Kelley Townley ~ Fiction Writer & Editor

Hello there

  Thank you for visiting. I am a professionally qualified and experienced fiction writer & developmental editor from the UK, with an MA (Distinction) in creative writing from Bath Spa University. I have been in publishing for nearly twenty years and am pleased to say I have an outstanding record for skill and professionalism, most easily verified by looking at my published works and these independent reviews.

  I WRITE fiction for all ages from picture books to adult mass-market novels, and for a variety of clients: from traditional publishers and independents, to companies and charities. From picture books and short stories for magazines, to ESL chapter books and full-length novels. I also write graphic novels. Please click to see more about hiring me as a writer or ghostwriter.

  I offer MANUSCRIPT CRITIQUE where I produce a detailed reader's report on a book's strengths and weakness. This can be useful for publishers & agents, as well as independent authors. For authors wanting to develop their storytelling skills I offer practical advice and guidance on what to do next. Known as DEVELOPMENTAL EDITING this is different from copyediting or proofreading (which I do not offer). Basically, I act as a professionally qualified and experienced mentor for authors wanting to develop their craft. Please click to see more.
