I’m Vanessa and I’m a writer. I’ve just finished my first novel and my agent is David Headley at DHH Literary Agency. Hopefully, I’ll have some exciting news re publication dates and so on soon.
In 2015, I won the Pitch Perfect competition for unpublished writers at Bloody Scotland, the crime writing festival held in Stirling each autumn.
