I'm a writer and book lover, always have been. I've seven 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. My first poetry collection, This Dust, was published by Soundswrite Press in March 2017.
And I'll be facilitating a WEA course called Literature: Poetry Appreciation – 101 Sonnets and more, based on Don Paterson's sonnet anthology. 6 Mondays 10 -12 from 9/4/2018. C2339097 Gorse Covert, Maxwell Drive, Loughborough.
I'm hoping to run another WEA Rothley course in September, there's people queueing up! And there will be a six-week Writing Workshop series at the Secular Hall in Leicester, beginning in May. £120.
Two bits of news - Bloomsbury are publishing a new edition of Breaking the Rules, with a new cover and illustrations.

A new edition of Breaking the Rules is shortly being republished by Bloomsbury, with a new cover and illustrations. It's a story about social media for reluctant readers. A lonely girl in a new town finds a friend online.
This Dust is available from Soundswrite press for £6.50 including p&p. Also from Amazon.
'The poems are absolutely stunning - with an astonishing impact. They actually kept me awake half the night after my first reading - I'm having to plan the second one with care!'
'What struck me was an overpowering sense of grabbing hold of every single moment with the people I love and cherish and keeping a tight hold on it - it was a physical reaction, one of panic almost, like hearing a storm warning and needing to get my house in order ready for it.' Anne Holloway.
