      Hilly Good luck, Danielle and welcome. Submitting is pretty daunting, isn't it.

About

I used to live in the Middle East where I wrote travel guides for American and French publishers and was deputy editor of Good Housekeeping Magazine. Now I'm a features writer for Waitrose Weekend. I also write a blog about living and working in the Middle East - which you can find here: https://daniellesimpson.wordpress.com/ and I have completed my first novel - She, Herself & I which I'm in the process of submitting for representation. I'm more of a traveller than a good housekeeper. I love writing. I don't much like submitting. I have a very large dog called Neo who travelled from the Middle East to the UK with me. And I very much hope to 'meet' some fellow writers on here for chats, support, feedback, writers groups etc. If you know of any (physical as opposed to online) writers' groups in Herts or N. London please let me know - I'd love to join one.
