Barbara has published two books, is the publisher on two imprints and chips in with readers reports and inspiration. She has been running her own hypnotherapy practice and training school for twenty years. She works with an international clientele as a therapist, coach and healer. Her time is split between the UK and the Greek Island of Lesvos where she hosts writing and healing retreats. She will, however, go where the wind takes her.
John works mainly on the editorial side. He drifted into publishing after getting a scholarship to Oxford University and a Double First degree in English, back in the mid 1970s. Having worked for publishers large and small, he started John Hunt Publishing Ltd as a co-edition (packaging color books) publisher in 1989, and over the last decade it has been reinventing itself as a trade publisher. He’s written a couple of books himself to try figuring out how this author/publisher process works.
