“You should write a book.”


How many times have you heard that comment?

How many times have you agreed?

How many times have you secretly wondered if it’s even possible?

While no one can write your book except you, that doesn’t mean help is not available.

I am here to walk beside you as you take your first, nerve-wracking steps toward publication.

Together, we can help you

No writer succeeds alone.

In fact, they don’t even try!

In God’s plan, we all need one another.

Writers lean on friends, family, editors, mentors, teachers, and fellow writers to keep themselves on track.

In our warm and welcoming writer's workshop, you will enjoy

  • Help and inspiration
  • Outside perspectives
  • Courage to move forward
  • Encouraging environment
  • Safe space to present new work
  • Professional development and guidance
  • Personalized mentorship
  • Publication pathways
  • Stylistic growth
  • Live Q&A’s
Yes! I Want This!

I know exactly how you feel.


I’m Ruth, your leader in the TELL YOUR STORY workshop.

Ten years ago, I was a full-time classroom teacher who liked to write on the side. I cherished a dream of publication but had no idea how to make my dream a reality.

My biggest hurdle was getting started.

I wasn’t sure how to complete a book, let alone take it to publication.

After spending thousands of dollars to attend conferences, take courses, and consult with experts, investing literally years of my life in alternating fits of frustration, flailing, and trial-and-error, I finally starting seeing reward for my efforts.

I’m the traditionally published author of seven books, four plays, countless articles, and more projects in the pipeline. I’m publishing at least one book a year, with no signs of slowing down.

I Want That, Too!

Once established in my field, I started getting S.O.S messages from friends and fellow writers, asking for help in achieving their own writing goals.

As I joined them on their journeys, I realized that my methods weren’t a fluke.

They could work for writers at all levels.

In my experience, here are a few fears that hold first-time authors back:


1. Fear of failure
2. Fear of commitment
3. Fear of vulnerability

If you’re feeling those things, let me reassure you.

You are totally normal! I still feel them every time I start a new project.

More than anything else, though, would-be authors tend to throw up their hands and say, “But I’m not really a writer!”

And guess what: you never will be until you start thinking of yourself as one.

Repeat after me:

“I am a writer, and I’m working on my first book.”

FIRST BOOK, HERE I COME

By the end of the workshop, you will have 

THREE CHAPTERS

of your book written, revised, and ready to share with early readers or attach to a book proposal!

You will also develop the skills you need to see the project through to completion.

You will be on your pathway to publication.
