Short Bio.

Introverted, creative and above all else a dreamer.

I’m currently editing my fourth novel, Entangled. A speculative fiction similar to the TV series Fringe. My second and third novels are currently being queried. I love nothing more than reading fantasy novels, but I also enjoy paranormal romance and thrillers.

If I’m not reading or writing, you’ll find me binge watching TV series, having coffee dates with my friends, practicing yoga and taking woodland walks with my dog. My home and heart belong in Wales, I’m lucky enough to live in a pretty coastal town within Cardigan Bay where I have plenty of beaches at my fingertips.

Creating a pitch and delivering it to an agent face-to-face is a unique experience. Daunting? Yes, but with a little preparation you can execute a seamless pitch that will hook the agents interest and have them begging for more material. You’ve got this!!

How to Successfully Start Writing Stories

Ever dreamed of becoming a writer? I know many people have a secret desire to put pen to paper and craft a literature masterpiece. And yet many don’t. Perhaps you believe you don’t have the time or resources. Do you start and stop writing, never getting past the first few pages. I know that’s how I used to write: sporadic and blundering. So if you have grand plans for a debut, yet struggle with being overwhelmed at the prospect of crafting a whole novel… then read on for my getting started tips.

  4. Lorraine, thank you for stopping by Puddletown Reviews recently. I always enjoy meeting new visitors. I was especially pleased when I read you live in Wales. My first “boss” was a fine Welsh gentleman who had come to America to get his college degree and went on to get his doctorate in anatomy. I worked for him quite some time at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. A delightful, fully of practical jokes kind of fellow, I really enjoyed his stories of growing up in Wales. And I love the name Cardigan Bay. There has to be a book centered around that bay!

    Paranormal romance? Well, that’s a new one for me. Sounds quite interesting, that’s for sure. What a unique imagination you must have to create such writing. Cheers!
