Welcome to the Smith & Baxter site. It has been a long time coming but delighted to be live.
So here is the back story of Smith & Baxter. I basically left Octopus Publishing in June 2013 to get a dog. I knew that I couldn’t manage looking after a dog while working at Octopus, with the amount of time away on book tours and author events just made it impossible. So after 12 years and lots of great experiences I decided to leave and set up on my own. Smith & Baxter was created in July 2013 but it wasn’t until October 2013 when Baxter actually arrived: a curly ball of fluff who was named after the dog in Anchorman and much to everyone’s confusion this was despite her being a girl.
Baxter is a mix of Cavalier Spaniel, Miniature Poodle and Bichon Frise and has the most incredible under-bite. She has a lot of input into the day to day business and attends most meetings, but her main responsibility is to charm my clients.
