WriterSpark Online Courses for Writers


WriterSpark is a platform offering courses, articles, and a podcast, all to help writers at any level learn and grow. It was born from a desire to pay it forward. I have spent nearly two decades in the publishing industry. Imagine what I’ve learned during that time. A. Lot. 

In my courses, I offer much of what I’ve learned to you in less than twenty years. My online courses will provide you with everything you need to write your novel, cozy mystery, or memoir. In essence, you get to skip the line. 

Invest in yourself. I’d love to be part of your journey.
