Who is Alice Westlake?
Alice is a winner of the Walker Books and Mumsnet story competition in 2014, judged by a panel led by former Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne
Author of two children’s novels, Under Loch And Quay, and Margin of Horror (out spring 2016).
BA Hons 1st class in English Literature and Language, and Masters in Literature from Queen Mary University London.
Mum to two avid readers of kids’ middle grade and young adult fiction, I know what children enjoy reading and have a broad knowledge of both the pre-school and age 7-12 markets.
I specialise in children’s literature, but can answer (or attempt to answer!) your questions on any aspect of authorship: the writing process, character development, plot development, language, dos and don’ts, editing and revising your work…
From April 2016 I will be launching a consultancy service hosted by Mardibooks. For the next three months we are offering you the opportunity to access this service for free for a trial period.
Alice is really looking forward to answering your questions so do get in touch: #askmardi
