If we haven’t met before – Hi! My name’s Scott Stuart.
I wanted to be an author since I was 8 years old, but like many aspiring authors, I was far better at procrastinating than actually getting any writing done. So, by the time I was 30 years old, I still hadn’t written anything, even though I constantly dreamed of being an author.
Finally, with the birth of my son, I thought “wouldn’t it be cool if I wrote a book about him so he could read it when he gets a little older?!”
So, in one night, I wrote my first picture book.
And honestly, it wasn’t great, but I absolutely fell in love with the process of writing.
And now, 10 years later, I’ve had numerous best-sellers, my books have been translated into over a dozen languages, they’ve been adapted for the stage (and soon the screen!), as well as receiving nominations for Children’s Book of the Year & Picture Book of the Year – and I’ve managed to become a full-time author. My lifelong dream – well, my dream for 32 out of 40 years anyway!
I genuinely look forward to working on my books, and every day I get messages like this in my email:
Now if you want to be an author, but you haven’t managed to get your book written, all of those achievements may seem absolutely ridiculously out of reach, but I’m only mentioning them to show that even the authors you know all started at the same spot as you – with a blank page, writing their first book.
And that’s what this course is here to help you do.
By the end of this online course, you will have all the tools and guidance you need to go from a blank page, to a finished picture book manuscript – one that you can be proud of, one that you can share with the people in your life, and possibly, one that could lead to something even bigger.
