Piatkus Books was launched twenty-eight years ago from the spare bedroom of Judy Piatkus’ home in Loughton, Essex. Judy wanted to publish fiction that people would enjoy reading and non-fiction that would be entertaining, stimulating and informative.
Over the years Piatkus has become one of the UK’s leading independent publishers of fiction and lifestyle titles. We have joined forces with Little, Brown in order to bring our wonderful range of books to an even wider readership.
Piatkus will continue to be an independent imprint within Little, Brown, specialising in non-fiction and fiction. Our lifestyle list covers the areas of health, mind, body and spirit, self-help, business, personal development and all the topics that interest people in their daily lives. It includes international authorities such as Patrick Holford, the UK’s leading nutritionist, and bestselling MBS authors Brian Weiss and Sylvia Browne.
