Caroline Hogg has worked in publishing for almost ten years, at Little, Brown Book Group and more recently at Avon, HarperCollins. She's currently at Pan Macmillan as Senior Commissioning Editor for Commercial Women's Fiction. She knows her stuff!
Today's question comes from a Novelicious reader who asks:
Why do you edit Women's Fiction?
Caroline says: Because I love it, simple as that. With women’s fiction you get the most amazing range of stories, emotions, twists and turns, and laughs. ‘Women’s fiction’ covers a maddeningly wide range of authors, simply put together because they are women (I won’t open this particular can of worms, because I could be here forever otherwise) and they write about every angle of life, good and bad, heartwarming and heartbreaking. What more could you ask for?
