How many books have you written?
Gosh, I've lost count because I've ghostwritten several books, so those books don't have my name on the covers and I tend to forget about them. But I think I've written 22 published books and my 23rd is due for release soon. I'm currently working on 2 more books right now. One is a novel, the other is a nonfiction book for freelance writers. I also have a cozy culinary mystery that I'm going to self-publish soon.
Besides being a writer’s coach, can you explain what other services you offer?
Well, I'm also a speaker and a writer, of course. I love to speak at writer's conferences and visit schools, bookstores, and libraries to talk about my books and/or writing for children or freelance writing. And I provide in-service training for teachers on a variety of topics.
I also often write for educational publishers. Sometimes I write books, other times I write testing materials or reading passages. I also write for small businesses — press releases, articles, create media kits, etc.. And I also do some editing and consulting.
As the Working Writer's Coach, I offer instructional materials - including teleclasses, e-courses, and audio files — to help people learn to write for publication and/or start their own freelance writing business.
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Well, for anyone reading this who wants to become a published author, I'd say, just start small. You don't have to change your entire life and write for hours and hours every day to become a published author. You just need to write on a consistent basis. Even 30 minutes a day adds up. If you only write one page a day, at the end of a year you'll have a book! So don't make excuses. You can become a writer if you really, really want to. Just get started! Then find the help you need to make sure the manuscript you're writing will be marketable!
