Sphere promotes Dauman to senior commissioning editor

Lucy Dauman has been promoted to senior commissioning editor at Sphere fiction. 

Dauman joined Sphere from HarperCollins in 2016, and since then has published a broad range of crime and thriller authors for Sphere fiction including Vanessa Savage’s debut, The Woman in the Dark, which published earlier this month. 

In her new role Dauman will continue to acquire and publish crime and thriller as well as general fiction.

Lucy Malagoni, publisher at Sphere Fiction, said: “Lucy is a hugely talented editor and publisher, someone who brings tremendous care and creativity to her publishing and I am thrilled to be recognising her brilliant work with this well-deserved promotion.”

Dauman added: “I am delighted to be taking up the role of senior commissioning editor and continuing to work with such inspiring colleagues and authors. It's been brilliant working with Sphere for the past two years and I'm excited to put our shared vision for the list into action.”
