About Me

I’m an author of historical fiction and a writing & publishing  coach/mentor from Edinburgh.

My self-published debut novel The Last Gift, became a bestseller in 2015 and since then I’ve produced two siblings. In 2017 I joined Charlotte Green Publishing, UK. My books are available at Waterstones, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and other bookstores.

Most of my life revolves around my beautiful little boy and in addition to that, I spend a lot of time making tea and helping beginner writers to improve their work and carve their own path in the publishing world. I’m happy to reach out to writers wherever they may be.

You can follow me via Twitter @Carla_Anne, or contact me if you have any questions.

    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

    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

      Hello Moira, not in Gibraltar sadly. A physical group is formed in my new location but check out the courses I’m providing online soon, these are based on the physical classes you attended.
      Best regards
