hey there, i'm hollie!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm here to help you take your story to the next level, but in order to do so, here's some things you might want to know about me:

  • I've had a passion for stories from a young age. I'm that kid who watched films over and over again (back when you used to have to rewind tapes). It's a handy habit now, when I rewatch or reread a mystery to spot all the clues.

  • I'm engaged in social justice movements and passionate about inclusivity. You and whoever your story is about will always be welcome here.

  • My specialist genres are mystery, thrillers, crime, fantasy and sci-fi. "The Prestige" by Christopher Priest is one of my faves. If you need guidance on dropping the breadcrumbs, or just a test drive of your treasure map – I can help! Find out more about my genres here.

  • As a self-published writer myself, I know how daunting it can be to share your work with others. That's why my feedback will always be honest but encouraging, there's no nasty red marker pen here. My purpose is to support you and scrub up your writing, so you can produce the very best version of your story.

my background & experience

On to the important stuff. Here is why my expertise can transform your work:

  • I graduated as Creative Writing student of the year, with a first class BA Hons degree in Creative Writing and Film from De Montfort University. Spending three years in the trenches with syntax, character development, structure and grammar has given me an in-depth understanding of how to develop engaging writing – and how to deliver helpful feedback. You can read samples of my writing here.

  • I self-published my first book on my degree; not only did I write, edit and proofread the content but I also designed the covers, formatted the manuscript, arranged a deal with printers and marketed the book. I have a plethora of knowledge at your disposal. Check out some of my starter kits here.

  • I gained my first professional experience in editing for publishing house WriteEnd, editing novels including "Lullaby for Leo". As a freelance editor, I will provide you with detailed documentation of my feedback, useful notes on your manuscript and suggestions for improvement. You can find out more about my services and fees here.
