My name is Diane Paul. I've been a professional writer all my working life.
I've worked in public relations, journalism and publishing. I'm an award-winning author, a scriptwriter, a creative writing tutor, a writer in education, an editorial consultant and a blogger.
I've authored three books, one of which won two book awards. I have an MA in scriptwriting. I write a successful book blog: http://bookblogforbookworms.blogspot.com/ I appraise writers' manuscripts, copy-edit books and tutor on degree level courses.
I also compose music - some of which is currently in production.
