I learned at a young age that writing was my friend and a real gift. It allowed me to have my say when I felt silenced, to shape the world so it looked more the way I thought it should (or at least to understand a little better why it looked as it did), and to communicate things that, actually, went way beyond words.

My first stories were written at primary school. Since then I’ve been a critic, a journalist and a poet, have written policy documents for businesses, used poetry to explore equations with engineers, and led creative writing groups in universities, schools, and in the community. I even spent years carrying out doctoral research on the relationship between creative and critical writing. It’s true to say writing has been at the heart of my life.

Now I share my passion by working with novelists, poets, researchers, academics, and other professionals who rely on words to communicate their vision, using creative techniques to enhance the power of their writing.
