My debut novel Paris Mon Amour was published in June 2016 and my home territory as reader and writer is the crossover zone between literary and commercial fiction.  I also host the Literary Sofa blog and am currently developing a workshop on Perseverance and Motivation for Writers with author and psychologist Voula Grand.

This will be my third time mentoring – read about why I wanted to be part of the WoMentoring Project. It’s been a rewarding and enjoyable experience helping talented writers to be confident that the work they are sending out is their very best.


Literary/commercial crossover


I’m offering a critique of the first 10,000 words of a completed novel (and if you really pull me in, the full manuscript). The later drafts in the run-up to submission are where I can be most helpful.  Happy to meet in person (London) and to offer phone/Skype follow-up on request.
