27.5. Someone has hacked into my email address, info@maxinelinnell.com, and used it to send spam to a lot of people. I'm  aware of it now, and it's been blocked, but my apologies go to anyone who's received something in their inbox. 

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. You can dip into my books on this page, and explore more in the rest of the site. My first poetry collection, This Dust, was published by Soundswrite Press in March. See here for dates of readings

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.

This Dust is available from http://www.soundswritepress.co.uk 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 onewith care!"
