As an author coach, business strategist, and Christian entrepreneur; I’m on a mission to you reach more people with your message.  I believe every person has God-given gifts and abilities to impact the world.  Therefore, I encourage you to let your light SHINE!

I was first paid for my writing in fifth grade after winning a nonfiction writing contest. Little did I know I would resign from my 12-year career as a Physical Therapist over 20 years later to write and coach authors full time. I am the owner of Author Audience Academy and TrainingAuthors.com with a passion to help authors succeed in writing, publishing, and marketing their books.  You can read more of my story here.

Thousands of authors have been coached through my books, training programs, online events, seminars, and more. I have over a decade of experience speaking to groups of all sizes; from small workshops to keynote presentations in front of thousands. And I teach from personal experience, not theory. I have been writing and publishing books since 2008 and have personally authored over 35 books including print, eBook and audio book formats.
