Overview

If your goal is to write & publish a book, but you’re overwhelmed and uncertain of the process… you’ve come to the right place. I’ve been exactly where you are right now. When I began my writing journey, I took a leap of faith, flew by the seat of my pants... and landed on my face. I made a lot of mistakes along the way but that’s okay because I learned so much from each one. It is because of these growth experiences, that I can help YOU on your journey. Whether you’ve just started writing your manuscript, or you’ve had one ready and waiting to go for years, SOMETHING has held you back. Now you can stop postponing your dream because help is HERE. As a traditionally & self-published author of over 20 books, plus countless articles, blogs and writer’s guides, AND having appeared on author panels, television, YouTube, radio and print, plus my own podcasts, I’ve learned quite a bit about the writing, publishing, and promoting process. Now I’m ready to share what I’ve learned with you.
