About …

Let me tell you a story …


Simply put, I am just ‘one of you’.  An ordinary guy who yearned to be a writer, better still an author because that means writing books. Like many people, I have loved books for as long as I have been able to read and I learned what made a good one and what made a bad one; when I read the latter, I always said to myself I could do a better job!

So some years ago I started to write, and this was worse than in the bad books! But I persevered and practiced and learned from the good books and my research and it got better; a lot better. However, I still wasn’t convinced I’d got things right, but then I realised I could more easily rewrite one of those bad books or develop the plot better because that was where my creativity really was at its best; at that time, I felt I wasn’t destined to write my own books from a blank piece of paper.

I put aside the numerous books I had been writing all those years and began doing freelance writing and editing work and eventually, I got the client I was really looking for. He had some amazing ideas for his novel, but needed some help with his writing and we began working together and I loved it because it was so rewarding. This was still his book because it was his initial ideas, my job was to add to those and make further suggestions and encourage. His author Facebook page now has over 14,000 followers.

After that, I picked up broader and more diverse projects and joined a bigger freelancing company. As work really took off, Books from Start to Finish was born. But what about my own writing?

Nowadays, because I’ve learned so much more by working with others, I’m back writing my own books. I have finished three and more are in the pipeline. Who knows, I may even publish something myself very soon!

I really look forward to working with you on your book, whether it’s still just a small idea or a book in need of an edit, to me it’s all about a partnership and making new friends; just read my Clients … page and contact me today!

Writing books is so much fun … isn’t it time to start realizing your dream?
