Here's What I Know About You:


📚You want to write your first novel, while keeping on top of the 9-5 and looking after the kids.

📚Because you're busy, you know you have to fit your writing around your lifestyle, not the other way around. 

📚You know if you finish your novel creative fulfillment, new possibilities and perhaps even extra income await.

📚Only 1 in 10 manuscripts actually get finished.

You want to be that 1.

How do I know? Because that was me.

I've been in your shoes.


To guarantee you get to The End, there are 3 things you need to do:

Get Your Head Straight!

Get into the right headspace so you can write without 'comparisonitis'. This is something most new writers forget about. The result is they don't finish their novel. Don't underestimate how important this is.

Get Your Story Straight!

This is your first novel so keep things simple. Learn how to use character, point of view and the traditional story structure to write a novel that builds tension, keeps your reader interested and leaves them wanting more.

Get Published!

When your book is finished it's time to publish. At the end of this course you'll understand the difference between traditional and indie publishing so you can make an informed decision about what's best for you.

Hi, I’m Emma

I began writing seriously while a stay at home mum with 3 children under five years old. I needed something for myself and for my future. 

By changing my mindset, being consistent, and developing confidence I have gone from having a collection of handwritten notes to two fully written, professionally edited, and published novels. 

Having experienced first-hand how writing changes lives, I now help beginner writers find the time and confidence to write their own first novel. 

Before writing, I trained as a stage actor and worked in London for a decade before moving with my husband to Hong Kong. After seven years in Hong Kong we relocated to Edinburgh, Scotland, where my writing came together and publication beckoned. 

It's important to have mentors and I regularly turn to Joanna Penn for publishing, K.M. Weiland for writing craft, as well as Amy Porterfield on how to create this excellent online training for you.

The confidence and self-belief writing and publishing my first novel have given me, has literally changed my life. I now know there's nothing I can't do if I make the decision to do it.

You can do the same 😃

You can do it too!
