Novelist, Motohuma the Firehead and The Vegetable Moonsamy.
Sally O-J took my poor embryonic novel and turned it into a readable, saleable book. She was incredibly helpful throughout the whole process; adjusting the plot, picking up anachronisms and anomalies, developing the style, teasing out the characterisation and pushing me continually to go further and try harder. She brought out the best in me, knowing instinctively that a good writer was buried in me somewhere. Most importantly, Sally believed in me and my book when nobody else did. She used her contacts to help me, and without her encouragement I would probably have given up. I love Sally wholeheartedly! Having started as a mentor, she became a friend – even though she sometimes made me cry.
