Hi. I'm Shaun, an Artist who writes. Welcome to Go Build A Bridge.


We all experience fear. Like many I let fear hold me back, but one day things began to shift - you can read about that day here.


Sometimes you find the strength to stand when you realise you don't have to stand alone. Similarly, I believe you can find your voice, something that may have previously escaped you, when you use it to serve others.


I want to make a difference for kids who haven’t had the best start and for adults who struggle with the shame they carry from their childhood.


I posted the above picture on social media back in January 2016, declaring it the title for my book - an illustrated journey about finding strength and taking action - part memoir, part sharing other's stories.


That book has evolved into something quite different.


You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children. 

- Madeleine L'Engle


I created this blog to share my earlier book ideas and to help reach another goal of raising $10,000 for organisations committed to bringing an end to violence against children.
