Calling all bookworms and reading enthusiasts! If you are passionate about books and love to know where the inspiration behind your favourite books comes from, enjoy unravelling the mysteries of non-fiction, or simply want to find out more about the writing processes of creative minds, then join us at our virtual Meet the Author Event.

The first of our eagerly anticipated Meet the Author Online events is here. You will have an exclusive opportunity to connect with not one but two distinguished authors from varied genres, each offering a unique glimpse into their writing world.

Meet our featured authors

The Romance Maestro…

Kim Nash | Meet the Author Online Event | Socially Shared

Prepare to be swept off your feet by Kim Nash, a bestselling author of uplifting, funny, heartwarming, feel-good fiction.

Kim’s debut novel, Amazing Grace, was published by Hera Books in April 2019. She has since gone on to write and publish another seven titles.

Her Cornish Cove series is set in the fictional seaside village of Driftwood Bay in Cornwall and is published by Boldwood Books. The third book in this series, Making Memories at the Cornish Cove, will be published on 17th April 2024.

Kim lives in Staffordshire with her son Ollie and English Setter rescue dog Roni, is a Digital Publicity Director for publisher Bookouture (a division of Hachette UK) and is a book blogger at Kim the Bookworm.

When she’s not working or writing, Kim can be found walking her dog at Cannock Chase, reading, binge-watching box sets on the TV, and dreaming of living by the sea! She’s also quite partial to a spa day and a gin and tonic (not at the same time!) Kim also runs a book club in Staffordshire and organises local and national reader/author events.

The Motivational Mage…

Are you on a quest for personal growth and enlightenment? Look no further than our second guest author, Shelley Wilson, a bestselling author of non-fiction self-help and personal development.

Shelley’s debut non-fiction book, How I Changed My Life in a Year, celebrates its ten-year anniversary in May 2024. It was self-published in 2014, picked up by WFHowes for the audio rights in 2016, and republished under BHC Press in 2018.

Shelley has since written twenty titles in various genres, including more non-fiction, children’s meditation, planners, and young adult fiction.

She lives in Solihull with her three children and a mischievous black cat named Luna. She runs a writing mentor business where she helps women in business write business books to boost their confidence and visibility.

When Shelley isn’t working or writing, she loves solo travelling in her VW Camper, Snoopy, exploring castles and historical sites, attempting to paddle board or kayak, visiting the cinema, and being by water. Shelley also works closely with Socially Shared to organise the networking author and bookish events around the region.
