Home: About Me


With a rich tapestry of experiences spanning 26 years in theatre, broadcast media, and coaching, I've cultivated a deep-rooted understanding of storytelling and its powerful narrative structures. My journey began with a childhood fascination for comic books, TV, and movies, blossoming into an avid exploration of diverse literature. This early love of stories wasn't just a pastime; it laid the foundation for my lifelong dedication to the art of storytelling.

My academic and professional pursuits, including an MA in Professional Writing, underscore my commitment to mastering the craft. This dedication is not just academic; it's personal. My own 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 from over 900 entries, reflect my understanding of what it takes to create compelling narratives that captivate audiences. The upcoming airing of my first TV show on the UK's Channel 4 marks another milestone in my diverse storytelling career.

It's this eclectic background that sparked my interest in coaching. Throughout my education and career, I've been the go-to person for manuscript reviews, known for feedback that resonates and enlightens. My personal journey as a writer, familiar with the hurdles and triumphs of the process, fuels my desire to support others. As an Author Accelerator Certified Book Coach, I bring a unique blend of personal experience, professional expertise, and genuine passion for storytelling to the table. My goal is to guide aspiring writers in crafting narratives that are not only vibrant and compelling but also deeply meaningful.

I believe that with the right support and guidance, writing a novel can be a fulfilling and less daunting journey. My focus is on helping writers infuse their stories with rich characters, dynamic momentum, and significant depth. Let's embark on this journey together; with a coach who understands not just the mechanics, but the heart and soul of storytelling, your writing adventure is bound to be an extraordinary one.
