Meet our Number 1 Bestselling Author & Publisher Winsome Duncan.

Winsome Duncan has more than 15 years of experience in the book publishing industry and is one woman with a HUGE vision of getting her wider community writing books. As an author of 16 books, which includes her recent Amazon number 1 smash hit, 'The Popcorn House', Winsome works tirelessly with budding Authors and Entrepreneurs to help them realise their book-writing dreams. She is the CEO of publishing house, 'Peaches Publications' and not-for-profit social enterprise, the 'Look Like Me Book Challenge', which has a particular focus on stories and voices from the Black community, including  children age 7 – 18 years old. 

‘Look Like Me Book Challenge’ represents a ground-breaking campaign, which was borne from a project supporting 30 Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) children to write one collective community book. Since the Guardian newspaper published that a mere 5% of BAME main characters are in children's books within the UK, compared to 33.5% of BAME school children in education, Winsome has been on a tireless quest for change. Indeed, this is compounded by the shocking fact that inanimate objects are more likely to feature in children’s books than black or brown faces! 

Winsome is passionate about changing this narrative and began fund-raising on her birthday weekend of October 2019, for £50,000 to help raise awareness and educate others about the importance of having equal visual representation for multicultural children from diverse heritage.
