Sandra M Dean Life Writing Workshops

Keep a lookout for on-line courses COMING SOON!

I am a self-published author of eight books (under the pseudonym Amanda Green CLICK HERE TO SEE MY AUTHOR WEBSITE INCLUDING MENTAL HEALTH), including memoirs, short stories and fiction. I have been writing about my life since I was fourteen in very many different ways (journals, letters, essays and more), and find it a great tonic and therapy to continue to write about my experiences and issues. I am a trained BACP Counsellor and Mental Health Wellness Coach and thrive on helping others with their issues.

Therefore, these are unique workshops and we should be lots of fun, as well as being therapeutic and productive. I can help in a therapeutic way and/or with your writing skills – it’s your choice!

I am fully insured with public liability insurance. All workshops are confidential.

My new book release & a change of genre – MY LOVELY BOY – an adult only, graphic psychological thriller that comes with a warning

MY LOVELY BOY cover

MY LOVELY BOY cover

WOW, 3 x 5* reviews already for my new release book out for Halloween

99p – want to read?

Oh, this is different, VERY different to my other books; even though I am a multi-genre author. I have always wanted to write a psychological thriller, and after this one, I think I will write more. Writing twists and turns, using hints and deceit; it’s so exciting to write.

MY LOVELY BOY is dark, sinister, psychological and comes with a warning as it does contain scenes which some people may find upsetting.

 

‘Phoebe first meets her Great Auntie Val at her 19th birthday party.

The family are thrilled to have a new family member.

Then Phoebe meets Paul whom his mother calls ‘My Lovely Boy’

Life will never be the same again…’

After writing seven books and achieving my Counselling diploma, I’m now offering Life Writing Workshops in Essex

I have a massive passion for writing. It is something that can be shared, it can hold memories, and it can entertain and educate… I write for myself (for my eyes only), I blog, I write books and adverts and it can be very therapeutic.

Therefore, combining my experience of writing (as Amanda Green, Author) with my expertise in counselling, I feel ‘Life Writing Workshops’ make absolute sense. I have worked out an itinerary that will unlock your thoughts and feelings and leave you with some fascinating pieces of writing, with feedback, that you can go away with to put in your drawer or even to start your own memoir.

This is my favourite restaurant, by far. OK I have only eaten in a few Michelin star restaurants, but many fine dining restaurants in my time, in the UK and abroad, and this beats all of them, especially in consistency. I have never been disappointed by a single thing, apart from not getting a Christmas cracker with my Christmas set menu J

We ate there last Thursday as a treat for my birthday (4th December) quite excited about what might be on the menu when we were greeted with a set menu too good to turn down. The Christmas menu had three choices of starter Continue reading Chapter one restaurant Christmas menu, Locksbottom, Kent for my birthday on Thursday 4th December 2014
