Dyan Burgess

Founder, Project Manager, Independent Publisher

In her work as Creative Director for Words From Daddys Mouth, she knows first-hand what it is like to pull the best bits of many and varied experiences into unique and passionate stories. As a country girl beginning life in rural Victoria and NSW, you can probably imagine the gorgeous surrounds, quirky people and outdoor adventures that dotted the landscape of her early years. A fascination with people and their vast potential followed her through a science degree in Brisbane, Australia, extending into two decades of banking and finance, travel adventures, family creation and business development. Beginning in the independent publishing industry can be daunting. Coming to understand the multiple facets of the publishing industry has been incredibly fascinating to Dyan. However, as a writer (and entrepreneur), these aspects can seem redundant (and boring) – and this can stop writers from achieving publication of a book. Dyan has always enjoyed collaborating to realise writers (and entrepreneur's) dreams. So whether you are interested in the technical aspects of publishing, or you simply want to write a book on your expertise, she can point you in the correct direction. Simply put Getting it Done.
