BIO: Novelist Caroline Smailes, a graduate of MMU’s Creative Writing School, has gained a wealth of experience within the publishing and literary community. She has participated in literary festivals and given workshops across the country focusing on the art of fiction, the building of author web presence and the craft of writing.
As well as writing literary fiction, blogging and twittering, Caroline mentored for Tonto Books in their Arts Council-supported project to discover, develop and publish talented new writers from the North East of England and also judged in the New Novelist competition.
She worked as an editor and as a reader for several publishers, before founding and developing the literary consultancy BubbleCow, from an understanding that modern writers require fast, efficient and affordable services that can be tailored to meet personal needs.
Her first three novels, In Search of Adam, Black Boxes and Like Bees to Honey were published by The Friday Project, an imprint of Harper Collins, with her digital novel scheduled for winter 2011. She lives on the Wirral with her husband and three children.
