I’m an author’s secret weapon in the elusive and exclusive world of traditional publishing. I’ll help you write a story (not just information!) and show you exactly what publishers and agents want from memoir and nonfiction in your specific sub-category, topic or theme. I specialise in narrative nonfiction and story coaching, platform-building and submission strategies,  media, digital marketing, PR, launch publicity, digital business, author brand, long-term career strategies to increase book sales and an insider’s view of the traditional publishing business model (and how it’s constantly evolving) across the world.
