Article on Ghost Writing for Mslexia in the September issue.
Girl in The Mirror, a work of autofiction, will be published in Spring 2022
A prolific ghost writer, I've written over twenty books for clients in the last four years. Life writing became my bag after winning the Wasafiri Life Writing Prize that led to a bursary with The Literary Consultancy to develop the novel, Girl in the Mirror, with the mentorship of Kerry Hudson. I have always written stories, long and short, for adults and children. One children's story is published in the Mumsnet Book of Bedtime Stories, by Walker books. I have performed my short stories at Birkbeck, where I took an MA in creative writing, with Michael Rosen and Julia Bell as my tutors, and in Waterstones, Piccadilly, with The Word Factory. I was the Writer in Residence at Talliston House where I ran workshops and The Writer's Circle, attended Garsdale for a Writer's Retreat, TLC workshops and SCBWI conferences and events, writing for their online Words and Pictures magazine. I've written three other novels, two YA and one MG, and have written for Mslexia, national websites, local press, blogs and screenplays. I used to be a teacher, in primary and forest school, and when I'm not writing, I have adventures with the women's outdoor pursuit group - She Who Dares. I wrote a book about them too.
