|I'm currently writing...||
I’ve recently begun outlining my third novel: literary/contemporary women’s fiction with slivers of magic.
It’s set in Wales, as are all my stories. It concerns two sisters & an old secret.
I have dabbled here & there
|Are you pursuing publication?|
|What I want in an awesome Critique Partner||
Encouragement & support as as I am new to critiquing
|The type of structure you like|
|How often can you give & receive feedback?|
|What is your writing experience?||
I have been writing for years. Have experience as a journalist & a journaler. Dislike the term ‘blog’ although I write a regular one. My first novel was self-published which has proved a double-edged sword. I am seeking representation for my second, recently completed book. I write every day & have done so for years. I am commited to & serious about my work.
|My writing influences are...||
‘Influence’ is I feel an emotive term. I admire many writers & have been told I write like Alice Hoffman. I’m very private & although I do occasionally attend writing workshops, I don’t really ‘do’ events. I am an admirer of Virginia Woolf, AS Byatt, Margaret Atwood, Sue Gee, Joanne Harris, Maggie O’Farrell & Suzanne Power, to name a few.
|Books I enjoy reading||
At present I’m reading, ‘Of Blessed Memory’ by Erica Jong & enjoying it immensely. I recently read, ‘Mrs Woolf & the Servants’ by Alison Light.

|More About Me||
I write because I can’t take decent photographs, juggle or play the piano.
I tell everyone I’m a survivor of arrested development. Largely because its true.
Essentially, I write.
