Overview

I'm here to help. As a working writer myself I know the importance of a critical friend to look over the work I've done.

Someone to reassure me when it's going right, but who'll be able to point out where the manuscript might be improved.

So whether it's issues with story, characters, with dialogue and punctuation, with the flow of the story, or simply a second opinion that's needed, I'm on call.
