Meet our team

Owner and Director

Michael Wilkinson

Passionate about books that educate, entertain, inspire and infuriate. Always has a love for the next book he’s about to read—he doesn’t have a favourite! 

Credits Margaret and Morry for letting him be himself and to take a risk especially when it came to books and publishing. Is the author of The Phar Lap Story, a book about the son of a bush booking and a young journo, which later became a feature film. 

Associate Publisher

Jess Lomas

Stuns everyone by working in publishing and not drinking coffee. Loves book cover design and has a visceral reaction to movie tie-in covers and overuse of stock art.  

Has a background in corporate communications, film reviewing (there is such a thing as too much free popcorn), as an author and cookbook photographer (well, she tried). Can make a mean charcuterie or antipasto board thanks to her high school job working in a delicatessen. 

Loves pop culture essay collections, smart commercial memoirs, personal development titles with a strong pitch and creative non fiction. Passionate about helping diverse voices tell their stories.

Sales and Distribution Coordinator

Sue-Ann Miller

Unable to function without coffee. Has a whole room dedicated to her love of books and let’s not look on her kindle library! Favourite author is Sarah J Maas, she is her idol and& is counting down the days until her new book is released.

Loves talking to people and making connections with people who are passionate about books. too and get her hooked on a topic Iis known to be able to 'talk underwater'.

From owning her own business to assisting others to build theirs or singing the praises of our authors far and wide, she can often be found in her garden contemplating life’s pleasures.

Digital Marketing Coordinator

Cassie Chiong

Green tea and English breakfast enthusiast (not counting the coffee, of course) who’s yet to have mastery over the reading and watching binge. Has a background in film and television production, goes hard on the letter-writing and has a soft spot for the city of Boston. 

With a full first name inspired by a Trojan priestess, it’s no surprise that she adores historical fiction and the classics, but don’t quote her on that because she ultimately loves character-driven pieces and books that can make her really think (or laugh, she’s not picky).
