Thank you for checking out my blog of frank entries as I pursue a career in Writing.

In addition to that if you’re looking for a slice of social commentary on crucial subjects, like the importance of inclusive books, Money, Author care and Rights, ridiculous plotting  strategies, failing but not really, the pain and suffering it takes to spill your guts onto a laptop then go and drink BAD coffee, and the most critical of all the BEST biscuit to get you through a tough writing session. 

Then you’ve come to the right place…

You’ll also find Writing competitions, Book reviews and valuable industry interviews 🙂

You’re welcome to titter on Twitter or whatever else there is, about my obvious happiness or demise…With a SHARE or a doodle or whatever takes your fancy.

  1. Loving your blog!I’m wanting to become a children’s writer myself. I’ve started small. But I’ve started! My first little books nearly written up but I’m a little nervous about sensing it in to a publisher and have no idea where to start! I don’t even know if I need to send any illustrations off at first.. as I haven’t got any! Any tips or advice would be HUGELY appreciated by you! Xxxx

    • Hello Forgetmenot29,

      Thank you for your comment, its lovely to hear from you AND It’s absolutely fab that you’ve got the children’s writing bug, and want to get started.
      In answer to some of your questions my suggestions are- especially if you’re wanting to take this further to immerse yourself into the world, think about joining SCWBI which is a supportive organisation, devoted to helping childrens writers and illustrators flourish.
      Er…What else? Oh yes, only if you’re an illustrator should you send your work in to agents/pub if not you’ll be suggested not to do so. Think about making a name for yourself as a writer first -then maybe when there’s a foot in the door you can suggest other possibilities.
      There’s no reason why you can’t hone you’re illustrator craft down and show off your skills on social media sites such as instagram.
      Good luck!
      Feel free to e-mail me with any further queries you may have.

      Can’t wait to hear how you get on!

      Take care
