There are thousands of self-published authors earning $$$$$ from their stories.

Why not you??

Stop wasting countless hours with internet searches and "how-to" forums about the ins and outs of self-publishing. Quit wondering how "she did it" and why you haven't been able to finish your draft. No more putting it off.


Self-publishing is a LOT. Like a whole lot. 

It's nearly impossible to learn everything and sometimes that can paralyze us with fear.

Fear that we'll do it wrong. 

Or we'll fail.

Or we won't reach our goal or dream of becoming a full time fiction author.

Because who has time to spend writing when there's so much to research and learn constantly?

Learning "how to" be a published author is a full time job all by itself!

That's where I come in.

I've been a full time published author for over TEN YEARS.

FOR A FULL DECADE, I have earned enough income to pay my bills--and then some! All from writing fiction books and self-publishing them myself.

And I get really excited to share how I do it with other people.

I do a lot of private coaching and I really love it,

but I can only help so many people in a day that way.

So, I've created Self-Publishing Academy.

A group course that gives you all the same priceless content--resources, best practices, business strategies--and combines it with direct attention to exactly where you are and what you need.

It's the best combination of a private tutor and a Masters program for authors!

Could you learn all of this on your own with Google's help? 


But here's the thing about the "information age" we live in:

you can either spend time or money to learn this.

The choice is yours.

If you want to take the time to research it all for yourself (a process that's taken me 10 years) go for it. 

But if you want to save yourself some time, 

the most precious resource we have,

let me help!


I've published more than 40 fiction books & 2 non-fiction

I earn full time income from my writing

I've had a series optioned for television

I've taught and coached authors for 5+ years

I am STILL a writer first, so you're learning from someone who's still implementing these strategies daily!
