Helping new and established authors to get out there and be published

‘I love supporting other authors to get new writing out to the world and become published authors. It gives me so much joy. I know what the publishers are looking for in the pitch process and love conceptualising new ideas for books and helping authors to get the work written in a structure that will get picked up.’ Susie Pearl
