I teach a Guardian masterclass in memoir, have worked in magazines for more than ten years and am a trained journalist.
In the space of five years I have sold two memoirs off the back of book proposals to two different imprints at Penguin Random House in both the UK and the United States: Graduates in Wonderland (Avery, 2014) and Sorry I’m Late, I Didn’t Want to Come (Doubleday, May 2019), without having any previous contacts in the publishing industry. Both books were sold at auction.
Want me to help you shape your book proposal or manuscript? I also work as a writing coach, editor and can offer sessions in book publicity. I also work as a ghostwriter.
