Collectively we have over 70 years' experience in business.

 

 We understand that finding your feet in the Publishing Industry can be a struggle. The five of us have had many walks of life and found ourselves in publishing via different pathways. We all bring our own backgrounds, expertise and knowledge not only to the team, but to those we work with side by side during the publishing process.

Founder & Author

Favourite Book

Flight into Freedom

by Eileen Caddy

Daisa has been in business her entire adult life; from selling windows and doors, to designing kitchens, becoming a Reiki Master, building and opening a vibrant hotel of tranquility. She has certainly done it all! As an Author, Daisa has felt the sting of rejection letters and so in 2013, that is when she decided to start her own publishing company; Daisa Publishing was founded. 

 

After several years of development, kissing a few frogs and doing the legwork, Daisa is now able to offer guidance, support and publishing services for other aspiring Authors. She was awarded the Female Entrepreneur Award in 2018.

The Magic Faraway Tree

by Enid Blyton

Jemma has been at Daisa Publishing since February 2019 where she started a four week work experience. Jemma graduated in 2018 with an Honours in Publishing and Media from Oxford Brookes University. After graduating, she worked at a FTSE 100 Financial Investment Company but decided to follow her heart back into publishing.

Jemma's degree was centered around the publishing business in both print and digital for books and consumer magazines. This covered all areas of editing, formatting, design, sales and marketing... you name it! For both traditional and self-publishing routes. 

 

Jemma says that she could never have imagined working for a more passionate, forward-thinking and fun team as at Daisa Publishing.

Favourite Book

Captain Flynn & the Pirate Dinosaurs

by Giles Andreae

Wayne has always drawn. At an early age he decided he wanted to be a cartoonist. To have a comic strip in a newspaper like my heroes Charles Schulz and Jim Davis was all he needed and still works toward this goal. When he was 16 he was offered an apprenticeship at DC Thompson who produced, among other things, The Beano and The Dandy. Wayne didn’t go because it was based in Dundee and he was 16 and not ready for that kind of change. 

Carrying out work for a variety of clients Wayne has produced illustrations for children’s books internationally, concept art for stop motion animation studios and finished 3D style painted art for award winning commercial pieces. 

Wayne has worked for Publishers such as Paragon, Hachette and Pavillion, brands such as Barclay Card, Bouygues and an off shoot of DreamWorks Animation Studios. He has also been involved in several projects with a Manchester based Animation company, several of which have won awards.
