You want to make an impact and you know nobody can write your book the way you can, but you’re not a ‘real writer’.
I’m Clare Bunting, a coach and an editor who also writes. I help people get clear on their ideas, work through blocks and carve out time to write their books, so they are one step closer to getting it into the hands of the person who needs to read it.
