Looking for support on the next step of your writing journey?

My name is Natali and I write thrillers as Natali Simmonds and fantasy for all ages as N J Simmonds. With twenty-five year’s experience in marketing, branding, copywriting, NLP and psychotherapy, combined with my history as both a traditional and self-published author, I love nothing more than helping writers improve their craft and get noticed.

In August 2022 I launched six new services to support authors at various stages of their writing journey.

Resilience Training is coaching for writers who feel like giving up.

* All calls are via telephone or video call, not in person. Clients can request more hours than stated and can return as many times as required. Natali Juste Simmonds has the right to refuse any client at any stage (payment is made in advance, upon receipt of confirmation). All writers who apply must do so with an open mind and the understanding that all advice given will be done so with their best interests at heart.
