I'm a writer and book lover, always have been. I have 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. 

The Writing School Writing Workshop is underway, and we'll be publishing our first pamphlet this term. The launch will be on Friday, 30th November at the Secular Hall, details to follow.

January's workshop is open for booking. Click here for details and booking. 

I'm running another WEA Rothley course in January, on Wednesday mornings. Details and bookings will be available early in December. 

Bloomsbury are publishing a new edition of Breaking the Rules, with a new cover and illustrations. Exciting!

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

A new edition of Breaking the Rules is  being republished by Bloomsbury in 2019, 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.

There's a review of This Dust here:

'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.
