DESTIN, FL, August 19, 2016 – In order to focus fully on her writing, Waterhouse Press Managing Editor and New York Times Bestselling author, Helen Hardt, has stepped down from her role as Managing Editor for Waterhouse Press. In her place, Scott Saunders has come on board the team as Managing Editor and Jeanne De Vita as Developmental Editor.
Of her transition, Hardt said, “Stepping down from editing at WHP is bittersweet for me. I’ve enjoyed my time on this end, but I want to give more time to my writing career, and I know Jeanne and Scott will be great in their new roles.”
Hardt’s highly acclaimed Steel Brothers Saga books have recently made appearances on the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller lists. The next book in the saga, Possession, will release on September 27th. Information about her books can be found at www.helenhardt.com.

I’ll have the chance to work with Waterhouse’s highly acclaimed, award-winning authors, and in an environment that is truly innovative and dynamic.” Saunders joins Waterhouse Press with over two decades of experience in the industry.
