Prior to founding Skylark, Amber was the Editorial Director for Orion Children’s Books, where she was privileged to work with a host of prize-winning and bestselling authors including Caroline Lawrence, Juno Dawson and Holly Black. Before that she was Senior Commissioning Editor for Random House Children’s Books after many happy years at Working Partners, where, among other things, she edited and developed the million-copy-selling phenomenon, Rainbow Magic.

Skylark specializes in offering a bespoke service tailor-made to each author’s individual needs. She is always looking for talented writers in any genre, but at the moment she is especially looking for MG mysteries; funny fiction for MG or YA readers; myth or legend-inspired fiction, where the myth or legend is handled in a fresh, new way; unreliable narrators; voice-led fiction; extraordinary writing for any age group!
