Since my first book was published in 2007, I’ve worked hard to learn everything I can about the craft and share those skills with others. My free writing workshops at the Open Book Festival have always been popular with aspiring authors and have allowed me to feed my passion for helping others reach their full potential.
I love working with fellow writers, especially young creatives bursting with imagination and ideas. So if you’re new to the world of publishing and need some guidance, a seasoned writer looking for a freelance editor or a publisher in need of a sensitivity reader, I’m here to help.
I offer the following bespoke services on a freelance basis:
- Manuscript assessment and sensitivity reading
- Commissioned work
- Coaching and mentoring
- Writing workshops
- Motivational speaking
My rates are based on the latest SAFREA recommendations and industry best practice.
(Important: I do not charge for book reviews on my personal blog. Getting the word out about newly published work is critical for authors, especially local writers competing against international titles, so it’s my absolute pleasure to spread the love.)
Please drop me a mail if you’d like to work with me on your novel or short story, or if you’d like me to come to your school to run a workshop or speak to your class.
