As for me, I’ve been writing full-time for over 10 years. I’ve got more than 40+ books under my belt. During that time, I earned how to self-publish, edit, graphics, marketing, and so much more.

I’ll be honest. None of that other stuff matters if you don’t get the words down. The priority is helping you overcome your hurdles, so you finally write a book.

I’ve studied structure, theme, plotting, characters, and dialogue. We all have to start somewhere. I’m always looking to improve my writing craft skills, and hope to share some of what I’ve learned with you.

I’ve taken classes too numerous to mention though a few stand out above the others (example: Michael Hauge). I’ve read book after book, adapting and taking notes to advance my skills. I can’t wait to share some of the highlights with you.

As for writing books? Oh boy. I’ve got a massive collection. I can’t seem to stop buying them. If it offers a gold nugget of great information or a unique perspective on a topic, I’m hooked. You never know when a new idea will help unlock something for you.

One of my favorite writing books is by John Truby’s “Anatomy of Story” — check it out here.
