Austen Hempstead by profession, Austen is a sales trainer, running his own business and working across the UK providing training for sales teams with some of the country’s largest companies, to delivering 121 coaching for individuals.
But for many years his secret love has been rhyming poetry. He has written many poems, all originally just because he enjoyed doing so, never intending any of them to be for publication.
But throughout lockdown in 2020 his wife Janet told him that now that he had the time he should get a poetry book published and so with the help of independent publisher www.finalchapterltd.com that’s what he did with his debut book, Searching For Ooh. It’s aimed at children aged 2-6.
If you’d like a peek inside or you’d like to buy the book, here’s the link Shop | Final Chapter (finalchapterltd.com) or you can order it (as of 02/08/2021) via most book shops and Amazon.
