At school, Matt Bird was placed in remedial English classes and left school education believing he was stupid. It wasn’t until he was in his 20’s when his mum suggested he may be dyslexic and should get tested. This was the first time Matt had even heard of the word ‘Dyslexia’ but the description started to make sense of the challenges he had faced when he was at school.
Since leaving school, with a little nudge from his friends, he started his book writing career and he has now authored 20 books, has won a book of the year prize and writes for publications such as The Times newspaper.
Wanting to share with people how he writes books and help them to achieve others’ dream of writing a book, Matt now coaches 100+ people a year to become authors and publishes 50+ books a year. Matt believes that if he can write a book, then so can everyone!
