Self-Published Authors

Self Publishing Authors

Graham Cann was born in East Sussex in the UK and started writing short stories when he was around 8 years old and, such was his enthusiasm, that he sent off a small novel to Thomas Nelson Publishers in 1964. The Mystery at Holly Mansion was never published but a seed had been sown. He still has the rejection letter!

After attempting and failing to land a job in journalism, he settled down, married and moved north to Norfolk in search of ‘The Good Life’ setting up a smallholding with his wife, Jules, two sons and a menagerie of animals.

The writing gene that had lain dormant resurfaced much later in life when his Guide to Norfolk Pub Walks was published by Countryside Books. Since making the decision to self-publish future books, Graham has written 9 non-fiction books and is currently working on a cosy mystery novel.

His other passions are rambling, singing in a 5-piece band, James Bond films, and he has a secret craving for rum and raisin ice cream. He and his wife Jules manage Chas Cann Publishers, publishing their own books and helping other authors do the same.

I am the Marketing and Finance Director for our family run self-publishing business. My role involves spearheading marketing strategies, particularly on Amazon, where I promote books, including those authored by my husband.

I enjoy the opportunities that the business gives me to involve my passion for design, and channel my creative nature. I also find immense joy in offering support and guidance, helping other authors and indie publishers achieve their goals.

Christian has spent most of his adult like in the UK and has set up home there with his wife, three children and four dogs in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

His love for the natural world has been with him since he was a young boy but it is his love for dogs that has been instrumental in everything he has done since. He owes much of his success in the canine world to two wonderful mentors who have encouraged him and shaped his flourishing career and outstanding achievements.
