Jon Wood has worked in UK publishing for over twenty years. After a brief career in sales, he moved over to become a commissioning editor at Hodder in 1998, before joining Orion Publishing in 2000. During his editorial career he has worked with authors such as Ian Rankin, Harlan Coben, Kate Mosse, Anthony Horowitz, Andy McNab, Michelle Paver, Denise Mina, RJ Ellory and Joanne Harris.
From 2003, he ran the Orion Fiction imprint before later combining that with responsibility for the Victor Gollancz SFF list. In 2015, he was promoted to the role of Orion Group Publisher.
In 2018, he moved to Rogers, Coleridge and White and is now building a list of commercial fiction and non-fiction projects. He is looking for entertaining and diverse stories, well told from right across the spectrum – crime, thrillers, bookclub fiction and SFF. He is also interested in narrative non-fiction, popular science, sport, politics and ideas projects.
