They started their career as a PA first to Jamie Byng at Canongate, then Nick Landau and Vivian Cheung at Titan, after working as a Waterstones bookseller. Joining the editorial commissioning team at Unbound, they built a fiction list that had four titles on the Guardian‘s 2018 Not the Booker longlist.
