The Deadline Desk


Do you need a kick-start as a writer?

Or have you already set yourself a writing goal but have got bogged down?

Or have you finished your manuscript and need a second opinion?

I offer a suite of  services to help you meet your literary deadline, whether imposed or self-created.

  1. a bespoke weekly mentoring programme with tutorial sessions over three months for beginners or early writers.
  2. a guided writing/reviewing course for those in the middle of a project.
  3. a reader’s report on a finished piece of work, with a once-off appraisal and/or editing service for a fixed fee.

I’m an award-winning novelist and short fiction writer, and a professional editor of long-standing. I’ve taught creative writing at third level in the US and Ireland for 20 years.

Some testimonials from former students:

I really appreciated the tight structure of  your classes and your detailed analysis of my work.

I felt like you really understood my style and respected and encouraged my growth by always challenging me to dig a little deeper.

When I started your workshop I could hardly muster up a page of fiction. . . now I’m six chapters into a novel. 

I almost gave up writing.  Thanks for helping me to keep going.
