Headline was founded in 1986 and as a small independent publishing company won the prestigious Publisher of the Year Award in 1992. Subsequently we have become a thriving division of the publishing giant Hachette UK.
Headline has an outstanding track record in publishing both fiction and non-fiction. On our fiction list, giant commercial brand names including Martina Cole, Jill Mansell, Sheila O’Flanagan, Simon Scarrow and Penny Vincenzi rub shoulders with the Orange Prize-winning Andrea Levy and other award-winning and No. 1 bestsellers such as Neil Gaiman, Victoria Hislop and Jed Rubenfeld. Headline’s non-fiction programme is equally eclectic, including autobiographies from Jo Brand and Sir Bobby Charlton, Geraint Anderson’s shocking exposé of city life CITY BOY, cookery books from bestsellers Mary Berry and Gennaro Contaldo, the business must-have title THE 80 MINUTE MBA by Richard Reeves and John Knell, and Lawrence Dallaglio’s hilarious RUGBY TALES.
