Eddie joined Usborne Publishing in 2017. He is possibly the tallest editor that’s ever worked here, reaching a whopping 6ft 4”. That’s nearly half the height of an adult giraffe. He lives with two of his oldest and dearest friends above a little shop in Peckham, where he cooks up grand feasts and tinkles tunes on his piano. Before joining Usborne, Eddie studied German and French, then moved to Berlin to work two very different jobs – one as a translator, and the other as an MC at a karaoke bar. Now back in the UK, he writes books about all sorts, including computers, fairy tales, maps and engineering, and he loves it.
