After writing over 30 memoirs for others, my own, about my experience growing up as the sister of a brother with Autism and learning difficulties - The Sibling - is now out on submission.
Of 'Girl in The Box'
"There's a very charming and naive quality to Alice and the relationships she has are moving, funny and heartfelt. I thought that you evoked what it is like at that awkward, difficult age with ease (which is no mean feat). You write with confidence and eloquence and I think this feels commercially appealing."
Of The original screenplay 'Flow'
"I like it"
Frank Cottrell Boyce
Of 'Girl in the Mirror'
"An extremely authoritative writing voice, a writer who understands what they are doing with a beautiful eye for detail."

Born in the shadow of Old Trafford, I hold my Northern heritage close. I drifted South with formative years near Birmingham and bounced back for student life and work in Liverpool. I now live near London. Inspired by generations of family anecdotalists, I've been writing stories since I could hold a crayon. I've published nearly thirty memoirs as a ghost writer, but you won't see my name on them! I won the Wasafiri International Life Writing Prize in 2017 which led to mentorship on Chapter and Verse from The Literary Consultancy,to develop Girl in the Mirror
