Anagrams, cryptograms, crossword puzzles, word searches. If it had to do with words and letters, I could spend hours. In bliss.
I loved words as a kid and reading was my favorite hobby. The longer the book, the better, and I easily went from one book to the next. With all that reading of different plots and characters, the transition to writing should have been simple.
But it wasn’t. My first novel was totally inspired—I only wrote when my mind overflowed with story. And it was a magnificent story. The best ever written. Or so I thought. It took over six novels and a number of years for me to learn that my writing wasn’t perfect and I couldn’t plot worth a darn. My storylines were weak, my characters pathetic, and there was nothing to intrigue the reader.
Something had to change.
I discovered the magic of writing classes and dedicated teachers. And I learned the secret of good writing—how to use conflict to ramp up the story and strengthen the character’s emotions. I wasn’t an overnight success. But once the proverbial light bulb went off, it was amazing. My writing had passion. It had soul. My readers loved it. And best of all, I understood how to translate my success into helping others achieve theirs.
We communicate from our hearts with our words. Words that have power. Words that have passion. I help authors overcome writers block, master correct grammar, create strong structure, and write with clarity and passion by blending the technicalities of writing with intuion, emotion, and heart. Over 20 years of experience working with authors spark my passion for helping them achieve their own unique message. I specialize in helping women move through their fears so they can put their passion into words and inspire others.
On the publishing side, I believe that becoming an author doesn't have to be difficult. The Partner Up! Book Program was established to help women entrepreneurs get published the easy way through collaborative books. Examples of these are
the The 28-Day Thought Diet and F.A.I.T.H. - Finding Answers in the Heart, Volumes I and II.
I look forward to sharing my love for words and my experience with writing. I can't wait to show you how to make your writing shine!
