Hi, I'm Janel.

I'm part editor and part fairy godmother.

I help women conquer fears, create simple plans, and take realistic steps to make their writing dreams come true.

I have writing dreams. Tell me more!

Improve Your Writing Today

Every writer starts with a spark of an idea and a dream, but only those who learn, grow, plan, adapt, and keep writing become successful. Discovering and implementing those steps on your own can be overwhelming. After years on both sides of the publishing desk, I have a unique perspective on women and words. I would love to tell you more. Join me?
