Hi. I’m a published novelist and scriptwriter, Royal Literary Fund Fellow and Advisory Fellow, and a writing workshop lead. I also have over 2o years’ experience working on business text destined for blue-chip multinationals, and am the West Midlands’ representative for the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. Get in touch to discuss a project, or tweet me.
