Although I always loved reading and writing, I had no idea if I had the talent to become an author. I didn’t even know what writing success would look like if I achieved it. I knew no authors. I had no idea how they made a living. Instead, well-meaning advisors told me one couldn’t make a living as a writer.
That challenge more than any other fueled my passion to nurture the art and master the craft of excellent book writing. My original gauge for success was traditional publishing.
Then my agent shared an insight that spun my career in another direction. She said I did too much. My published works were so diverse she didn’t know how to market me.
What she saw as my limitation instead made me uniquely qualified to help you. Along with my years as an award-winning educator, my publishing successes in so many genres—through major, medium, small, and entrepreneurial publishers—gave me first-hand expertise to guide you to writing and publishing success.
Writing comes from the heart. Intuitively you record your ideas into a manuscript. Instinct drives this creative process.
Revision comes from the brain. Your mind rewrites and restructures your original draft to make your message clear to readers. Intellect guides this rebuilding process.
Your heart and mind ultimately work together to create a book. Your message reaches your intended readership through the publishing process.
