Read, write, learn
Do you have a writing group, a literary club or a book group?
I have been writing fiction for well over a decade – not counting all the years I spent as a child writing stories! I don’t claim to know everything. Writing is a voyage of discovery, where you learn new things all the time, me included.
Find out below about the services I offer to writing groups, literary clubs and book groups. Some of these are completely free.

Take your writing to another level in a supportive learning environment.
I offer workshops for writing groups tailored to your requirements. A morning, a day, a weekend, or longer if you wish.
These are practical, hands-on events, where the emphasis is on putting theory into practice.
My reasonable fees include preparation, running the workshop and travel expenses.
Do you need a speaker for your bookish event?
I have given many talks to literary festivals, literary clubs and library groups on:
- The publishing industry and getting into print.
- Corsican history and culture.
- French rural life in times past.
Depending on the event, I may charge a speaker’s fee and/or travel expenses.
Enhance your book club discussions with input from the author.
I will be happy to talk to your book club about any of my books, either in person (in France) or by Zoom (elsewhere).
I can provide questions for discussion on request, whether I attend or not.
This service is free.
