Michelle Madden - Editor Assessments

Michelle Madden is a commissioning editor for Penguin Random House Young Readers. For nearly twenty years, she has worked with some of Australia’s finest authors and illustrators, as well as being a part of collaborations between book creators and sporting and media stars. She enjoys fiction and non-fiction for all ages from early childhood to YA.


Michelle is looking at illustrations, junior fiction and picture books which are child appropriate and enjoyable. She's not after anything too educational or dry, or stories too similar to books Penguin RandomHouse have on their list.
