Committee Members

Sacha Black

Boss and chief organiser

Sacha is the founder of the Bloggers Bash. She lives in Hertfordshire with her wife and son and has recently published her first fictional book, Keepers. Earlier in 2017 she also published, 13 Steps To Evil. Sacha blogs about the world of writing, publishing, and books and also runs a very successful weekly writing prompt. She lives to break the rules and spends a lot of her time writing. A night owl, she needs very little sleep.


Geoff Le Pard


Chief scout, venue finder and legal representative if anyone ends up arrested.

Geoff lives in London and, as well as writing, loves to bake and enjoys watching cricket. He has a wicked sense of humour and usually ends up bringing lots of home-baked cakes to the Bloggers Bash. Geoff’s blog covers a variety of subjects, including travel, flash fiction, family memories and humour. He’s been a member of the committee since the first year the event took place. He has published a number of books, the last of which is called Life In A Grain Of Sand.



Hugh Roberts

Chief Entertainer, paper chaser, and cameraman for the day.

Hugh lives in Swansea, South Wales, and enjoys frightening people with his short stories that all come with a twist. He lives with his civil partner and, when not writing, enjoys walking his two Cardigan Welsh Corgis. He’s been a member of the committee since the first year the event took place. He published his first collection of short stories, Glimpses, in December 2016. He blogs about a wide range of subjects including flash fiction, photography, music and blogging tips.


Graeme Cumming

Treasurer and keeper of the keys to the Bloggers Bash vaults.

Graeme Cumming is the author of Ravens Gathering, a horror/fantasy thriller and is currently working on a follow-up, Carrion. Reflecting his influences as a writer, he blogs nostalgically about TV shows and movies from his childhood and teens, his love of live music and his experiences on and in water. He lives in Robin Hood country, where many of his stories are set.



Helen Jones

Marketing, Sponsorship, and Bloggers Bash web site builder.

Helen Jones is an author, blogger and writer – basically, she loves working with words. After spending most of her life moving around the world, she now lives in Hertfordshire with her husband and daughter and spends her days telling stories. Helen has published a number of books, including The Ambeth Chronicles series.



Shelley Wilson

Bloggers Bash Communications Manager and tells the other committee members what to say at interviews.

Shelley divides her time between blogging and writing motivational non-fiction books for adults, and the fantasy worlds of her YA fiction. Her recent book is called Oath Breaker. She was born in Leeds but moved to the West Midlands when she was a youngster. She is a single mum to three teenagers, a fat goldfish and a crazy black cat called Luna. Her favourite things (apart from her children) are vampires, mythology, history, and pizza. Shelley is an avid reader and book blogger with a passion for Netflix binge-watching sessions.

Shelley can be found lurking on Twitter and Facebook all the time (she wishes to add procrastination to her favourite things list!)


Adam Dixon

Bloggers Bash (ABBA) Awards Coordinator (including counting the votes) and ensuring the right envelopes are handed out on the day.

Adam is a fiction addict. If he’s not lost within the pages of a novel he’s staining his fingers with ink as he attempts to create his own, and is longing for the day when his name sits proudly on the bookshelf. His blog is an extension of this ambition, and he’s constantly impressed with the fantastic work he comes across from others. Three things he’s gained from blogging: a sense of community, constant encouragement and several new online heroes!


Suzie Elliot

Bloggers Bash Social Media Manager and blog traffic director.

Suzie is a former teacher turned blogger and social media manager who devotes her time to helping bloggers grow their blogs and boost their traffic. She is the creator of the Twitter link-up and the Big Up Your Blog Facebook group. She lives in Birmingham with her husband – The Bloke – and her cat. She writes about anything and everything that takes her fancy but particularly loves creating self-help and motivational style posts.





          1. Definitely. I look forward to it already ? i hope this year’s bash goes all well for you. Are you thinking of hosting it in London again or will you be having it in different cities?

        1. Such a shame we have so many friends across the pond we wish we could meet. We’ve set up a hashtag and Facebook group though so that people can follow the shenanigans in the day if they want to ? lovely to meet you anyway ??

          1. Fingers crossed. We’re doing an awards ceremony too. There were nominations last week and voting starts tomorrow I’m assuming you found me via Chris – and he’s been nominated if you want to vote for him ?. It’s funny isn’t it cause I think although I’m a Brit most of my reads come from America!

  1. I am still hoping to come, but with a very ill Mother in law in Canada i am playing it by ear. I know it won’t help you with numbers but I’d really like to join you all. Sorry Sacha it’s the best I can do at the moment. ??

  2. One more reason I want to go across the pond. Looking forward to hearing about how it went. (Hopefully no legal aid will be warrented!) 😉
