Greta Solomon is an author, creative writing coach and former journalist for British newspapers and magazines. She is a natural multi-passionate creative with a diverse career path.
After graduating in psychology from Warwick University, Greta started out as a journalist at women’s magazines in London, in the early 2000s. She worked at top-selling weekly, Woman, and freelanced for well-known publications including Now, My Weekly, Company, Daily Express, and BBC Good Homes. But although she was a successful journalist on the outside, she felt creatively blocked inside. So, Greta embarked on a journey of creative discovery. This saw her become a freelance travel writer, a published poet and songwriter, and a student of drama and lyrics.
Taking the lessons learned, she became an English tutor with a sold-out practice, and a director at a business-to-business PR consultancy. She then became a writing coach, trainer and international speaker. Her clients have included creatives, writers and tech start-ups through to the industry giants of Statoil, Wilhelmsen Ships Service and Schibsted Media Group.
Greta is the author of the book Just Write It! How to Develop Top-Class University Writing Skills. (McGraw-Hill, 2013). And her recent work has been published in The Huffington Post, Moon Magazine, The Numinous and The Introvert Effect. She speaks at leading industry events, such as Blogtacular and both hosts and appears on panel discussions.
Greta lives in South West London with her husband and daughter and continues to run creative writing workshops for bloggers and the business world in London, and beyond. She also coaches women to bring their own books to life.

With the contract signed, sealed and delivered – I can officially announce that Heart, Soul & Sass: Write Your Way to a Fully-Expressed Life will be published by Mango Media. They are a traditional independent publisher in Miami, in the US, that do things in a non-traditional way. They had me at that line!
In fact, after my pre-order campaign with Publishizer finished, I had interest from publishers in both the UK and the US. But after lots of Skype meetings it became clear that Mango was the winner in every aspect. While sales of mind-body-spirit books were up 13% in the UK last year, an amazing $800 million worth of self-help books were sold in the US in 2017 (73 per cent to women under the age of 45). But of course, the book will be available everywhere (likely from Spring 2019).
So, we did it! You were a crucial part of the process, and every single pre-order and message of support, helped to inch me closer to my goal. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.
I'll be back in touch nearer the time to check-in before I ship out the books.
