An Editorial Director at HarperCollins, Essie Cousins grew up in Hong Kong and New Zealand.

She graduated from the University of Otago, New Zealand, with degrees in Law and English, before moving to the UK to pursue a career in publishing.

She has worked at HarperCollins for over 10 years, and it was through her work on the military history list and her connection to Sylvia May that she first heard about the battle of Kohima and met some of the veterans.

Essie’s family has a long association with India, and both her grandfather and father served with the Gurkhas for many years.
