AN AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR ON YOUR SIDE
"It takes a lot of bad writing to get a little good writing." ~ Truman Capote
Are you stuck in a literary dark alleyway? Defeated by the dreaded writer's block? Or wrestling with a cliched character,
bleeding clumsy dialogue and crushed by notes, drafts, appendices and complicated timelines?
As an experienced, published, award-winning scribe (under Juliet Staveley and various pen names),
leader of writers' workshops, in-demand freelance copywriter and veteran Book Editor of both fiction and non-fiction,
it's my job to guide you into the light and apply bandages.
Trust me with your ideas, research and draft ~ whether book, film, TV or radio play ~ and I promise you the loan of my nimble typing fingers, methodical approach and boundless imagination. See testimonials from fellow writers.
As an ex-IP lawyer, I can also advise you upon - and seek approval and accreditation for - the use of images/clips/quotes/music.
I CAN HELP YOU TO WRITE/SHAPE:
FICTION: Whether it be a Mongolian drama, gothic horror, acerbic comedy about a guitarist or quirky romance set on Pluto,
I will take your words, craft them and make them drip with a beautiful intensity.
NON-FICTION: Who says real cannot be a best-seller? Not me - I've worked on medieval studies and memoirs in Afghanistan.
I will fact-check and enliven your autobiographical, historical, cultural, political or scientific work so it is a joy to read.
GHOSTWRITING: As an ex-journalist, I love to squeeze the best bits out of people. So put your feet up and have a cuppa while I ensure that your voice is loud and clear (or whispery and mysterious).
SCRIPTWRITING & TREATMENTS: Full feature films, short films, documentary narration, TV series, radio, audiobook scripts.
Whatever you need, I will be there every page, chapter, storyboard and step of the way.
And it will be a glorious and productive ride.
Now please tell me all about your baby... I promise not to bite...
