I’m thrilled to have YA author Keris Stainton as my first guest. I met Keris in an online writing group many years ago, and I have been delighted and excited to watch her build a successful career as a beloved author of YA fiction.
We talk about our writing processes and routines, and the importance of support and mentorship.
Books recommended in the show:
Daring Greatly by Brené Brown
The Joy Diet by Martha Beck
The 7 Secrets of the Prolific by Hillary Rettig
The WoMentoring project set up by author Kerry Hudson. It’s a peer mentoring service run on a voluntary basis which offers support for female writers who are unable to access paid-for services.
The Brené Brown TED talk on the power of vulnerability
Suzy Greaves: Life coach and author of The Big Leap
I’m very new to this so I’d love feedback. Please get in touch.
