At the 2006 San Francisco Writers Conference, Sally Watkins generated interest in her self-help book and after writing a 70 page proposal, found an agent who sold it to Adams Media who published it in 2009. Adams Media sold foreign rights for Mandarin, French, and Brazilian Portuguese editions before the publisher was bought by Simon and Schuster where you can find Change Your Mindset Not Your Man: Learn to Love What’s Right Instead of Trying to Fix What’s Wrong as an ebook. Sally became, through publishing, an editor, ghostwriter, and coach for other therapists with self-help projects.
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist since 1989, Sally supported her family and non-profit agencies with grant writing for ten years before she discovered creative writing through an online class. Social Work Today featured her article The Highly Prized Child. She also contributes articles to many blogs and speaks at meetings and workshops.
Since her agent retired, Sally is currently writing a proposal to find a new agent for her second book, a memoir about childhood wounding. She lives in Lincoln where she is active playing pickleball, bridge, gardening, and vegetarian cooking.
