Martin Toseland has worked at a senior editorial level at Penguin Press and HarperCollins until October 2006, when he decided to concentrate on his own writing. Since then he’s written or ghosted over twenty books – fiction and non-fiction – on a comically broad range of subjects including misheard song lyrics, a CFO’s view of good business practice, the Grand Harbour in Malta, a novel set in the Amazon rainforest, and, recently, a book written entirely in emoji. He’s currently working on a television biography, a book about drinking, a travel book and a thriller. He also provides editorial consultancy for fiction and non-fiction titles and represents a select list of authors.
