Selina heads up the Century and Arrow hardcover and paperback imprints at Penguin Random House, publishers of commercial fiction and non-fiction.

She work with authors as wonderfully diverse and creative as EL James, Anthony Horowitz, Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner, Tony Parsons, Simon Kernick, Lisa Jewell, and Katie Fforde. Later this year, she is publishing an upmarket historical novel by Lara Prescott whose debut The Secrets We Kept is the story behind the writing and subsequent publication of Dr Zhivago.

Says Selina “I love to acquire new fiction and to edit. Books have the power to change people’s lives, and I always start reading each new submission thinking this could be it — the one that does just this. And occasionally — very occasionally — it is!”
