I am based in the beautiful mountains of Andalucia. Here I am able to concentrate on my own writing, whilst offering my Book Doctor services via email. My aim is to facilitate dreams and make the goal of publication a realistic and plausible outcome.
"Get a Professional Second Opinion on Your Writing"
Here is a rundown of my past work experience and qualifications:
I received an honours degree in Scriptwriting for Film & Television in 1996. During the latter part of the 1990's I worked in the London Film Industry helping develop the work of both new and established writers. I was employed by ICM, a talent agency, Casarotto Ramsay, a literary agency representing screenwriters and directors, Robert Fox, a theatre producer and The Almeida Theatre in Islington. For all of these companies I was employed as a reader. A reader is someone who is specifically taken on to read and critique all the incoming spec scripts/manuscripts. I was the filter who decided what to pass onto the agent or producer or what to pass. This professional background has trained me in trouble-shooting scripts and manuscripts and allows me to see your writing in terms of potential market demand.

I arrived in Spain in 2003 where I have been teaching creative writing ever since and in 2004, after much demand and market interest I set up my unique Book Doctor service.
I also have substantial writing experience of my own which allows me to empthasise with the joys and frustrations of the writing life. My credits include regular non-fiction articles for UK based magazines such as Viva Espana and Natural Health. I have also had poetry and short stories published both in the UK and Spain and currently have a feature film in development with a London based Film Producer.
The combination of my experiences both as a writer and a reader gives you a qualified and professional service which aims to support you, inspire you, encourage you and believe in your writing dreams. I give you 100% of my energy and commitment and it is my genuine intention to make you a better writer.
