how to write a book

Being An Author Is More Than Writing A Book

I want to help you become an author and to share your message on a bigger platform. Whether you’re just starting on your author journey, or whether you’re an established expert, it is probably your desire to write that has brought you here. You want to know what it takes to become an author, to be published, and make a difference with your words. You are in the right place.


You want to put your ideas into an intelligent book. You have expertise and experience and want to use a book to position you, raise your profile, your fees, your credibility, and – ultimately – share your vision and inspire your reader. You’re already successful, and now you want to expand; challenge yourself to show up more powerfully. You’ve seen other people do it, you know it’s possible and you’re ready. You want to give a voice to your ideas, and grow your business at the same time. You’re driven by why you do what you do, and you balance heart and head; passion and strategy. You are decisive and motivated. You know that you succeed by taking action. Thinking about a solution isn’t enough. You have to move – that’s when the magic happens.


I will help you take your ideas, write your book, publish, and create something tangible and powerful. That balance of strategic and creative is where I work best. And I love it. I support your ambition whole-heartedly. I take that vagueness out of your head – and help you turn it into a well-structured book that will engage your reader and enhance your reputation. Strategy. It comes back to understanding what drives you. There is more than one book and you need to choose the one that is right for you now. I am a teacher, a mentor and a writer. I don’t do it for you (or at least rarely), but when we connect in one of my courses, or my small group training, you get my unparalleled support to write the best book you can. I will help you take that next step, help you become an author.

Writing is a process that expands you as a person. You write to express your ideas, you write to communicate, and you write to inspire. And it’s a process that only gets better with practice and support.

If you’d like to get some practice, to learn how to structure your non-fiction ideas, then I’d like to invite you to try my Becoming A Writer course. Over 12,000 writers have joined and the reviews are stunning.

“I am writing a book and this course is exactly what I need.”

“I bought Cathy’s course because I was struggling to find my ‘voice’. The exercises really helped me to do that, allowing me to free up my writing for a new audience. She explains the exercises very clearly and is lovely to listen to. Thanks Cathy!”

“Her voice is that of a teacher who loves the material and genuinely wants the best for the student.”

I’d love you to give it a try and see where your writing will take you!
