Hi, my name’s Gary.
I love writing – always have, always will.
I’m particularly fond of writing kids books, mainly in rhyming form, and my first book – As Nice as Pie – is being published after many years of trying in November 2016 on Maverick Arts!
When I’m not working full-time as a copywriter, much of my spare time is spent researching picture books or developing my own ideas. My work is greatly influenced by authors such as Julia Donaldson, Roald Dahl, Dr Seuss and Jeanne Willis, but I’d like to think that it expresses its own humour and personality.
If you want to join me on my writing journey, feel free to follow me on here and on Twitter – gary_shep.
Please feel free to comment – all feedback gratefully received!
Thanks for taking an interest in me and my books!
