We’re pleased to welcome Sarah Brohman to the newly created post of Editorial Director. Sarah is a pedigreed editor with deep experience acquiring and editing general nonfiction books in the categories of lifestyle, parenting, spirituality, business, self-help, history, and memoir. During her time at Random House of Canada she edited the work of bestselling authors, including Rick Gallop of The GI Diet series and Paul Kropp, author of How to Make Your Child a Reader for Life, and was responsible for running the award-winning cookbook program that included authors such as the former food writing duo of Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid, and Bonnie Stern.
Since leaving Random House of Canada, Sarah has operated a thriving freelance business offering services ranging from editing and content development to publishing consultation, while also working as an online editor for Art Canada Institute.
On top of all that, she is a heart-centred, kind and empathic person, and a pleasure to work with. Sarah will play an instrumental role in LifeTree’s editorial department, providing creative direction on each of our books in development, and helping to shape the direction of our publishing list. She will oversee our freelance and in-house editors, and take the role of lead editor on several books per year. Sarah is based in Hamilton, Ontario. We are lucky to have her join our company, and excited to bring her skills to bear on our projects!
Sarah will be taking over for senior editor Michelle MacAleese, who is leaving LifeTree to pursue freelance opportunities.
