Bradley

Managing Director

He is a passionate writer himself and frustrated by aspects of the changing publishing process and believes every writer should write first and not be bogged in by sales and marketing processes that are expensive and time wasting to writers. He designed the agency using the hybrid model of collective authors contributing small amounts to the overall benefits of the groups marketing and promotional values, allowing for higher brand development for all authors.

Tansy

New Zealand Managing Director

Tansy is an Australian author who now calls Christchurch, New Zealand home, where she is excited to be supporting Kiwi writers to publish and share their stories. It is in New Zealand that her dream of writing and publishing a book came to fruition. Since childhood, she’d dreamt of writing a book and remembers daydreaming about publishing a book when busy writing scientific articles and reports as an environmental scientist and then blogs and recipes as a nutritionist. Tansy has now published a self-help book and has children’s books and novels in the pipeline for publication. She has developed a strong passion for the writing process and publication, and is thrilled to support Kiwi writers get their voices into print and out to the world.
