About Ian Skillicorn

Ian SkillicornOver the past three decades I have worked as a writer, translator, audio producer, voice artist and, more recently, publisher.

I’ve worked on projects involving a wide variety of people from first-time novelists to household names from publishing, television, radio and film. I frequently collaborate with writers, publishers, actors and other professionals working in the media, libraries, universities and schools.

My working life began in Milan, Italy, after which I spent twenty years in London and the Home Counties, before moving to Liverpool in 2016.

I am now the owner and director of two publishing imprints, Corazon Books and Wyndham Books. Corazon Books focuses on contemporary fiction and non-fiction, while Wyndham Books specialises in reissuing bestselling fiction by some of the twentieth century’s most successful English language novelists, such as Lucilla Andrews, Ursula Bloom, Catherine Gaskin and Naomi Jacob. Over the past few years, the two imprints have achieved sales of well over half a million copies.

I also run publishing workshops for authors, and am a regular speaker for the Society of Authors, as well as appearing at writing conferences, and on debating and judging panels around the UK.
