Lena McCauley

After studying economics at university and then realising she had no interest working for a bank, Lena McCauley instead attended the Colombia Publishing Course and started a career in publishing. She worked briefly in New York for HarperCollins and then Penguin, before moving to London in 2012, where she joined Scholastic and worked on brands such as The Hunger Games and Captain Underpants. Now a Senior Commissioning Editor at Hachette Children’s Group, Lena has her dream job of commissioning and editing titles for children and teens, ranging from illustrated young fiction to middle grade and all the way up to YA, working with authors such as Michael Mann, Jewell Parker Rhodes and Onjali Q. Raúf.
