What led you to decide to set up your own publishing house?
I love books, had been an investment banker before having children and felt that publishing would allow me to marry the two worlds. Also, as I hunted for books for my two boys, I found gaps in the market that I felt should be filled. I also thought I could publish books in the UK whilst living in Dubai, a lesson learnt! Although much of getting a book out into the world can be done online, connecting with people face-to-face, attending book fairs and industry gatherings and getting a deep understanding of the publishing world cannot be underestimated. Although the company has been around for a while, having very recently relocated back to the UK, it is really in 2019 that I have been fully committed to it and feel this is almost the official launch year for Neem Tree Press.
