My first novel “The Many Colours of Us” was published by HQ in April 2017, I’m represented by Tanera Simons at Darley Anderson and am currently editing my second novel. I have learned to juggle my writing with a full-time job. I also have an auto-immune condition and have learned, over the years, how to manage writing, work and my energy levels and would particularly like to work with women who find themselves in a similar position.

I have been lucky enough to have picked up all kinds of advice over the years on editing my own work and getting ready to submit to agents and I can’t wait to start passing some of these tips on to you!


Contemporary fiction.


I’m offering two hours of mentoring via Skype, telephone or email (one hour in person if you live within one hour’s car travel of Leeds), with one hour’s follow up a month or two later.
