Introducing Author School


I’m excited to share some big news with you today.

Over the last 20+ years I’ve worked with writers to improve their craft, get their work noticed, and navigate the publishing life. From writers just starting out to best-selling authors with tremendous influence, I’ve partnered with people at every stage of the process. As many of you know, I’ve personally written hundreds of articles to help authors gain access to these insights.

It’s been my dream to combine all these information-packed articles into a comprehensive course any writer can take to help them go from dreaming to DOING. I’m excited to say that day has finally come with the launch of, and the first course, “Pen to Published.”

Click here to view the 8-week course.

Enrollment will close on April 22nd.

As a part of this 8-week course you will have access to the following:

  • 8 weeks of curriculum with worksheets
  • 8 live video workshops
  • Access to a closed Facebook group in which I will participate
  • Personalized critique for your query letter, or any two pages of your writing

I’m excited to partner with you on your writing journey! I designed the “Pen to Published” course to lay the foundation for you to succeed as an author. It takes the experience and knowledge I’ve gleaned through working with hundreds of authors, and connects it to you.

    Hi Rachelle–
    Stopping in to say hello! Can’t wait to start Author School, learn further steps toward getting published and dedicate time for some real writing. I never realized before how I enjoyed promoting my students art work in shows. Was so thrilled for them, and as an ACFW member I’ll enjoy promoting other authors on my new blog.

I love words.

I love books and publishing and talking incessantly about them.

I love authors and all the intricacies of managing a writing life.

I sell. I negotiate. I coach. I brainstorm.
