'Creative, knowledgeable and totally dependable, Mandy is an absolute joy to work with. I can't recommend her too highly.'

Rona Selby, Editorial Director, Andersen Press

'I've known Mandy Archer for over 14 years, as a colleague initially at Kingfisher and BBC Worldwide and now as a freelance writer for Ladybird. Mandy is a consummate professional. She delivers manuscripts in a timely fashion and always goes the extra mile for projects. She brings great creativity, market knowledge and enthusiasm to the table. Mandy's flexibility and experience means that she is equally effective creating fantasy worlds as she is at writing KS1 workbooks. Her calm, never-flustered manner reassures her clients and her discretion is an unquestioned given.'

Heather Crossley, Editorial Director, Ladybird Books

'I have worked with Mandy Archer for many years on a range of licensed character projects which have involved Mandy writing, editing and project managing a programme of titles. Mandy is a very creative and enthusiastic editor and contributes a great deal in the conception and planning of a book or programme. She is very organised and reliable; you can count on her to deliver an excellent book, on time and on budget. She shows great initiative and is a problem solver, thereby needing very little support from the publisher, which is a real bonus. Most of all, Mandy is a lovely person and an enormous pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for all editorial and project management work in children's publishing.'

Ingrid Selberg, Director of Children's Publishing, Simon & Schuster UK

'Mandy has written many story books for me while I've been working at HarperCollins. She writes beautifully, can craft wonderful stories and activities for boys and girls of all ages, delivers on time and is a joy to work with.'

Neil Dunnicliffe, Editorial Director, Properties and Picture Books, HarperCollins
