Andersen Press buys debut story of survival...

I'm delighted to finally be able to talk about the fact that I've secured a deal for my client David Brazier with Andersen Press for his debut book ALONE. 

This is a wonderful story about a boy trying to survive alone in the Amazon after his plane crashes - there's also a gorgeous friendship with an otter cub. What's not to love?

Canon Tales: Slide 9

I decided I needed more publishing experience, so I offered to put together an anthology as part of a creative writing group. We had a committee to go through submissions (from across the city as well as the university) and we held evening meetings in co-editor James’s bedroom – he always supplied Vol au Vents…

Here I discovered the thrill of fighting for a piece of work and convincing everyone else it was worthy.
