Have a great idea for a great novel but you just don’t know where to start?

Have you started writing only to run out of ideas?
Are you suffering from self-doubt and wonder things like: Am I good enough or smart enough to write a book?

Feel creatively stuck and don’t know how to move forward. Like something is holding you back?

Do you feel overwhelmed by all the information and craft books out there?

Have you spent years working on the same story, but still haven’t finished an entire first draft?

You worry that even if you do write a book, nobody will like it so why should you bother?

I get it. I’ve been there! And so have many other writers just like you. Even with the best intentions, most writers never end up finishing their drafts.

There’s a statistic that says 81% of adults want to write a book

but only 3% ever do.


That means that 97% of people who want to write a book never finish.

Why is that?

Without a clear, step-by-step process to follow, most writers get completely lost.

They end up trying to piece together all sorts of information from the internet, craft books, and conferences, to learn how to write a book, but they still can’t figure it out.

And this can be irreversibly crippling.

Trying to write a book (and failing) takes a significant amount of time and energy.

Some writers can spend years working on the same story, writing and re-writing the same chapters but never making any real progress toward a finished draft.

Most writers get frustrated, lose hope, and wind up feeling like they’re just “not good enough” to write a book.

And so they give up on their writing dreams altogether.

You don’t need to have a big following or a writing degree to share your stories. You don't even need 'Natural Talent'. I've worked with people in every stage of life, from different backgrounds and professions who felt called to write but just didn't know how.

I am here to be your personal coach and help you to not only finish your novel but to make it a BESTSELLER!


By the end of this program,

you will…


  • Have a proven roadmap that will show you how to take your idea and turn it into a finished manuscript.

  • Be confident and inspired to write when you sit down at your desk instead of overwhelmed, confused, and full of doubt.

  •  Have motivation and inspiration that will power you forward and allow you to achieve your goal of writing a fiction novel faster and easier than you would probably dare hope possible.

  • Know how to set the scene so that your readers can’t resist being drawn into your story.

  • Know how to create conflict and complications that will intrigue your readers and make it practically impossible for them to put your book down.

  • Know how to develop your story so that everything comes together to create the ultimate reader pleasing ending.

  • Know how to create characters that practically leap off the page and come to life.

  • Know how to craft realistic dialogue that will keep readers in the story and not take them out of it.

  • Know how to avoid mistakes other writers make that kill their stories and sabotage their earning potential.

  • Have a finished draft that you can be proud of.

This course will teach you how to confidently write a story you feel proud of without the crippling self-doubt, frustration, and overwhelm that stops most writers in their tracks. 


I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from coaching authors across all genres, and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program that not only teaches you the high-level theory behind writing a story that works, but how to EXECUTE what you’re learning, too. This program includes:

  • Step-by-step guidance on how to plan, outline, and write a high-quality first draft
  • 10 modules of material, each based on one of the essential components of a writer’s education.
  • Comprehensive video lessons, with audio recordings, slides, and transcripts so you can digest the material in the way that’s best for you.
  • Practical worksheets with each lesson, so you can absorb and understand what you learned.
  • Membership to a private course website so you can access all the materials anytime, anywhere.
  • Group discussion calls, so you can ask questions and connect with other writers in the course.

This digital course offers more than a traditional online learning experience; as well as watching video lectures, you’ll be given exercises to complete. You can also ask questions within the course portal at any time and my team and I will respond.
