Hello! Welcome to The Editor Who Reads Too Much!
Why am I starting a book blog, you ask? Well, I came home one day from the library and a trip to Foyles (a bookstore in London) with a rather heavy load. Exasperated, my husband asked me why I couldn’t just read the books on our bookshelves.
He had a point.
We have two massive bookshelves both two rows deep in books. I’m sad to say I’ve read less than half. The to be read (TBR) pile was over 100 before we moved from Dubai to London, and London’s bookshops are all marvellous, so … here I am with 100+ books to read.
Join me as I wade through the books on my bookshelves, books in the library, books on my Kindle, as I try to find the best examples to share with writers looking to hone their craft!
I read a lot and I hope to help authors with the craft of writing. I share good examples of difficult aspects of writing: point of view, narration, world building and more.
Occasionally I give editing tips and share insights from the world of publishing.
