Sebastian Handley's influential inside story of 'Brexit, How the Nobodies Beat the Somebodies' was the first non-fiction work sold by NAC.
As the number of such works represented by NAC grows our 'NAC Non-fiction' initiative aims to attract authors with strong public profiles, rich and varied experiences, stories to intrigue and entertain the world.
'NAC Non-fiction' will parallel 'NAC Fiction' and 'NAC Children', and in its early stages will be headed by CEO, Michael Cybulski.
Jenny Walsh & Lesley Hammond will now join Sebastian, relating many unique experiences over 30 years' world travel in pursuit of their ever-popular 32 natural history documentaries and, now, several feature films. Their planned book series for children will sit with NAC's children's works (DA Doraisamy's 'Action Series', Sarah East's 'Because You're You!', Steve Rogers 'Don't Pick Your Nose, Leo').
Update - the keenly anticipated follow up to Sebastian Handley's work on Brexit is on track to publishers May 2019. (190321)
