About Me

Hi, I’m an author and writing group leader living in Scotland, UK. I’ve been active for more than ten years leading physical writing groups, hosting author events, and publishing three highly-reviewed novels whilst helping new writers achieve their goals.

My self-published debut novel The Last Gift, became a bestseller in Amazon’s Historical Fiction Category in 2015 and since then I’ve produced three more novels.

In 2017 I joined Charlotte Green Publishing, UK. My books are now available at Waterstones, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other bookstores.

You are welcome to get in touch at rockwriters@hotmail.com. If you have any questions, I am always happy to offer advice and tips with regard to writing and publishing.

You can also  subscribe to receive updates on my posts and news about my upcoming titles. Or follow me  on twitter. I regularly tweet about my writing life, and offer helpful tips for other authors.

    Hello Carla, great to meet you and thanks for stopping by. If you are in the UK have you tried the Writers and Artists yearbook which lists publisher/agent details and requirements in the UK? The following listing is also useful http://www.writersservices.com/listings/uk-literary-agent-listing. There is a lot of research involved in finding an agent and I also advise not to overlook the smaller and lesser known businesses, which would improve your chances and can also offer many publishing advantages.
    In any case, I wish you the very best of luck with your book!
    Regards
    Carla

  3. Hello Carla,

    I’ve spent a most enjoyable day reading The Last Gift, which I will recommend to others. The book was very well written, good pace of delivery, and tugged at the emotions; I admit to shedding a tear in places.

    One short paragraph near the end of the book was outstanding, one of the best I have ever read. The book finished in the correct place; so often authors get this wrong. I look forward to reading your next. I remain very impressed.
    best wishes,
    Jonno

    Hi Carla, just wanted to drop a note to say how much I’ve enjoyed Girl Forgoten and also that you’re a great inspiration to wannabe writers like me! It would be great to see more posted ‘how to’help articles. 🙂
