Hi, I’m Kelly Eden, a writer and writing coach living on the edge of a rainforest in beautiful New Zealand with my family.

I started my writing journey over 12 years ago predominantly writing for parenting magazines, online publications, and newspapers, as well as a number of private clients: mentoring new writers, ghostwriting, and as a developmental editor.

If you’re a new writer, I’m passionate about helping you advance your skills. We each have a unique voice and story to share. If you want to get better at sharing it–join me!

I have a publication for new writers on Medium, Inspired Writer. I also send out a free weekly newsletter with tips, advice, and inspiration.

If you’re serious about boosting your writing skills, join me in The Creative Nonfiction Academy or attend The Personal Essay Course.

If you are serious about improving your skills, contact me about one-on-one mentoring. I’d be happy to hear what your writing goals are and to discuss how I can help.

You can also follow me at Medium here where I write a range of articles.


With a background in teaching, specialising in childhood disorders, behaviour and intervention, I am always searching the science and academic worlds for research-based, practical information to empower and support parents and children. I draw a lot of my information from the relatively new field of positive psychology and from neuroscience.

As a mum, step-mum, and ex-teacher, living on the beautiful West Coast of New Zealand, I have a particular passion to help single parents and have a number of resources to help you if you’re parenting through divorce or separation.

My aim is that you will find this blog a place where you can access positive tools to add to your parenting toolbelt, learn about yourself and your kids, and grab some easy tips on how to negotiate this whole tricky parenting thing!

You can also join me on Pinterest for more family activity and craft ideas.

So nice to have you here!

Kelly Eden
