Hogg leaves Pan Mac after eight years following strategic review

Editorial director Caroline Hogg has left Pan Macmillan after a strategic review of Pan's publishing, the company has announced.

During her eight years at the company, Hogg published Sunday Times bestsellers Lucy Diamond and Karen Swan. She also worked with leading authors including Rachael Lucas, Elaine Everest, Liz Trenow and Tracy Rees, and was part of the publishing team behind Lucinda Riley, who passed away this month.

Before joining Pan Mac, Hogg worked as a commissioning editor at Avon. She started her publishing career as an editorial assistant for Little, Brown before becoming a senior editor on its Sphere imprint.

Lucy Hale, publisher at Pan Fiction, said: “Caroline leaves with all our good wishes for the future. She is a hugely talented editor, much loved by her authors and colleagues alike, and will be missed by all”.

Hogg added: “I am incredibly proud of the things my authors and I achieved during my time at Pan Macmillan — I was so lucky to work with such gifted storytellers and to be part of a publishing team that faced each challenge with energy, skill and good humour. I wish them all the best things for the future.”

While she considers her next steps, Hogg will be taking on some freelance editing and copywriting. She can be reached at caroline_hogg@aol.com.
