I'm a fiction writer (many bestselling ghostwritten titles published) and a professional critiquer, teaching writers how to get the best out of the novels they write. I blog about writing life and everyday writing questions, presenting them as quirky, practical tutorials to solve the problems all writers face, whether novice or experienced. My most recent book is Nail Your Novel, a complete method


Background Information

Background - originally a journalist, I ventured into fiction by writing novelisations of  TV programmes and then got my first ghostwriting contract. I did several years on the novel-writing course at Morley College, under the incredibly wise tutelage of Juri Gabriel.

While honing my craft there I discovered I also had a talent for critiquing, and for many years have freelanced with a leading critiquing agency in London. After widespread success ghostwriting for bestselling household names, I am now presenting my own fiction to the market, and am represented by Jane conway-Gordon in London.

Who inspires me? Early influences were Dr Who, for all the ways it asked 'what if' about the ordinary world. Ditto, the Moon landings. When I was growing up I could not live without the work ofTanith Lee and Kate Bush, for their ethereal oddness, and Toyah Willcox, for challenging accepted norms in hair colour. Writers who I would take to a desert island would be Graham Greene, Jan Mark, Ian Fleming, Alisdair Gray, Iain Banks, Daphne Du Maurier, Peter Carey, Gavin Maxwell, Peter Shaffer, Michel Tournier... In half an hour I will have thought of a hundred more.

Accomplishments

My ghostwritten titles make the bestseller lists. But confidentiality means I can't tell you who I've pretended to be...

Additional Information

My most recent book is non-cficiton - Nail Your Novel: why writers abandon books and how you can draft, fix and finish with confidence. I wrote it because so many people start a novel and then abandon it because they don't know how to organise the work or tackle the inevitable problems. Even when you feel like giving up and throwing the manuscript in a drawer, this little book will light the way to continue. And at around 100 pages, it's about half the length of other writing books - for effective writing advice without the waffle! And at the moment the PDF is available on my website as a FREE download!
