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In 2015, I won the Pitch Perfect competition for unpublished writers at Bloody Scotland, the crime writing festival held in Stirling each autumn.
This is where I write about what I’m writing, where I’m going, what I’m reading, and other random things such as house renovations and the neighbourhood where I live. I also include author interviews from time to time.
