How can I help you?

How can I help you?


Since having a bit of modest success with my books and plays I’ve moved into a new phase of my writing career.  I’ve been able to share the skills I’ve gathered so far with other writers, and it’s a part of the process that I’m really loving.

Along with my husband Andrew Thorn, I’ve been running workshops at the Guildhall in Gloucester covering epublishing, as well as novel and play writing.  We’ve had really good feedback from these one-day courses and have more booked throughout this term.

Epublishing feedback: ‘It was a very well-balanced day, covering both the technical and marketing sides. The fact that you have to get to grips with both aspects is probably the most important thing to learn about ePublishing!’
For info on these courses see the 'workshops' section on this website

But since those courses started I’ve also been mentoring a few first time novelists and that’s been a real pleasure.  Feedback: ‘Thanks so much for the session yesterday – really fired me up again on the book.’

I was also asked to be a judge on the Gloucestershire Theatre Association’s playwriting competition, and have since given feedback to several playwrights as a part of that process.  Feedback: ‘All of your suggestions are good ones, and ones I’ll need to think about and work on.  I’m really grateful for all the time and effort you have put into this.’

I'll be running several FREE workshops at the Cheltenham 'Words on the Side' fringe festival including a workshop for kids aged 7-11.

So if I can help you in any way, workshops or mentoring sessions, just let me know.
