Why should you work with me?

Let's talk about mistakes...!

When I started writing over 10 years ago I made SO many mistakes and some of them were real corkers! I spent literally thousands on publishing - which I now know to be vanity publishing - and received a big fat nothing in terms of the promised marketing support. 

I had no control over my work and yet I was getting nowhere fast and paying far too much in royalties. I spent hours researching people who could 'help' me before, (after wasting yet more money) realising that there was very little, practical or 'jargon-free' help available to a new and naive writer like myself.

 I did not know about editing, publishing, cover design, illustration, marketing, royalties...heck, I knew nothing!

I have now published 10 books and several whirling around in my head! I have 20 years teaching experience and have taught literacy and creative writing to many, many students. I have written texts and educational material for organisations and corporations as far afield as China and I have learnt ALOT!

It is my mission to help as many new and budding writers as I can; to nurture their love of writing, to help them hone their craft, to enable them to experience the pure joy of holding their first published book in their hands without emptying their financial and emotional reserves...in short, I want to help YOU!

My mission is to be the person I needed when I started out!

I will help you to remain motivated, to gain inspiration from myself and fellow writers, to gain feedback for your work and to ask questions in REAL time and gain answers from a REAL person. So what are you waiting for?

Let me help you and let's get your book started (and published!)...I can't wait to share your writing journey with you!
