I'm a writer and book lover, always have been. I've six published books, a track record as an editor, mentor and proofreader, and I'm available to support writers who want their work to be the best it can be. You can dip into my books on this page, and explore more in the rest of the site. 

I'm going to be teaching in Rothley in September! The WEA are running a Creative Writing Course at the library, and it's open for bookings through the Loughborough branch. Starts on Wednesday 28 September, 9.45-11.45am, for 7 weeks. Looking forward to it...I'll also be running another two terms of writing workshops for Writing East Midlands. 

The Society for Editors and Proofreaders has recently accepted me as a Professional Member. 

There's lots about readings and courses on the latest page - have a look. 

Vintage and Closer. Two books you can't put down. Available from Waterstone's, Amazon and good independent bookshops like Kibworth Bookshop. And now available as e-books. Published by Five Leaves

For  reviews of Closer in Books for Keeps and Chicklish:

"An uncomfortable but gripping story, beautifully told." Chicklish

 "Sensitive simplicity and authenticity" - Books for Keeps.

The books are usually labelled Young Adult novels, but they're read by adults too.
