I have published five books in wellbeing and parenting with major publishers and my work has been translated into 17 languages. I have titles published by Penguin Random House (2015), Watkins Publishing (2015, 2016, & 2017) and Little, Brown (2017). Alongside my own writing and raising my children, I have worked as a freelance editor and manuscript assessor (fiction and non-fiction) for ten years including for Watkins Publishing. I have an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University (distinction). I have taught writing skills at Oxford University and Creative Writing for Wellbeing for mental health charity Mind.
How I work:
It's my passion to help you communicate as strongly as you can. I can help you recognise the strengths and weaknesses in your work and guide you to fix problems. Whether you are self-publishing or going down the traditional publishing route, I can help you shape up your manuscript so that you tell your story with authenticity and power.
I offer manuscript assessments, development editing and copyediting. I also enjoy working with authors over a longer time frame and can offer a mentoring package. I am also available as a ghostwriter.
My fees are fair and affordable, and I can offer a fast turnaround if time is short.
Fiction - I have a particular interest in children's and literary.
Non-fiction - I specialise in wellbeing and memoir.
- MA Creative Writing Bath Spa (distinction)
- BA English Literature (First class)
- CELTA (Teaching English Language)
I tutor academic writing skills to English Literature students at Oxford University.
