Heather Boisseau – Publishing Manager

Heather has 16 years’ experience in the world of publishing. She has worked for a variety of publishing houses, including Hodder Headline, The Friday Project, HarperCollins, Virgin, and most recently Anova (Pavilion), as Commissioning Editor for Good Housekeeping books. She has worked on a somewhat eclectic range of fiction and non-fiction titles – from Health & Fitness, MBS, Medical and Cookery, to Humour, Travel, Adult and Autobiography – with a little bit of children’s thrown in for good measure. Heather’s experience make her the linchpin of RDP; she can project manage, create copy, commission, co-ordinate a photoshoot, and can even hand-model on demand. She is the ultimate pair of safe editorial hands. She is thrilled to be working with Clare at RedDoor, on what is already an exciting, dynamic, and diverse list of books.
