Over the past few months we’ve shared information about the incredible local authors we have in our region and the array of books they’ve written and published. Today we’re going to turn to the Socially Shared Bookshop once again and share the rest of our talented authors.

If you haven’t already browsed the selection of books available, then pop over and take a look. There’s something to suit every reading taste.

Here is the third group of talented authors:

Sara founded the award-winning company, Coaching Impact, in 2008 and worked with a variety of organisations throughout the UK and across the world. Before that she taught Drama in challenging inner-city schools.

Sue Williams, author of multiple titles, including Believe You Can: Live a Life You Love at 50+, Believe You Can Succeed, and I am Unique (poetry): Sue knows what it’s like to suppress your creativity as she did it for most of her adult life. It was only by exploring her creative self-expression after she took early retirement from the Civil Service that she rediscovered a sense of her own identity and voice. After she began journaling each morning, she was delighted to discover that her writing started to flow in rhyme! She went on to publish her own book of poetry, I Am Unique, which became an Amazon best-seller in 2017 and also a set of inspirational Believe Oracle Cards, which won a Janey Loves Gold award the same year. She has also collated three anthologies of true stories by women on the topic of self-belief. She is particularly passionate about helping women in midlife to break the mould and achieve their dreams for later life.

S.R. Summers, author of Indigo Lost: Book 1 of The Infinity Squared Series: The first book in the Infinity Squared Series. Don't think. Just run. When what lies ahead is less fearful than what lies behind, and west-coast unknowns less terrifying than east-side tragedies, there is no choice other than the one through the window at the end of a third-floor police station corridor. Without another thought, the girl runs. Her jump will take her to the street below, to encounters with humanity that will both shock and save her, to the girl she becomes the one who knows how to fight, but also survive, even shine, in the darkest places. She does not go unnoticed. The mob boss, the ruler of Vegas, has seen her. But she is not ready to be seen. And this time there is no corridor and no window.

Rachel Hill, author of Be Your Own Thyroid Advocate, and You, Me and Hypothyroidism: Rachel is the highly ranked and award-winning thyroid patient advocate, writer, speaker and author, behind the thyroid advocacy website: The Invisible Hypothyroidism. Diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's, she talks openly and honestly about what it's like to have these and what has helped her and many others to recover their health and thrive with thyroid disease. She is passionate about helping those with hypothyroidism and giving them a voice and is well recognised as a valuable contributor to the thyroid community.

Rachael Watt, author of On Your Terms: How to Create a Successful Business and Live a Life You Love. Rachael is an award-winning marketer, author, international speaker, strategic business advisor, chai latte lover and for the last eight years a solo mum on a mission - a mission to create a business and life she loves, that fits the lifestyle she wants, on her terms and to help as many others as she can, to do the same.
