about my story. I might write a play for the radio."
Mairi McGenity, Essex - Regarding Writer's Block Radio Programme

"Sarah's in depth and friendly coaching service is tailor made to get my writing into tip top condition to publish. I thoroughly recommend her"
BF, Retired Military Employee, Essex - Regarding Coaching and Mentoring

"Thank you so much for your in depth critical analysis of my political love thriller novel. When I began writing it, I had no concept of ideal length of chapters, hooking the readers attention from the outset rather than later, narrative formats, composition precise, possible difficulties with the use of foreign names. I had spent too much time thinking that I had nailed the perfect book, when in reality there is still much more to do before it is in a viable format for agents, publishers or readers to invest their time and money.

Your review was skilfully written and broken down into easy to understand sections. This would have taken you considerable time and for such a small invoice. Excellent value for money!
I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone embarking on any writing project."
