Andy Brinkley

Andy Brinkley is a father of three and a charity worker from the UK.

Prior to taking the ‘Write Storybooks For Children’ course Andy had no experience of writing children’s stories and, like many aspiring authors, didn’t know where or how to begin.

After starting ‘Write Storybooks For Children’, Andy began sketching out his first children’s story with his ideal writing partner – his 7-year-old daughter!

Each night, at bedtime, they would fill out the little plan they had created from the advice he learned in the course. For his daughters 8th birthday, he had it published on Createspace and surprised her with a delightful package from Amazon.

Two months after this encouragement, Andy developed a magazine on the Apple Newstand called ‘Short Story Writer’. To date, it has been downloaded over 10,000 times. A tremendous achievement!

I’d never be in this position if I’d not been given the inspiration from the ‘Write Storybooks For Children’ course!
