I will help elevate you from just another writer with a good idea to an author who is finally holding a book in your hands.

In one-on-one sessions, I will help you find the structure that best serves your story, teach you how to write in a way that will resonate with your readers, help you through the doubt and despair inherent to the creative process, and provide the tough love and accountability that will get you to publication day. But the main benefit of our working together is that where right now you see just a dream, I can already see your book on the shelf.

I think in books. Let me help you get from inspiration to publication.

I spend all day every day working with writers, thinking about writing, reading things about writing, and writing my own stuff, and I see a lot of things I want to pass on — cautionary tales, best practices, smart tips, rants and exhortations. My Friday newsletter is where I do this. Sometimes I'll include special offers and early bird discounts, but there won't be a lot of that (and if there is too much for you, you can unsubscribe anytime with one click.) I respect your time and your inbox and know that mostly you just want to write a good book and sell it.  CLICK HERE see a sample of the newsletter and a thumbnail of The No Excuses Book Map.


"I cannot recommend Jennie more highly. Really, meeting Jennie and working with her has been life changing ( there is zero hyperbole in that statement). If you want to write a book you MUST work with her." —Tracey Cleantis, whose agent, Don Fehr or Trident Media Group recently sold her book The Other Side of Impossible to Hazeldon. Look for it in 2014.
