Book coaching, ghostwriting and copywriting

for purpose driven leaders

Is there an idea that won’t leave you alone?

It could be a story worth telling, a personal journey that will bring hope to others, or a body of knowledge you’ve worked hard to acquire that could inspire meaningful change. You’re ready to channel all that wisdom and experience into a book, or to offer your services online.

The trouble is, where do you start? After all, you’re ‘not a real writer’. There’s so much going on in your life – work, family, community – that you never seem to find the time.

And when you do manage to sit down at the keyboard, you just feel overwhelmed. There are so many ideas squirreling around in your head, how are you supposed to shape it all into a book? Or perhaps there are so many threads to your work that you can’t figure out how to tie it all together on your website?

You don’t have to do it alone. Together, we’ll get clear on your ideas, find your core message, identify your audience, map your book or your website, and get the writing done.

You don’t have to write alone.

I’m Christine Sheehy

I’m a non-fiction book coach, ghostwriter and copywriter for purpose-driven leaders with a message worth sharing.

I help aspiring authors like you take your ideas and wisdom from your head to the page – and have fun doing it. I’ll walk alongside you as you create a book that not only makes your heart sing, but helps you spread your message and build your authority, so you can grow your audience and your business.

If you’re building a service-based business, I can help you pull all the threads of your work together in one engaging brand story. Together, we’ll find the core message at the heart of your work and create compelling website copy that feels like you.

So who am I to help you write a book or share your work?

I’ve been living and breathing books for most of my life. I’m the co-author of the bestselling Longshots: the greatest underdog stories in New Zealand sport and I’ve contributed to many other books as writer, editor and ghostwriter. As a children’s writer, my stories have featured in international magazines and been shortlisted for the Joy Cowley Award.

As a book coach and copywriter, I love helping my clients cut through the noise, discover what they really have to say and find the courage to say it. I’ll help you find your natural writing voice, give structure to your ideas, make sure your message lands and stay focused on your goal. I’ll pick you up when you’re having doubts and I’ll give you honest feedback in service of the work.

My clients’ books have made the front page of the Sunday Star-Times, been featured in magazines like Woman and The Listener, and on Radio NZ and TVNZ.

Who do I work with?

I could be the right book coach or copywriter for you if:
  • You have a powerful message and feel called to share it.
  • Your work is service-based, rather than product-based. There are multiple threads to your work (or your book) and you don’t know how to pull them together.
  • You care deeply about your readers and want to inspire change.

If you’re writing a book:

  • You have either a wisp of an idea, a large body of work or material to draw on (think articles, webinars, podcasts), or a full manuscript that needs another pair of eyes.
  • You want step-by-step guidance on how to get the book out of your head and onto the page.
  • You’re open to honest and constructive feedback delivered with a dose of kindness and empathy, and always in service of the work.
  • You’re looking for accountability and a cheerleader to help you get the book done.
  • You’re looking for accountability and a cheerleader to help you get the book done.
  • You’re ready to do the work.
I am not the right coach or copywriter for you if:
  • You have a product-based business (such as an online or physical store)
  • Your book is a work of fiction. As much as I adore reading fiction, I don’t coach fiction writers.
  • Your book is a straight memoir. If your book combines your story with ‘how to’ or ‘self help’ knowledge, I can definitely help. But if it’s purely the story of your life, or you’re collating your memories for family only, then you’ll be best served by working with a specialist memoir coach.
  • Your book is purely a money making venture. I’m not here to help you get rich quick, beat the algorithms or master Amazon ads, I’m here to help you write the best book you can. A book that matters. A book you will be proud of.
  • You’re only looking for someone to smother your work in sunshine. I’m here to help you grow as a writer, so I’ll offer both praise and constructive feedback, always in service of the work.

It’s said that 80 percent of people want to write a book ‘someday’
