HC buys three from Chambers

HarperCollins has acquired three titles by Billie Jo author Kimberley Chambers.

Sarah Ritherdon, HC publishing director, bought world English rights to three titles from Tim Bates at Pollinger Limited. Publication is scheduled for spring 2012. Ritherdon said: “I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with Kimberley and bring her wonderful books to as many readers as possible. Kimberley is a star in the making, and inspires amazing loyalty from her fans.”

Chambers worked as a minicab driver, market trader and pub DJ before becoming a full-time writer. Her first novel Billie Jo was published in 2008, and she has since published Born Evil, The Betrayer, The Feud, and The Traitor.
