Consultancy and Mentoring

In addition to my writing, ghosting and editing, I also work in a number of other capacities:


I work with several leading literary agencies and publishers in a consulting capacity, working with agents and authors on manuscripts and book proposals before submission and/or acquisition.

I have also worked for a number of years for the Literary Consultancy, reporting on a variety of both fiction and non-fiction manuscripts but predominantly crime fiction and thrillers. For more details of their services, please click here.

I also work privately with unpublished authors in an editorial or advisory capacity. This takes a number of forms, depending on what the writer is looking for, but usually I either work with them on the full manuscript or on a 'submissions package' of the opening chapters, synopsis and covering letter. 

If this is something of interest to you, please email me at for availability and fees.


I work as a mentor with new writers for a number of organisations. These include

The Literary Consultancy

Adventures in Fiction

The Professional Writing Academy

Falmouth University MA in Professional Writing.


My first job in publishing was as a copywriter, writing the blurbs on the back of books. I continue to work in this area, with my most recent client being the Ministry of Sound.
