Orion, Sales and Marketing Director

When I needed to employ a publicist someone said take a look at this bloke, he's clever, he is so so keen. In walked Brendan, upside-down hair, jiggling, dark suit, engaging smile and unbridled enthusiasm, a passion for books that was immediately impressive. The success of Orion books in Australia, in particular Gollancz, was in no small part due to Brendo and his championing of books and of authors. He was a great asset, a creative publicist, a situation rectifier and a man who got things done. He never let me or our authors down professionally or personally. He's top shelf.
