Our mission is to make HarperImpulse the home for good story telling, however you want to write it, however you want to read it – so really I’m looking for anything! Saying that, I’m a big fan of WWI Literature – Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy, Birdsong, Susan Hill’s Strange Meeting – and with 2014 marking 100 years since the Great War, it would be wonderful to publish some fantastic stories to commemorate the anniversary. Also I can never resist a good saga… I’d love to find the next Catherine Cookson!
Charlotte Ledger began working in publishing in 2011 and has always been a book lover but, since watching her first episode of Dawson’s Creek when she was 13, she’s found it impossible to resist a good love story! Pacey Witter stole her heart and her life it seems as her addiction for all things romance eventually led to her working at Mills & Boon. Thrilled to be at Harper Impulse, she can’t wait to fall in love with your submissions and find the next exciting new voices in Romance. So what are you waiting for? The inbox is open! Charlotte is addicted to Cinnabons and quoting episodes of New Girl. She appeared on an episode of Flog It dressed up as Jane Austen and she once met Jack Nicholson when she 11 and still goes on about it but then again, wouldn’t you?
