“Norah’s perceptive eye captures the flow of the prose and the little grammar glitches with an equal measure of attention. She is a writer’s writer who can navigate anything from comma to content, and make it all fit, look, and sound just right.”

About The Writer’s Pen


My name is Norah Deay, and I am a writer. cool

I won my first short story competition when I was 10 years old but it was another 44 years before I felt comfortable telling anyone.

I was 54 when I was first published; I entered a competition to have a story featured in an anthology, and I won.

The rest, as they say, is history. I have more than 130 publications on Amazon. Most are journals and notebooks, but buried in there are 6 books and a few short stories.

As writers, we’re terribly hard on ourselves. Standing in front of a mirror repeating “I am a writer” over and over is not uncommon. We’re afraid our friends and family won’t take us seriously, or worse, if we’re not rich we mustn’t be any good.

Doing it for the money is not why writers write. You can repeat that in front of a mirror too. However, seeing your name in print is priceless.

At least I think it is.

If you want to see your name on the cover of a book sign up for this 6-week course.
