Christian White


It took Christian White over a decade to find ‘overnight success’. Before he became a screenwriter and an award-winning author with his bestselling novel, The Nowhere Child, he slogged away at his computer on nights and weekends, relying on a long list of unusual day jobs to supplement his writing habit. As a speaker he is honest and self-deprecating, as he explains how writing for the screen helped him write for the page, he reveals the importance of letting others read your work, and shares all the things he learned from Stephen King.
