Gary Deane

Gary started his bookselling career almost 20 years ago in his then hometown of Milton Keynes. He quickly discovered a passion for children’s bookselling and programming author events in the community and with local schools. After relocating to East Sussex where he continued programming book shop events he now works in London as the Children’s Events Team Coordinator for Waterstones and he also forms part of the chair committee for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.

I’m delighted to be a panel member for the Hachette Children’s Novel Award 2020 and look forward to working with the teams at Hachette Children’s Group and New Writing North to discover new and emerging voices in children’s writing from the North of England.
