Dear publishers and agents,
For twenty-five years, I have been writing professionally in a variety of media, to entertain, inform and influence a wide range of audiences. In 2011, I started writing fiction. I enjoy it immensely and have won some awards.
Some of my short stories for children have been published. I have unpublished manuscripts for several picture books, as well as a complete novel for young adults, and I'm working on a speculative fiction series for young adults.
I'm a member of the Australian Society of Authors, the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and Writers Victoria. I regularly attend industry workshops and conferences. I belong to a professional writers' group and we meet monthly to critique each other's work.
I have expertise in marketing and presentation skills too. If my writing interests you, please get in touch.
Dear Sir or Madam,
Will you read my book?
It took me years to write.
Will you take a look?
... I can make it longer if you like the style,
I can change it round
And I want to be a paperback writer,
