Life as a freelancer requires Esther to mix it up as a journalist, publicist and creative writer but she has learned to love the variety. Twenty years experience has helped hone an instinctive understanding of what makes a book tick and what a manuscript is crying out for. As a journalist, Esther is published in The Guardian, The Mirror, The Sun, HuffPo, Standard Issue and many more. Esther writes fiction and also ghost writes for clients. Emma Freud said her writing was “Brave, honest, real… so much love for you”. Esther is particularly good at helping pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in a story or voice, where to go next and what to do and where the story’s ‘home’ might be. She is also full of ideas if you are writing but want to diversify careers wise. Esther also has a Masters degree in Creative and Critical Writing and is also co-founder of Bookollective www.bookollective.com which is a PR, design and social media agency for authors.
