HI, I'M STUART.

With 26 years of experience in theatre, broadcast media, and coaching, I've developed a profound understanding of storytelling and its powerful structures. My journey began with a childhood love for comic books, TV, and diverse literature, which laid the foundation for my lifelong dedication to the art of storytelling.

Holding an MA in Professional Writing, I've committed to mastering the craft, both academically and personally. My writing achievements, such as my debut novel "Body of Water" being long-listed for the Polari First Book Prize and "Behind the Seams" reaching the semifinals of the 2021 BookLife Fiction Prize Contest, demonstrate my ability to create compelling narratives. The airing of my first TV show on the UK's Channel 4 marks another milestone in my diverse storytelling career.

My eclectic background sparked my passion for coaching. Known for feedback that resonates and enlightens, I have become the go-to person for manuscript reviews. As an Author Accelerator Certified Book Coach, I combine personal experience, professional expertise, and genuine passion to guide aspiring writers. My coaching is thorough and compassionate, focused on helping you create vibrant and meaningful narratives.

Writing a novel can be fulfilling and less daunting with the right support. My goal is to help writers infuse their stories with rich characters, dynamic momentum, and significant depth. Let's embark on this journey together; with a coach who understands the heart and soul of storytelling, your writing adventure will be extraordinary.
