About the speakers:
Keshini Naidoo has extensive experience of breaking books into bestseller status, with her biggest authors selling millions of copies in digital sales alone. Having started her editorial career at Avon (HarperCollins UK), she then moved to being Associate Publisher at Bookouture, where she published global bestsellers including Angela Marsons and Kathryn Croft.She was named a Bookseller Rising Star in 2017 because she has “unabashedly embraced commercial titles”.
Keshini loves all genres of commercial fiction – from dark psychological thrillers with a twist that leaves you breathless to cosy romance that comforts like a mug of steaming hot chocolate, she always has a book (or three) on the go. She’s passionate about bringing the best stories to life on the page and wants to publish books that keep you reading until the wee small hours.
Ally Sinclair grew up on the North Yorkshire coast and is a writer, tutor, editor and blogger. She is a tutor for the Open University and is a former chair of the RNA. She writes bestselling novels as Alison May, Juliet Bell, and for Hera Books as Ally Sinclair.
Kiley Dunbar is a Scot living over the border in Northern England where she teaches English and creative writing at the Manchester Writing School, devours romance novels, fusses over Amos the Bedlington Terrier, and loves two little Dunbars. She thinks making imaginary people find happiness and fall in hopelessly in love has to be the best job in the world. The Gingerbread Christmas Village is her 9th cosy rom com for Hera Books.
