My passion is to help writers realise their dream of publication, whether it is via self-publishing or main-stream publishing. Whether you've finished your novel or still in the midst of the process of writing, I am here to provide editing, constructive comments and reviews.

I have a degree in Creative Writing, I've published articles and written short stories and edited many novels that have gone on to be published, and I've held numerous Creative Writing Workshops. My extensive knowledge of creative writing plus your brilliant story ideas is sure to be an explosive combination!
