Emma Hopkin fell in love with books as a young child, a love affair which has shown no signs of abating in the intervening years.Currently the Managing Director of Bloomsbury Children's and Educational Publishing at Bloomsbury Publishing, she has channeled this enduring love of literature into a successful career that has seen her occupy a number of management roles at various international publishing houses, specifically overseeing children's literature.She was in Australia recently from the UK to meet with the Bloomsbury team here, and promote the launch of their new digital imprint Spark, and so we took the opportunity to sit down with her to ask her when she first realised how powerful books could be, what led her into the publishing industry in the first place, and where she sees the rapidly changing business of selling books going. www.WritersCentre.com.au
