I'm an award-winning author of fiction and non-fiction books for adults, young adults and children.
Although the subject matter of each of my books is very different, the theme running through most of them is the same:
Daring to dream of something better - whether that be in life or love or both.
Here are a selection of my books with a dare to dream theme - you can find out more about them and read free samples over on my Amazon page, right here.
Do the phrases 'size zero', 'plastic surgery', 'celebrity culture' and 'WAG' make you cringe?
Have you had enough of being told how to look and behave?
Would you love the freedom and courage to reveal your true self to the world?
Are you ready to forget the fake and keep it real?

"It's time to unmask the real you. From body image, bullying and social media, to love, sex and more. Siobhan Curham helps young women forget the fake and keep it real in this inspirational and empowering book."
Being published by Faber & Faber, April 2015
“A sheer delight!” OK MAGAZINE.
“What does it mean to be in love? How do we move on? These and so many more questions are explored in this novel, which makes it perfect for adults and young adults alike. Siobhan’s writing fast becomes addictive. I never wanted to stop reading and I lost myself in Caitlin’s world. This book is one of my favourites and always will be.”
“It’s back to the eighties with this hilarious and poignant take of the path we choose to walk and what could have been, had we taken another route in our teens.”
“I have read this book over ten times . . . I always fall in love with the characters, laugh out loud and end up in tears towards the end. Hands down the best book I have ever read.”
“I don’t know of any other writer who mixes comedy and tragedy so effortlessly. I was laughing on one page and crying a few pages later. Far deeper than ‘chick lit’.”
“I smiled, laughed and cried . . . You should read this if you’re having an identity crisis because it will make you remember who you truly are.”
“This book starts as it means to go on, so make sure you have plenty of time because when you begin to read it, you cannot put it down.”
“My teenage years came flooding back. I am buying this book for my best friend of over thirty years as the eighties were our stomping ground too.”
“Nice twist at the end. I did not see that coming!”
'This is First Wives territory, no frivolous bit of amusement but a tale with learning, coping, changing and making a stand very much at its centre. It’s good. Curham’s novel is hilarious in parts, but thought-provoking and emotional in others.' THE BOOKSELLER. 'Curham’s uproarious tale of a group of women who refuse to come second place to the beautiful game is a sassy, modern tale of revenge.' COSMOPOLITAN ‘This amusing tale of four women being driven mad by their partners’ obsession with football and taking their revenge in a variety of ways is irresistible.' MARIE CLAIRE 'Girlie fun guaranteed to see off any World Cup fatigue' COMPANY 'Siobhan Curham tells the tale in a funny, often moving and sharply accurate style, weaving together our prejudices (both male and female) into an entertaining read.' BOLTON EVENING NEWS 'A great story of four very different women who challenge their football obsessed partners. It doesn’t need World Cup fever to make this story applicable. Totally hilarious and thoughtful too.' THE NORTH WALES CHRONICLE 'Perfect beach read for anyone who feels deprived of their favourite sitcom on holiday' IRMA KURTZ, THE GOOD BOOK GUIDE
Finding Your Inner Cherokee is a FREE e-book for anyone who has been or is being bullied. Crammed full of case studies, interactive exercises, tips and advice, I was inspired to write it following the publication of my novel Finding Cherokee Brown (also about bullying).
Receiving emails from readers telling me how the novel had helped them deal with bullying in their own lives, really inspired me to want to do more.
It is available on Amazon and other e-book retailers and you can download it here for FREE.
'A very empowering and inspiring book, which is written from Siobhan's first hand experience.

'Finding Your Inner Cherokee is not 'just another of those beat-bullying guides', instead it's a breath of fresh air.

Read this book, because not only will you know yourself better than you did before, but you will put it down with a new sense of confidence and self-assurance. This book will make a difference.' A Day-Dreamer's World
