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.

Morgan Springett

Morgan Springett is a PA/admin assistant at Hodder & Stoughton. A childhood lover of all things medieval (he so wanted to be a knight) it was only natural that Morgan progressed into things more out of this world. Now he reads and watches anything science fiction or fantasy, but still has a soft spot for Errol Flynn in tights.
