Do you want to be a writer, but don't know where to start?
Do you want to learn the steps to getting published?
Do you hope to see your novel or book in bookstores or on Amazon?
Then you've come to the right place.
This isn't some compilation of textbook resources I put together to make a buck on the Internet. This is me, standing in front of a whiteboard or sitting at my computer, recording a series of original talks from my experience and education, exclusively for serious creatives like you--writers who want to be the best they can be.
I started out from scratch, without anything published, without any formal training, without even any ideas!
Since then, I’ve attended numerous writer’s conferences, received my Masters of Fine Arts in Writing for Children from the prestigious Vermont College, and had more than 40 published books--including successful middle grade novel series, ghostwritten articles and books, direct mail letters and marketing pieces, short story books, board books, comics and activities, curriculum, radio scripts, children’s movies and more.
But the road from there to here was filled with a lot of trial and error--a self-driven school of hard knocks. At times, I’ve made a fool of myself, receiving rejection after rejection, and at times I’ve won prestigious awards and been flown to large publishing companies to help develop their next product line. I learned something from every experience, good and bad--and now you can, too.
In Writing Momentum, I’ll share everything with you that I wish I had known when I started out--so you can start light years ahead of the competition.
I’m not going to lie to you: This is no magic formula. It will still take the sweat of all your creativity and hard work--but instead of spinning your wheels, you’ll have the tools and knowledge you need to create the best manuscripts possible, time and again.
This is not a series of lectures or a course based on writing theory filled with ten dollar words. If you want that, there are plenty of books on how to write available at your local bookstore. I'm not trying to reinvent that wheel. Instead, I'm giving you a series of honest, straight-forward talks and tips, sharing with you what I've learned over the course of my career.
We live in a global marketplace. There’s room for all of us to succeed--and that’s one thing you’ll discover early on in this course: There are MANY more types of writing opportunities than you have ever imagined. We’ll look at several of them in-depth, so you can start submitting your work to publishers right away.
Learn from decades of successful, real-world techniques so you become a better writer--faster than ever.
Learning isn't a one-way street. Ask questions and we'll do our best to help you find the answers you need.

Will it be easy? No--it takes a lot of work, devotion and heart. Most of us get into freelance writing because we have a passion for impacting people's lives. But you can do it. I’ve made a living doing it. Some years you might make six-figures doing it! But regardless, one thing is certain: We all need help getting there. And that’s what Writing Momentum is all about.
Many writers have paid more than $1000 to attend a writer’s conference and take just a few of these sessions, but now YOU can enjoy them ALL (and many I've never taught in a conference before) for a fraction of that cost--thanks to the Internet.
Think about it: How much would you spend for more HOURS of mentored teaching from a writing professional--that you can experience again and again?
