Meet The Shawline Team

Bradley Shaw

Bradley

Managing Director

Bradley brings his connections and skills to the offering. He is often frustrated by aspects of the changing publishing process and limited opportunities in the market for new voices and believes every writer should write first and not be bogged in or overwhelmed 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 in the community.

If you are interested in gaining the best advice for your work and options in becoming a new published author, you are welcome to book in for a personal one-on-one, hour long consultation to gain professional advice from Bradley by emailing your request directly to us below and we will confirm the best time and options to support you.

Stephanie

Administration

Stef has always been passionate about writing and reading, having spent more of her formative years writing novels and poetry online. This passion for creative writing led her to a career in Screen and Media, where she produced multiple episodes of national and international reality television shows. But, despite flexing her creative muscles in a screen editorial capacity, she has always had a passion for Publishing.

She is excited to grow with Shawline and fully immerse herself in every aspect of the publishing process, as well as help support the team as it, too, grows. When she’s not immersed in the latest sci-fi, or crime mystery, she’s building furniture from scratch, cooking obscure recipes and taking her cat for walks.
