Published Work

Writing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Even at the age of siz, I was making up stories and writing sequels to my favourite movies. Content creation has been a big part of my life for a while now and I’ve worked with a number of different businesses, including some big name brands such as Indeed, Jaguar and Hootsuite.

IN PROGRESS

My current project is a Crime Thriller:

Stacey James is a new worldwide sensation.  Her Formula 1 career has taken a tremendous leap in the right direction and suddenly, all eyes are on her.  But there’s someone out there that’s not too happy about her new-found fame.  Can they be stopped before it’s too late?

The first draft was completed as part of NaNoWriMo 2015.

Critical analysis took place at the 2016 Winchester Writer’s Festival.

Beta readers reviewed the full manuscript in 2019.

Manuscript is now complete and looking for representation.

 Editing Work:

I’ve been thrilled to work with a number of amazing authors over the years, helping them hone and shape their writing skills and produce some incredible books. Some of my previous authors have even gone on to secure publishing contracts.

A few of the amazing writers I’ve worked with over the years:

Content Strategies

I produced a full content strategy for Red17, a print and signage company,  on a monthly basis between 2016 and 2018.

I produced between 8 and 12 blogs per month for Cells4Life, a stem cell research company in Dubai, between 2016 and 2018.

Film reviewer: GoGuide Magazine

I wrote for GoGuide Magazine for two years (2011-2013), covering the majority of their film corner. This ranged from simple reviews and critics to more in-depth and specialist articles analysing the film industry as it stands and some of the greatest directors currently populating the big screens.

Although I’m sad to say that the magazine is no longer published, their previous editions are still available here.

Novel: The Embrace of Silence

published by Any Subject Books 2012-2015 (this is no longer available)

Meet Jocelyn. A unique girl, fluent in sign language and deaf to the world. She embraces life and enjoys every second.  She has a loving, caring family and dotes upon her little sister Helen.

A normal day at school will change her life when she meets Josh. A troubled youth, isolated by his own family finds comfort in Jocelyn’s friendship.

Whisked into a world of romance, they live for each other’s company but tragedy will test them and their faith in each other.  It’s time to decide if this is true love or not.

Praise for The Embrace of Silence

JBronder – 5 star

Jocelyn is a typical teenager with a couple exceptions. Her mother died a while ago and she has had to step up and be a parental figure for her younger sister, Helen, and she is deaf. While at school one day, new kid Joshua comes into class. She is instantly drawn to him with his stuttering sign language and his sadness. Jocelyn steps up and does things that help Joshua come out of his shell and start loving life, then he is gone without any explanation. Feeling abandoned, Jocelyn goes on with her life until Joshua unexpectedly returns and ignores her. Then Helen is really sick and Jocelyn doesn’t know what to do, how she can help, or even how she can handle all the pressure.

 I really liked this story. When I learned about Joshua my heart broke. This poor kid was just abandoned with no one being able to take the time to work with him or just simply show that they care. Jocelyn is a strong character and I really liked her, she could be a great role model. She has to go through some grief but she is so strong that she just keeps going.

This is a great young adult romance with a wonderful ending. This is one book that you don’t want to miss.

Article: The Craftsman

In 2012, my very first finished article was published by the REME magazine the Craftsman in their June 2012 edition. This is an army magazine available to those in the regiment by worldwide subscription. The magazine ships overseas to all corners of the world and featured my article One Military Brat which detailed life in one of the very few military boarding schools still in the UK.

There are no electronic versions of each magazine but current copies can bought from here.

A Race for Time: The Sun Boat

self-published for family friends

Megan and Danny are two regular orphaned teens that get thrown into a mysterious world of magic and human transformations.  After discovering where they really come, the magical Whandai school becomes their true home where they make friends and finally feel like they belong. But when the balance is threatened by greed, they embark upon an unforgettable journey to save the world, testing their loyalty to one another.

This book was available for a limited time on Amazon as a gift for family and friends.  It is still available from other sellers.

Praise for The Sun Boat

Sue – 5 Star

I bought this book for my son and he loves it, now his sister is waiting for it but I don’t think he is going to put it down so may need to get her one as well!

Rosie – 5 star

This is a great read and should be on every 12 to 14 year old’s Christmas list. In fact evryones list!!

The Author was writing this book in her early teens and I wouldn’t be a bit surprised that there must be more to follow. The way the story ends just makes you want to read about what happens next?

Harry Potter fans will love it!!

  • I’ve finally managed to carve out some time in my daily routine to catch up with my reading! —
I usually go to two book clubs a month but am seriously behind with both. My current read is Things in Jars by Jess Kidd, have you read it?

I’ve also started Beth O’Leary’s The Flatshare which I’ve heard good things about...

Are you reading anything good at the moment?

PHOTO: The famous NYPL 😍 a must-visit NYC destination for book lovers! It was such a surreal experience. Tourists are welcome to explore the building but are only permitted inside a small cordoned-off area inside the study rooms so visitors aren’t disturbed. —

  • What will the future bring?
—
Technically all future plans are on hold. I’m sure you’re in the same boat. It’s hard to factor in what might happen in a month or two months’ time so we’ve hit pause for the time being.
—
But that doesn’t mean we’re aren’t still planning for the future. We’ve got adventures lined up and big dreams, it’s just a case of waiting for when we can unpause.
—
For the moment, I’ll make do with remembering and planning and looking to the future and feeling hopeful ❤️

  • How are you feeling today?
—
While we’re all standing strong together 💪 it’s okay to also have a wobble. To feel overwhelmed and helpless. But it’s important to look to the future.
—
It’s so nice to see the weather perking up a bit (even if we can’t quite enjoy it as we would like 🙄). Hopefully this is all over in time for our unpredictable summer season so we can enjoy a drink or two down the local. I did, however, get our garden furniture out 🙌 so I feel like that is a definite step in the right direction.

  • That’s it, the UK is officially in lockdown...
—
And I think a lot of us are going to be feeling pretty blue today.
—
But life goes on, we adapt, we work together and we lift each other up.
—
Normality will resume eventually, so for the moment it’s a case of living in the moment and taking each day as it comes.
—
Tell me where you are and what lockdown looks like there 👇
  • Now the restaurants are closed and the supermarkets are practically empty, my breakfast is limited to knock-off cookie crisps and toast. Here’s to dreaming of fat American pancakes from Ellen’s Stardust Diner 🤤😍😂
—
Anyone else getting worryingly low on essentials like teabags 🙋‍♀️
—
I’ll probably lay be venturing out today to a) get some fresh air and b) find supplies. Wish me luck 🤞 —
PHOTO: Ellen’s Stardust Diner is a MUST-VISIT NYC destination. The servers are all Broadway stars waiting for their next show so you have endless love entertainment while you eat. And the food is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Top tip: Sunday AM is pretty quiet so you don’t have to queue as long. We waited for about 20 minutes but the queue can be up to 2 hours (in winter) 🙊
