Thanks Linda. Your positive comments have given me encouragement. Also, I thought you would like to know that your class gave me the the story idea, the character Leighton and the skills to make this start.
Thank you so much.
For several years I’d had literary agents, publishers and Tv companies wanting my story of 20 years as a madam.
I have never wanted to be an author, and no interest in writing a book, but in 2010 I decided only I could write my story the way I wanted.
I started at chapter 1 then discovered I had no idea what I was doing and that it was a lot harder than it looks. In desperation, I enrolled in an adult education script writing class to learn how to write dialogue.
Linda Dunscombe was my teacher.
My book would not have been written without Linda’s help. I was an utter novice, she taught me structure, plotting, dialogue as well as motivating me to keep going when it got tough.
The many 5* reviews on Amazon and book award nominations are testimony to Linda’s teaching skills.
I’m now well on my way to finishing my second book. If you want to write, you want to write with Linda Dunscombe!
Good luck to you all.
Just wanted to say thanks again for all your time
and input during the Script Writing course. I'm sure all the other
attendees found it just as valuable and constructive as I have. While no doubt
I've still got a long way to go, the course has reignited my interest
in writing after a long hiatus. Crucially, the climb now seems a lot less intimidating!
Huge thanks for an excellent experience. Great
teaching techniques. Masterful
constructive criticism of our pieces. Very professional. The whole was an
I'll be back - in September.
Nobody wakes up one
day and thinks,
'I know, I'll run a brothel!'
It was more a case of stumbling, quite by accident into the profession.
Madam is a riotously funny and touching peek through the keyhole of provincial massage parlours.
Becky Adams escorts you through her memoirs, from her challenging childhood
to brothel keeping in Buckinghamshire.
Her outrageous story is a witty and thought provoking tale of betrayal, friendship, love and loyalty. From saucy scandals and soft toys, to raids, robberies and ‘fancy fetishes’ all accompanied
by a nice cup of tea and a ginger nut biscuit.
The truth really is stranger than fiction.
