A BUSINESSWOMAN from Deeside is raising money for charity through what will be the third book she has had published.

Founder and project manager Katherine Massey is set to publish 'SEEN 2' alongside 15 other inspiring women who are shaing their life stories.

All the royalties made from the book will go towards the Advanced Brighter Futures charity based in Wrexham.

In 2018, Katherine's first booked 'Living with Dolls' topped the charts - even knocking Fearne Cotton off the Amazon best-selling top spot.

'SEEN 1' was then launched in 2021 and became a best-seller in six categories on Kindle and paperback, raising over £1,000 for the Milestone Mums charity.

Now, the 46-year-old's latest work - SEEN 2 - is set to become available to pre-order on September 28 to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week.

All funds raised will be used to support counselling, group activities and group coaching at Advanced Brighter Futures.

Katherine said: "The charity is close to my heart because I too do suffer with my mental health and have felt very alone at times, especially during the lockdown.

"I wanted to set myself a challenge that would push me out of my comfort zone but, more importantly, my intention has been to highlight the incredible work of everyone at Advanced Brighter Futures.

"They are the true heroes who make a real difference to our local community."

For 'SEEN 2', Katherine popped a post on social media asking for 15 heart-led women to step forward and become fellow authors, to be seen and heard and inspire other women to speak out.

The group has just recently submitted their first drafts to the editor at TAUK, their chosen publishing team.

Katherine added: "As a business, our mission is to help women go from invisible to visible and to be seen as them no matter their past or their background.

"I would like to thank everyone who is helping in this book-writing process and helping raise awareness of the charity."
