As part editor and part fairy godmother,
I show women how to transform lives by sharing their story.
For those of us who lived through hell, if we got out with our souls, we vividly remember the pain, suffering, and heartbreaking abandonment we felt as we looked for answers and comfort. But more than anything, we wouldn't wish what we went through on anyone else. And if we could help one other person avoid the pain we've known, we would. In a heartbeat.
With my own kind of bibbidi bobbidi boo, I show women how to sift through their experiences for lessons learned, discover the golden thread of their story, and use it to show others how to thrive in similar circumstances. But more importantly, I explain how telling your story can redeem the pain to build a life you love.
Are you ready to begin the next chapter of your story?
When I made a list. . .
. . . of things writers need to know, consider, or do to write well, connect with their readers, and thrive in everyday life, I came up with forty-two. FORTY-TWO!
As a longtime editor and author, I know there is a lot to learn to effectively tell your story - it’s not simply mastering grammar and throwing it on a blog somewhere. Until I counted, I didn’t realize how much. I won't shame you if you feel overwhelmed or like you're missing something. You might be!
With a bit of bibbidi bobbidi boo, I took those forty-two items, organized them into three pretty lists, created a video for each list to show you how to use it, and added a worksheet to help you know where to start. I call it The Writer's Checklist.

The Writer's Checklist: Practical Steps for Writers Embracing the Call to Share Their Story and Change Lives.
As a new writer, I was so afraid of rejection that I started my own magazine.
Years before I waved my fountain pen and dried tear-soaked pages, I was a scared new author caught in the transition taking place in the writing industry during the late 1990s. My life was a mess and it made me unsure I was good enough for traditional publication. Terrified of rejection by editors, I started my own online magazine. I ran headlong into uncharted digital publishing and never looked back.
Through the years, I’ve worked with almost 200 authors, edited at least a million words, participated as faculty at writers’ conferences, created courses, taught classes, privately coached, and personally written enough content to fill more than eight books. With my unique background, I found myself providing more coaching than editing at many critiques and editorial sessions. That's when I finally decided to combine my love of coaching and writing into working with women who love words as much as me.
Today, I help women embrace the events of their life as a fairy tale. I teach them to share their stories with confidence and grace. But more importantly, I work with them to create a life they love. Read more of my story → Go!
Writing is easy.
Telling your story takes some bibbidi bobbidi boo.
Several times a month I send out ideas, resources, and tips to help you transform your words into hope, discover your unique voice, embrace the calling of writer, step into next level faith, bring femininity to your vision, and create a life that feels a lot like Happily Ever After.
I call it JEWEL - Janel's Encouraging Wordful Expression Letter.
