Useful Author Links
Below are links to other websites, organisations and creatives that I have had the pleasure to be involved with.
Meet the Rhymers – www.meettherhymers.com
Find out all about The Rhymers and my growing series of rhyming alphabet books, as well as videos, games, activities and much more. These books are a wonderful educational resource for pre-school and key stage one children encouraging learning through fun, colourful and engaging rhyming stories.
Catching Lives – www.catchinglives.org
Find out about Catching Lives homeless charity, operating in Canterbury, Kent. I have been volunteering with the charity since 2014 where I have been project co-ordinating and co-authoring the Harbledown book series with the clients.
Canterbury Creatives – www.canterburycreatives.org
Canterbury Creatives has been founded in 2018 to facilitate networking and support for creatives local to Canterbury and the East Kent area.
Lioness Writing – www.lionesswritingltd.com
I have worked closely with Elsa Lewis, the director of Lioness Writing Ltd and would highly recommend their professional publishing services.
Made by Kent
Made by Kent is a beautiful shop found in Staplehurst, Kent that supports local creatives. I have incredibly privileged to have my books on sale in the shop.
Below are links to writing resources, groups and organisations that I have found helpful in my writing journey and I hope you do too.
Joanna Penn – www.thecreativepenn.com
Joanna’s work is incredible. She generously shares her knowledge of writing and the art of self-publishing. She has over 200 podcasts freely available from her website www.thecreativepenn.com, a multitude of blogs and many books. I am grateful for her expertise that speaks directly into my own writing career.
Michael Hyatt – www.michaelhyatt.com
Michael is an inspiring speaker, motivator, business leader and podcaster. I have benefited greatly from his wisdom and his podcasts are fascinating.
Jeff Goins – www.goinswriter.com
Jeff’s book “Real Artists Don’t Starve” has been incredibly influential in changing my mind set and attitude towards life as a creative. I thoroughly recommend this book if you want to develop a successful career doing what you love.
WhitWord – www.whitword.com
WhitWord is a very supportive local writing group with interesting speakers and the opportunity to link up with other writers. The group meets in Whitstable, in East Kent. I would thoroughly recommend joining a group like this (or this one if you live in Kent!)
Writers’ Yearbook – www.writersandartists.co.uk
Each year The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook is released and it is a must for any aspiring author. There is a vast array of writing advice as well as many links to other organisations, agents and publishers. There are separate books available for adults and children’s writers.
