About

Writing, speaking and the confidence to share your authentic voice are the world’s most transferrable skills. My lifelong love of communication and performance began as a youth theatre student then senior tutor and director. Acting and directing in theatres, schools, workplaces, charities and universities formed my fascination with perception and reality: how the roles we play in life inform our identity; how self-belief can inhibit or enhance how much of that self we bring to our life, work and art.

That’s why I became an Associate Certified Coach (ACC) with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), took my LAMDA Diploma of Speech and Drama Education (LSDE) and PGCerts in Teaching Creative Writing from the University of Cambridge and Business and Personal Coaching with Barefoot Coaching and Chester University. You’ll find the same themes of authenticity, identity and communication in my first short story collection, Beyond Glass (Black Shuck Books, May 2021; second collection to be published 2023), in the stories I’ve contributed to anthologies such as the 2022 British Fantasy Award-nominated Dreamland (Black Shuck Books) and Uncertainties Vol. 3 (Swan River Press). I’m also the author of Your Creative Writing Toolkit and  GCSE Drama Revision and Study Guide (Illuminate/Hodder) and have written and presented features for Severin Films, Second Sight Films, Starburst Magazine and Youtube, Jewish Renaissance and Indicator Films. 

There is nothing I love more (apart from writing) than supporting others to enhance, develop and celebrate their authentic voice on the page and out loud.
