My manuscript assessment services are not available at the moment while I'm setting up OneTree House.


I have had over 20 years experience in the publishing industry assessing works and helping writers to polish their manuscripts to an award-winning level.


I can provide:


  • constructive, comprehensive and honest feedback that will enable you to present only your best work for consideration by your chosen publishing house.

  • guidance on which publishing house to approach and how to go about it.

  • information on the publishing process or suggestions on how to self-publish if you wish.


There is, however, no guarantee that your work will be published at the end of this process.


"The appraisal is very  helpful and gives me lots to work on . . . I wouldn't hesitate to ask her to assess further manuscripts for me."

Eleanor Hughes (writer)


"She is well qualified to give constructive commentary to writers for children."

Penny Scown (Senior Editor - Scholastic NZ Ltd)


Thanks SO much for this feedback! It's exactly what I was needing and it is invaluable to have a second set of eyes look over the story and cover letter. I agree with everything you have written.
