Writers Launch Pad

I’m excited to be speaking at the Moreno Valley Writers Launch Pad this year. The last 12 months have been a fast and furious ride to becoming a published author and I’m thrilled that I get to share that journey with up-and-coming writers and hopefully inspire them and give them some ideas for how to move their writing careers forward.

To save paper and waste, I’ve created this ‘resources’ page with links to all the information I’m sharing at the Launch Pad. Feel free to download and look through the presentation (PDF) and use any of the resources on this page.
