Siobhan Curham is a best-selling and award-winning author of 40+ books for adults, young adults and children – fiction and non-fiction. She is also a university drop-out who very nearly gave up on her writing dream because, as a former council estate kid, she didn’t believe she belonged in the middle class world of publishing.
Because her path to publication was so full of obstacles (both internal and external) Siobhan has made it her mission to help as many people as possible overcome their fears and achieve their dreams. Prior to the pandemic she had given talks and workshops on writing and daring to dream to thousands of people all over the world. Although she has currently put this work on hold to focus on her writing she will be relaunching her coaching service in September 2023.
Siobhan has written for many newspapers, magazines and websites, including The Guardian, Breathe magazine, Cosmopolitan, Writers’ Forum, DatingAdvice.com, Mother and Baby, Practical Parenting and Take a Break. She has also been a guest on various radio and TV shows, including Woman’s Hour, BBC News, GMTV and BBC Breakfast.
And she has spoken at businesses, schools, universities and literary festivals around the world, including the BBC, Hay Festival, Cheltenham Festival, Bath Festival, Ilkley Festival, YALC, YA Shot, London Book Fair and Sharjah Reading Festival.
She has also helped many people, including celebrities, musicians, business owners, coaches, bloggers, novelists, self publishing authors and entrepreneurs with their writing through her writing coaching and editing.
