Matilda Johnson

Editorial Director

After four years at David Fickling Books, Tilda moved to Penguin Random House before joining the Hot Key Books and Piccadilly Press team as Senior Commissioning Editor.

There she worked closely with both emerging and established children’s and YA authors, including Andy Shepherd, Mark Lowery, Isla Fisher, Jo Cotterill and Sebastien de Castell. Alongside Golden Egg, Tilda now works as a freelance children’s fiction editor for publishers such as Usborne and Pushkin, as well as running Children’s Books North, the voluntary network she co-founded in 2020.
