“I just want to thank you for all your hard work and help editing my book!  You made my job easier.  And thank you for all the little affirmative comments too, that was a boost!  It always helps when someone else points out confusing statements or stories so I can go back and reword them.”

Are you ready to stand out as a Christian writer?

Back in 2020, I received a very specific calling: “Call My writers.”

The verse 2 Corinthians 6:17 (NIV) also jumped out at me: “Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.”

No other instructions.

Just “Call my writers” and to be separate.

So, I started The Inkwell, my online writing community for Christian writers. And then I started the Ink and Impact podcast for Christian writers.

Along with those things, I also began to offer 1:1 Christian book coaching sessions. And I’m currently building Bookworthy Academy with my beta members.

So what does all that mean for YOU?

It means that my resources and services will help you write and self-publish a God-honoring book without compromising your values and beliefs along the way.


It means that you can boldly stand out as a Christian writer and confidently market your book.


And it means that you don’t have to figure everything out on your own.


Whether you’re just getting started or are stuck somewhere in the middle, I’m here to guide you through your author journey.
