Siobhan effortlessly guided me through the whole process of writing my first book, 'The Rule-Breaker's Guide to Social Media', while fuelling me on biscuits, tea and laughter. I’m so proud of what we have achieved and there is no way I would have had the confidence to create this book without her. I have already started planning Book 2 to get the partnership back together! Brilliant!
'We have discovered a gem in Siobhan Curham. She kept her audience of 450 students mesmerized with her formula of “How to write a great story” and “How to create a great life” and would now be our number one author to go to for a workshop or talk.'
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your talk on making friends with failure. Many people were talking about it in the office for days after. It really got us thinking. Inspiring."
Siobhan is one of the most gifted writers I have worked with in the last fifteen years. Subtleties of character, tone and plotting seem to come easily to her. She can turn her hand to writing for the very young right up to young adult, and in each case with real talent. She is unusually versatile and adept. And what's more, she is a joy to work with - a true professional.
I have worked closely with Siobhan for several years and on many different projects, so I've seen her at every stage of the creative process. She is one of the very best. She's always bubbling with rich ideas of her own, yet remains wonderfully responsive to those of others: she's a thoughtful and considerate listener, an intuitive encourager, with a gift for finding the heart and soul of a story and bringing it to vibrant life.'
Siobhan Curham not only knows how to craft a terrific story, but she writes with wit and intelligence, creating characters you believe in and who live on long after the last page is turned. Siobhan handles difficult issues sensitively yet energetically. Her writing is upbeat, life-affirming and full of that rare and wonderful ingredient: heart.
