Connor Whiteley

Biography

Hello, I'm Connor Whiteley, I am an 18-year-old who loves to write creatively, and I wrote my Brownsea trilogy when I was 14 years old after I went to Brownsea Island on a scout camp. At the camp, I started to think about how all the broken tiles and pottery got there and somehow a trilogy got created.
Moreover, I love writing fantasy and sci-fi novels because you’re only limited by your imagination.
In addition, I'm was an Explorer Scout and I love camping, sailing and other outdoor activities as well as cooking.
Furthermore, I do quite a bit of charity work as well. For example: in early 2018 I was a part of a youth panel which was involved in creating a report with research to try and get government funding for organised youth groups and through this panel. I was invited to Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party and how some of us got in the royal photograph.
Finally, I am going to university and I hope to get my doctorate in clinical psychology in a few years.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
I read many different things for pleasure but I do love warhammer 40,000 fiction because I love the stories and the lore of the warhammer universe. As it's such a rich and interesting universe. Mainly because there's so much plotting, war and interesting story arcs that draw on the constant on-going storylines of the universe.
In fact, the warhammer universe inspired me in part with my Garro Trilogy that I should be publishing in August 2019. If you like warhammer 40,000 I would defiantly give it a read.

Furthermore, I read from time to time some psychology books as I like learning more about human behaviour as I'm going to university to study it.
Describe your desk
I don't really have a desk as such but when I'm working on the marketing side of the book world. I type up a mass to do that details my entire marketing campaign and I fight my way through the list. For this marketing campaign when I'm promoting the second half of my An Introductory Series I believe I have about 100 things to do.
Then for the writing side of life, I sit down with my laptop, YouTube watch later list and my story plan; a rough outline of each chapter; and I listen to music and let the stories flow out.
You can see my blog were I write about my books and writing as well as marketing advice here: https://www.connorwhiteley.net/books
