As a working writer, I'm always excited to host literary events, tell stories and talk about books. I've also been working in the publishing industry for a decade and a half, and have variously worked as as a copywriter, editor, proofreader, reviewer and ghostwriter. Whatever the project, if you're working with words, I can help. 

Event Chairing

I'm an experienced and engaging event chair who knows how to get the best out of authors.

I've hosted events ranging from novel launches and literary fiction events to those on politics, feminism, non-fiction and graphic novels. 

Live Storytelling

From narrative non-fiction events to literary readings and spoken word performances, I have experience performing in several countries and to a wide range of audiences. 

Whether it's a spoken word night in a tiny bar or the Edinburgh International Book Festival, I'll bring entertainment and professionalism.

Podcasting

I've been a guest on a range of shows and from later this year will be the co-host of a brand new literature podcast.

I've a wide range of artistic interests, from literary fiction to trash 80s movies, and will expound for hours on the Alien series (and its failings) if you'll let me. 

Editing

As Senior Editor at a publishing company, I can work with texts at any stage—from first draft to publishing.

Whether you need a developmental, line or copy edit, or simply a sounding board to bounce ideas off, I can help. 

Ghostwriting

Have a story to tell but can't quite find the words? 

I ghostwrite books, columns and other content for a number of clients, and pride myself on capturing each writer's voice and tone perfectly. 

Story Development

Whether you're working on a script, a novel or a non-fiction book, I can help you ensure that your story is told properly. 

I've worked with feature films, YA novels, kids' books and adult fiction, so whatever your project, let's make it the best it can be.
