"The pen was a gift from her grandfather and with it he had attached a promise:
that one day she would use the pen to write her own novel.
He had known since the day she was born that literature was her destiny."

The Lost Art of Letter Writing

Along with writing, teaching is one of my greatest passions - what
could be better, after all, than chatting about books for hours with
those who love literature as much as you do?! Answer: drinking tea
and eating cake while you're doing it. 

There's nothing quite like teaching in person, so I do that as often
as I'm able. I recently founded the Cambridge Creative Writing
Company with friend and fellow author, Emily Winslow. We hold
small, intimate classes in the beautiful colleges of Cambridge
University. Our May writing retreat will be held at Madingley Hall
on 11th-12th May. Visit our website for dates and availability. 

This year, after many requests & finally managing to stop scribbling novels for
long enough to get my act together, I'm teaching online Zoom classes again!
See below for details. 

Occasionally, I mentor writers who are working on a manuscript for
publication. Due to time constraints, I can only take on 1 or 2 students
per year. If you'd like to work with me, please submit your first three chapters
along with a brief synopsis of the novel.
