I am currently writing my third novel and am chair of North London Writers, and so have lots of experience reading and mentoring fiction. My first novel was written while doing an MA in Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam where I was taught by Jane Rogers and Archie Markham. Jane continued to be my mentor through my second novel. I tend to write about family set-ups gone awry, with emphasis on psychological drama. I’m particularly drawn to contemporary, gritty fiction.
Quality commercial fiction
I’d like to offer three hours of reading, and up to an hour of email or phone correspondence. I’d most like to help someone who is quite far along with their novel and wants advice on opening chapters, or how to prepare to send their work to an agent.
