Services

I currently work with GrubStreet, the nation’s leading independent creative writing center, as a private consultant. I love character-driven narratives, fiction with an emphasis on voice,and experimental and dark fiction. Interests include literary criticism; class, feminist, and identity issues; pop culture (especially music); personal essays; and international and regional narratives. I have a keen eye for both sentence-level detail and big-picture editing, and work on projects ranging from flash to book-length. Hailing from Great Britain, I’m particularly adept at authenticating settings, characters, and stories associated with the UK.

Having worked on the editorial board of several literary magazines, I offer guidance in submitting fiction to magazines and journals, and as GrubStreet’s Marketing and Community Engagement Manager, I also offer book promotion services, and social media coaching for authors.

I am a creative writer, student of literature, reviewer, and blogger. A native of Yorkshire, England, I’m now loving the city life in Boston. This blog is devoted to writing about writing, and about creativity in general, especially music, crafting, and DIY fashion. I am always looking for new writing opportunities — reviews, copy editing, promotional material, columns, and anything else you might need help with, so get in touch! Currently, I am finishing up a novel about Jeremy Lagoire, a 27-year-old virgin from New Orleans who lives with his phony spiritualist mother, as well as working on short stories, flash fiction, and the occasional poetry. My creative work has appeared in Poetry and Audience and The Medulla Review. My reviews have featured in The Manhattan Mercury, No-TiTLE magazine, and Leeds Music Scene. I have also written articles for The Sheffield Star.
