Amy Thomas - Editor Assessments

Amy Thomas is a commissioning editor for Penguin Random House and works with many of their award-winning and beloved authors. She edits and commissions across the Penguin Random House Young Readers list.



Amy will be assessing junior, middle-grade and YA fiction (and non-fiction), picture books and illustration folios. All genres, but especially exceptional middle-grade and YA fantasy, and heartfelt work for all ages that possesses a distinct voice and compelling storytelling. Exciting and diverse stories and authentic characters drawn with humour and heart; richly imagined characters and world building. Stories that are uniquely told and unputdownable, and work that moves or delights, and is always centred on a child or teenager's experience.


She will not be assessing Educational or overly didactic storytelling or works of non-fiction.
