As an accomplished author, I have spent my time in the trenches writing a book, querying a book, and publishing a book. My mission is to help other writers become authors! 

With my background in Writing, Education, and Psychology, I am qualified to provide writers with guidance and mentorship through the writing process. I have worked with other successful writers in building their stories, organizing their manuscripts, and editing. 

As an acquisitions manager for a publishing company, I am qualified to assist writers in querying and actively seeking publication for their novels. I have spoken at writing conferences and book festivals on writing, editing, publishing, and marketing. 

I have a successful podcast that focuses on being a mother and writer. Check us out at Raising Pensacola

I am here to provide support to writers  whether it be through author coaching services, author events, or/and speaking engagements.

My Story

Post-college, I found myself in an unfilling career in mental health. Shifting gears, I started teaching at the elementary level. During this time, there was this gnawing sensation to write my story. Through my time in mental health and my education in psychology, I developed my first fiction novel, A LOST WOMAN. A raw and powerful novel about generational violence and abuse. 

In looking to publish my debut novel, I took to social media to find a literary agent. After one year in the querying trenches, I signed directly with an indie publisher. Through that experience, I learned all the things you should not do in publishing your book, including taking a go at self-publishing very quickly after publishing my debut novel. 

Over the last two years, I have been working in the publishing world full-time as an acquisitions manager for Indigo River Publishing. I have learned how it works, all the things you must do, and how to become a successful author. 

My goal is to share my knowledge with potential authors so that they don’t make the same mistakes I did. If you are interested in learning more about my author and publishing coaching services, contact me below! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your publishing journey.
