Listening to Sarah Williams talk is like listening to a How to Be an Author The Right Way talk. History buff, world traveller and published author, Sarah heeds her own advice when she tells her students to live a life worth writing about. Running courses on how to write synopsises and blurbs, co-ordinating the Townsville Writers & Publishers Centre and organising the Townsville Writers Festival are a few things that keep Sarah busy, not to mention her four kids and regular writing habit. She also manages to find time to learn; think Michael Hyatt and how to pitch, the annual RWA Conference, Alliance of Independent Authors, and her own publishing company, Serenade Press (I met Sarah at a Joanna Penn Conference in Brisbane). Tired yet? Wait, I haven’t mentioned her writing. Sarah is celebrating the launch of The Brothers of Brigadeen Station, Book 1 of her Brothers trilogy set in outback Queensland – this one out Julia Creek way, with books two and three not far away. Sarah’s secret? Deadlines, albeit self-imposed. You can find out more about Sarah on her Facebook page, Sarah Williams Writer.
