Magic Beans - need help editing or preparing your children's novel for submission or e-book publication? I can help.

Applecore Books - the home of realistic, conemporary fiction.


How can I help you?


I have been writing novels for over ten years. When I started out I didnít know how to write a good story, any more than I knew how to write a bad one and you could say I wrote with my fingers crossed, hoping Iíd find the magic formula. But years of writing, courses, reading, feedback and rewriting have paid off. I am lucky to be teaching creative writing to adults and children, but I can now pass on the knowledge and understanding I have gained to you too. If you need help with your own writing, please contact me.


Whether you choose to publish your work via the traditional or the indie route, you need to present your work in the best possible way. I can help you if... 

  • You write for children or young adults
  • You want a professional critique 
  • You need one-2-one mentoring
  • Youíve finished your book and need a good beta reader
  • You are ready to publish but need the help of a copy-editor
