You have an idea, I have a strategy. Let’s write a book.
You have a vision that both scares and excites you.
You, AN AUTHOR of a damn good book?
Maybe you’re wondering if you have what it takes because
you’re a perfectionist…who procrastinates.
Sabotaging the creative process is the number one reason we don’t finish what we start, and why, if we do manage to finish, we’re not confident about what we produce.
But what if, instead of rejecting perfectionism and procrastination, we EMBRACE it for what it is…
an opportunity for you to stand in your strength (the end result of the book), and partner with a seasoned writer to get your message out into the world?
See below for details about your two primary options…
I know how it feels to chase your dream with little to no support in your corner. To battle with this thing call self-doubt, but being willing to give it all you got in spite of having a thousand other things to do.
I published my first book as a full-time senior in college. And a police dispatcher, brand new wife, and mother of two. I was busy, stressed, tired, broke, and had plenty of valid reasons to hold off. I couldn’t, however, because the dream wouldn’t shut up. Characters lived in my mind who grew more real everyday. Aspects of my story infused with theirs and clawed to be told. I only had it in me to write a couple sentences some nights, but those sentences added up to paragraphs, pages, chapters, then eventually a book.
The morning of my first day of law school, I concluded law wasn’t my thing. Storytelling was. So I didn’t show up. Instead, I enrolled in an MFA Writing program to further explore this thing called writing. I mentored middle school students who didn’t know they had stories in them until they got a pen and a nudge. I returned to my alma mater to teach writing workshops before venturing out and doing a few workshops on my own. Then I took an even bigger jump and decided to pursue my passion on a full-time basis.
Every experience is a story, and every story, in some aspect, is a confession. Confessing can be difficult, but it’s always liberating, and I’m addicted to experiences and stories that release something in me and further free me up inside.

how to explore and express their experiences through writing.Are you ready?
When she returns home to visit her dying mother, she’s reminded of everyone she’s wronged, including her neglected daughters. Losing her mother urges her to make peace with her past, but making money is easy; coming clean isn’t.
Can she face her fears and clear her conscience, or will she return to the ever-secretive underworld?
The struggle in getting back on her feet makes the choice a tough one, however. Doing the right thing grows even more complicated when she meets the last person she ever thought she would, causing everything she thinks she knows to be questioned once again.
