SERVICES THAT WORK FOR YOU

When you're writing a book, it’s easy to steer off track without a little one-on-one guidance from a professional. I have been a development editor since 2014, and have helped authors address a number of complex story issues. Take a look at my book coaching services and choose the right one for you.

STORY DEVELOPMENT

Using specific exercises, story development helps you to take an idea and develop it into a plan — or fix a broken manuscript! Beginning with the key elements of narrative structure: premise; character arc; rising action; climax; and resolution, I'll help you structure your story so that it has momentum and meaning.

DEVELOPMENT EDIT

Whether you have just completed your rough draft or are looking for a critique of a subsequent draft, the development edit will help you take your book to the next level.

ABOUT ME

You know how most writers struggle to finish a novel? I specialise in coaching authors from story planning to THE END.

I can work with you one-to-one over the course of 4 - 6 weeks, guaranteeing you thorough, compassionate feedback on your story's development and/or manuscript.

With years of experience in theatre, broadcast media, and editing, I have a visceral understanding of story. There's nothing I love more than identifying the most engaging elements of story and working with a writer on what’s not.


I have an MA (Distinction) in Professional Writing, and my debut novel, Body of Water, was one of ten books long-listed for the Polari First Book Prize.


The 2021 BookLife Prize rated my latest book, Behind the Seams, 10 out of 10 in all four categories.

If you’re not sure book coaching is for you, I’d be happy to talk to you about it. Get in touch.
