Transworld's Gaminara to retire

Bantam Press publishing director Sally Gaminara is to retire this year.

Gaminara’s publishing career has spanned nearly 40 years, and she joined Transworld’s Corgi imprint in 1987 from Penguin Books. She moved to the Doubleday team in 1989, where she published Prince Charles' book, A Vision of Britain.

Gaminara became publishing director of Bantam Press in 1996, and has published authors including Stephen Hawking, Richard Dawkins, Nick Robinson, Martin Gilbert, Bill Browder, Jim Al-Khalili and Jeremy Isaacs. She was responsible for bringing Madeleine Wickham, who writes as Sophie Kinsella to the Transworld list when she bought her first novel, The Tennis Party, to Black Swan back in 1995.

Gaminara will retire at the end of September 2015.
