Burke promoted at Little, Brown

Little, Brown Book Group has promoted Catherine Burke to the role of publisher, Sphere Fiction, with immediate effect.

Burke joined Sphere three years ago, and has since published authors including Judy Finnigan, Marina Anderson, Carole Matthews, Alex Marwood and Chevy Stevens.

Burke said she “couldn't be prouder” to take on the role of running the Sphere fiction list.

Little, Brown Book Group publisher David Shelley paid tribute to her as a “fantastic” publisher.
