Hi, I'm Cara. 

Before starting my own consultancy, I worked in academic and educational
publishing for ten years. But I am also an independently published author, which means I have a unique understanding of what it's like on both sides of the publishing fence.

I work across a wide range of genres but my particular interests are:

>> Helping people tell their personal stories of empowerment and courage.

>> Helping businesses create non-fiction books that bolster their brand, attract new clients,
and establish them as a voice of authority in their industry.

>> Providing manuscript appraisals and development editing for fictional works, particularly Young Adult Fiction, Crime, Psychological Thrillers, Fantasy Fiction, and Romance.

>> Coaching writers in need of support and guidance at any stage of their career.

>> Ghostwriting both fiction and non-fiction.

Cara is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I found her open and welcoming. The advice I received is invaluable. The setting was perfectly placed for writers who are both insular and those who simply need peace and comfort in which to write. I will definitely join Cara for another retreat. I can not give a higher recommendation.

One Day Writing Retreat

Cara led me and my writing partner Tom through the whole process of completing the book and an accompanying parent guide. She even created a website and coached us through the process of the pre-launch and the book launch.  


The whole process was seamless and we felt nurtured and supported by Cara throughout. I can’t recommend her highly enough and will certainly be using her services again. Thanks Cara - you are an absolute gem!"

It's All About Bodd

Cara motivated me into pushing ahead to get Gently They Rage published. I had suffered with ill-health for some time, greatly affecting my energy and making the finishing process very difficult. I needed expert guidance to affect the final process and this she provided. From the moment she gave me a schedule marking out the various dates to work to it made my task easier.
