About Us

The Book Consultancy was founded by Sarah Williams to help authors, whether just beginning and unsure where to turn, or established and overstretched, to get their books out and into the hands of their readers, effectively and efficiently.

As an author of over 80 books herself (under the names of both Sarah Williams and Sarah Matthews), and having worked for a number of years for the eminent French children’s book publisher, Gallimard Jeunesse, Sarah knows full well the challenges facing authors and publishers, at every stage from initial idea to finished book. Sarah’s most recent book, published March 2015, is a practical, accessible, highly knowledgeable introduction to How To Write Crime Fiction (Robinson, 2015).
