My first job in publishing was: Regarding publishing in its broadest sense, selling advertising space.

I’m currently reading: I’ve just finished, Great New Zealand Argument, edited by Russell Smith. It’s a been around for a while now, published in 2005, but contains some thought provoking ideas. “Time for a new edition Russell.”

My biggest career highlight in publishing has been: First publishing Gail Loane’s book I’ve Got something to Say. Leading Young Writers to Authorship, in 2010, with 3 reprints and selling the worldwide rights to  Routledge – T & J Francis in the UK. Every primary school teacher should have a copy. Plenty of ideas for anyone staring out on a writing career as well.
