Kathryn Cheshire

Kathryn is the Commissioning Editor on the HarperCollins Crime & Thriller team.

She works with authors across the crime and thriller spectrum, and her recent acquisitions include a serial killer thriller with true crime elements, an Italian World War 2 detective thriller, a fun psychological thriller set on a Hawaiian island, a James Bond spin-off trilogy, and a literary mystery set in rural England.

She works with a number of successful ongoing commercial authors such as Jackie Kabler, Alex Lake and Lisa Stone, and also supports the team on some of their brand authors like A. J. Finn, Karin Slaughter, Jane Casey and S. J. Parris.

She is open to seeing anything crime/thriller related, and is very excited to find new voices to help make the world of crime and thriller fiction more diverse. She is really looking forward to hearing from Asian women writers in this area, and is available for consultations, submission reviews and mentorship.
