I'm English but have lived in France for almost ten years. I'm a lover of brocante hunting, local food, walks, and the sea. And, naturally, I'm a bookworm and adore book fairs and browsing the bouquinistes stalls along the banks of the River Seine for used and antiquarian books...
As a ghostwriter, I take great care in understanding and developing the voice of the author to allow their own words and natural delivery to shine through. I'm both methodical and creative, offering a professional service with an approachable and open style to the working relationship, the gathering of the base content material and the end manuscript.
With memoirs, I'm mindful that sensitivity is required, and the reasons for writing a memoir are many and varied. Understanding the author's desired outcomes and choosing the best writing style to achieve their objectives is an integral part of the process, and I take time to ensure that it is clearly established.
One of the most important traits of a ghostwriter is discretion. So, naming names is a no-no!

My approach to writing is not wholly conventional, I'm as much about the author and the process of writing around our everyday lives - without losing friends and family along the way - as I am about the craft of writing. I work with the writer's specific circumstances to help them create the best route to the successful completion of their manuscript wherever they may be in the process.
I am supportive, accessible and innovative in unblocking issues within the best way to tell the story, plot, character development, story arc and pacing. There's nothing more satisfying for me than seeing the clouds part for a writer who has been stuck in seeing how their idea can be realised and watching them soar ahead with their project. I never forget who I am supporting in bringing their story to life.
