I’m Sally Collings, founder of Red Hill Publishing.
Before I started Red Hill Publishing, I wrote six books under my own name (the very first was an immediate bestseller) and was ghostwriter for more than a dozen others, working with business leaders and media stars.
Earlier still, I was a senior editor with HarperCollins, executive editor with Websters Multimedia in London, and editorial director with UK publisher Amber Books.
From my first day working in publishing I’ve considered myself fortunate to be in the business of turning stories into books.
One day my boss at HarperCollins said:
“Sally, your strength is your 360-degree view of a book. You consider it all: the text, the cover, the illustrations, the paper. Not many people do that.”
This comment got me thinking.
What if I could take this talent, honed in some of the best publishing houses in the world, to honor and preserve the stories of family enterprises?
Today, I do just that.
Only a few years after opening our doors, Red Hill Publishing is the premier maker of family-business books in the United States.
We are family owned and operated, so it is a true pleasure for us to celebrate the legacy of other family enterprises.
