About us


Outset Publishing was born in 1990.  Over the last 25 years Outset has worked closely with the NHS and related organisations to produce staff training and public health information materials.  Isabel has enjoyed editing topics ranging from foot health to incontinence!

Then last year Isabel completed her MA in Professional Writing and rekindled her love of writing fiction.  So now, together with her brother David, Isabel is enjoying writing about topics that will rarely, if ever, mention foot health and incontinence, but will certainly explore story worlds far and near. Both Isabel and David are members of the Alliance of Independent Authors.

When it comes to writing we all know what we like.

By keeping an eye on this website you will hear about our new publications as soon as they are available. We have plans for novels, novellas, short story collections and poetry anthologies –  we hope there will be something for everyone – or at least quite a lot of you!

As well as new publications, we are going to explore words and try to explain why we are so fascinated with them, and we’ll let you know what we are reading too.

Have a look around the website and let us know what you think.  We would love to hear from you, so feel free to comment on any of the articles – let’s get reading and writing!
