series such as Access to History and Edexcel Modern World History over the past few years.
I enjoy working with teachers, examiners and authors to develop resources that help support the teaching and learning of the subject.
I am Chair of the Educational Publishers Council History Panel - a body that brings together all the History Publishers in different companies.
