Sarah Odedina, formerly Editor-in-chief of Bloomsbury's children's division, is the Managing Director of the all new Hot Key Books where the focus will be on fiction for 9 plus. The interesting name derives from the power of stories to open doors and feed the imagination of readers.
Under Bloomsbury, she was the brains behind Harry Potter and now she is heading up her own imprint, aiming to publish thirty to fifty books a year. So, 2012 already looks good for writers and readers alike!
Here is Sarah's wishlist which does not contain the jewellery or mince pies she told us she wanted as well. Cake's still there though.
1 That every christmas stocking in the country has a book in it
2 That the children's book market has a boom year in 2012
3 That I don't eat too much Christmas cake - which I apparently find irresistible.
And what's her favourite book?
