About Me

I am a writer and teacher of creative writing, with a Master’s Degree in Professional Writing, an Honours Degree in English and American Literature, and a PGCE in English and Drama. I’ve been published in both national and regional magazines and am a novelist and professional copywriter. I have a literary agent for my first novel but no book deal on the horizon just yet. That’s okay, it’s a long road and I’m enjoying the scenary.

I have twenty five years of teaching experience behind me, and head a creative writing course for Cornwall County Council, teach academic writing skills for Falmouth and Exeter University, and run several critique groups. I also provide one to one editorial and writing services, and freelance as a professional copywriter. I am co-founder of The Writing Retreat.

Sharing my love of writing with my fellow writers is one of the things that motivates and engages me, which is why I love teaching and mentoring, offering editorial support and running writing retreats. It’s a wonderful thing when your passion and your work can come together, so I really would be delighted to help you with your own writing journey if I can.

I’m easy enough to find, so do get in touch:
