Emma Herdman

Emma HerdmanI’ve previously worked as a buyer at Waterstones and a junior agent at Curtis Brown Literary Agency, and am now a senior editor at Hodder & Stoughton, so I have experience of working with authors from all angles! I’m passionate about the editorial process, about providing authors with that sounding board and objective opinion to suggest tweaks and talk through sticky plot points.

My speciality is fiction – especially literary fiction for the reading group market, including everything from Anne Tyler to Liane Moriarty, and Emily St John Mandel to Iain Banks, by way of Liza Klaussmann and Rosamund Lupton, so am happy to work with a huge variety of genres within the book club remit.


  • Fiction.


I’m happy to adapt to whatever is needed/appropriate in each case.


  • By Skype/telephone
  • By email
  • In person.
