About me

I’ve self-published 7 books of my own – a historical novel and several children’s stories – and found the first two or three a very steep learning curve! I’d like to save you some of that grief.

I’m also retired from a major UK telecommunications firm, where I’ve spent the last 20 years or so coaching people how to overcome various technical hurdles. That was the part of the job that I liked the best, and was very good at; I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping people to master challenges. And I have a great deal of patience!

Putting those two things together – my technical knowledge, and ability to coach people – means that I can do what I love, and help people along the way; win-win! I will work with you to work out exactly what combination of my services you need and can afford, so that your book becomes a reality as quickly and painlessly as possible.

There are some areas where I’m not qualified to do the work – namely, copy or content editing, or cover design. I have a carefully selected group of experts I can call on as required.
