The Hodderscape Team


Molly Powell

Molly Powell is a Commissioning Editor at Hodder & Stoughton, who is continually surprised and delighted that – contrary to her teachers’ opinions – her teenage obsession with reading science fiction and fantasy under the desk has turned into an Actual Job. In classic book nerd form, she has an abundance of bookshelves, two ragdoll cats called Nettle and Sage, and is in a very serious and committed relationship with English Breakfast tea.

Natasha Qureshi

Natasha (Tash) Qureshi is the Hodderscape Assistant Editor. Her walkinglikeabadass song is I Hate Myself for Loving You by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, she loves playing Catan, listening to bardcore, the colour green, dark chocolate, flirting, cheering her friends on, falling asleep on the sofa, and vintage horror t-shirts. She hates: mornings without coffee, running late, and when people ask her what her favourite book is. Her idols are the Lumpy Space Princess, Marvin the Paranoid Android, and Tank Girl. She wishes she could have seen the hanging gardens of Babylon.

Callie Robertson

Callie is Digital Marketing Manager at Hodder & Stoughton. She is an obsessive fantasy reader, book blogger, and Animal-Crosser. She spends a lot of time discussing the Meaning of Life with her dog, Betsy. She is always trying to write a book, before deciding she is probably better suited to selling other people’s work than creating her own. She strongly believes in the Wine Wednesday movement, and the Oxford comma.

Laura Bartholomew

Laura is a Marketing Executive at Hodder & Stoughton. Her favourite books are almost always an epic fantasy or romance and she still cannot believe she gets to read these sorts of books for work. She loves sunsets (and taking a whole load of pictures of them), eating pasta and visiting anywhere old, beautiful and historical. She can often be found giggling at TikTok in the evenings, drinking wine or attempting to be the next Nigella Lawson in the kitchen (unsuccessfully so far).

Kate Keehan

Lydia Blagden

Lydia Blagden is a Cover Designer at Hodder & Stoughton and can normally be found, biscuit in hand, wondering how she got so lucky that Making Pretty Things is a full-time job. She lives in perpetual envy of the rest of the team’s access to adorable animals but makes do with daily (she wishes) frequent updates about her parent’s dog Rosa, and a part-time cat.

Sofia Hericson

Sofia Hericson is the Marketing Designer at Hodder & Stoughton and she loves reading horror and Sci-Fi books (especially at Halloween!). A fan of all things spooky, she has three adorable cats and loves throwing awesome themed costume parties. She aims to keep a perfect balance between scary and kawaii stuff in her life.
