Overview

Hello fellow writers!

As an internationally bestselling author, I'm passionate about writing and YOU.

I'm on your side, and want to help your book stand the best chance of being a huge success.

I work with 3 of the big 5 publishing houses, and would love to help you create a book that audiences love.

Alongside your developmental edit, I will also help you find your target audience, create a great title, tagline and (of course) make sure your manuscript delivers on reader expectations.

I will also talk you through the best routes into the publishing industry - including advice on self publishing.

My aim is to offer genuine value, so your book has the best possible chance of being published and reaching a large audience. You will come away with skills that will help you create bestselling books. And these skills will last a lifetime.

As a fellow author (and former ghostwriter), I know the difficulties and pain we writers go through during the writing and feedback process. I understand the uncertainty and insecurity and am here to lift you up and show you how to be successful.

So share your manuscript with me - I can't wait to read it.

Please note: due to writing commitments, I take on less than one project a month. I try to focus on writers I feel I can offer the most help to and whose manuscripts are most likely to be profitable. However, I will reply to everyone who gets in touch.

I really enjoyed working with Suzy, her insight and recommendations were spot on! This was truly a collaborative effort. She went above and beyond just providing developmental edits. I felt secure and trusted her during this process based on her experience in this area. I will definitely hire her again. Thank you so much Suzy for your insight.
