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!

TOP STORIES


A little vlog about my writing journey - the chance remark that inspired me to write my very first book and how I then became motivated to write more and more! I have lots more stories in my head, so long may it continue...!

WORRIED SICK

My new eBook is now live on Amazon!

This one is a bit different, in that it is autobiographical as opposed to fiction - although still funny...I hope!

Living with a phobia and the related anxiety it brings can certainly be a challenge, but I like to think that finding humour in the most difficult times can really help you through. 

In this book, I tell some of the utterly bonkers stories that make me who I am and how, for me, laughter really is the best medicine.

There are lots of ways to get in touch and I absolutely love hearing from you all.

Any hilarious stories for writing inspiration are always welcome!
