About Us

Hi, my name is Sandi and I am a mother of 2 and an avid reader. I have brought up my eldest reading books and loving reading, and he has discovered the joy of creative writing. And yet, while he spends many hours on the computer, chairing role playing forums where the challenge is to write the next phase in a MMPORPG or to write a mini novel for the consumption of the avid (teenage) audience, he is living the life of a Starving Writer.

You know the type, and there were plenty of movies in the 50s and 60s about this person! He was introverted (the thought of talking to other people, especially small-talk) exhausted him… he spent long days locked away in his room, living an unhealthy life, barely seeing the sun, nor exercising, eating poorly, and producing masses and masses of typed words. His manager (if he had one) was always suggesting that he needed to do something different, but he had his own ideas.

Doesn’t this sound like the average geeky 19 year old in today’s first world society?


About Me.. Sandi

I’m very much “into” learning about self publishing and I love researching how to publish my own books. I hope to help my son with my research, and I hope I can help you too.

I’d love to hear from you if you are keen to engage with me, just email me at contactus@starvingwriter.net.
