I have recently changed the way I provide mentoring services. To provide the very best mentoring service for clients looking to work on their projects with me, the time frame needs to be expanded so that a close working relationship can be built within a less pressured environment. This means taking less clients. I will only be taking two mentees a year from now on, but for a longer period of time, roughly three months at the outset. There will be an application process, which you can find out about by dropping me a line at

I am also hoping to provide at least one sponsored mentoring service a year for a writer in financial difficulties. If you would like to help a disadvantaged writer access the benefits that working with a professional mentor and writer brings, please consider sponsoring a mentoring slot by following this link to the shop: SHOP

Thank you!
