Caroline Hulse - Editor

Caroline Hulse is a writer of book club fiction with offbeat humour. Her work has been published in fourteen languages and optioned for television.

Caroline is the author of The Adults (2018), Like A House On Fire (2020), and All The Fun Of The Fair (2021). Her work has been published to significant critical acclaim and press reviews. She finds the comedy in the gaps between how people see themselves and how other books’ themes are best exemplified by the phrase, ‘the road to hell is paved with good intentions.’

Caroline has a degree in English Literature from the University of Sheffield. She worked in Human Resources for seventeen years, writing books in the evenings and weekends, before becoming a professional writer. She has extensive experience of coaching and mentoring, and loves helping other authors get the best out of their writing.

Caroline lives in Manchester, UK, with her husband and a small controlling dog.

"Caroline’s feedback was brilliant. She was so helpful and came up with excellent clear guidance on next steps."

Caroline is our go-to editor for anything comedic, especially when it falls under the book club or women’s fiction umbrella. She’s an expert at pulling out what’s funny, while still paying a close eye to key building blocks of story like plot and character. Caroline believes books are created in the editing process, and she’d love to be part of yours. Find out more about Caroline’s work and approach to editing in our interview with her here.


Writing a successful book is about craft as well as talent, and authors at all levels benefit from external insight. Many of us, when asking for editorial feedback, want to hear ‘it’s perfect, don’t change a thing!’ –  often published authors secretly want to hear this too! – but that isn’t what you’ll get from me. My work gets immeasurably better as a result of thoughtful edits, and I want you to feel the same about yours.

Before looking at how your book works on a sentence level, I firstly consider it as a whole, and focus on making the recommendations that will have the biggest impact. A book’s vision is the author’s, not the editor’s, so any changes and decisions will ultimately be yours, but I will provide direction to help you think these through. All the while, I will champion your book’s strengths, and help you feel energised for the work ahead.

I read widely: particularly crime and thrillers, book club and literary fiction, and historical and women’s fiction.
