Editorial Director of Voice/Hyperion Leaves to Start Her Own Imprint at Viking

Pam Dorman had been an editor at Penguin Viking for 19 years when she announced in 2006 that she was leaving to become the editorial director of Voice, an imprint of Hyperion dedicated mainly to women’s fiction. Today she announced that she is returning to Viking to start her own eponynous imprint.

Ms. Dorman, who is credited with launching the careers of bestselling authors like Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones’s Diary), Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees), and Kim Edwards (The Memory Keeper’s Daughter), is the third senior Hyperion staffer to leave since the start of 2008. Editor-in-chief Will Schwalbe announced his departure in January, and president Bob Miller announced his four months later.
