Sound familiar?

You want to build an amazing career as an author or illustrator, but you...

  • Feel overwhelmed by how to actually achieve it?
  • Suffer from "shiny object syndrome", or let perfectionism get the best of you
  • Constantly feel 'out of control' or at the mercy of the industry around you?
  • Don't know how to go about building a readership or platform that not only works for you, but feels authentic?
  • Know you want to stand out and be known for your work, but feel like you have no real strategy to do it?
  • Often feel like you're playing small, or not living up to the potential you want to reach?
  • Struggle with self doubt, imposter syndrome, and sometimes even sabotage your efforts to create OR share your work?
  • Feel drawn to an author or illustrator career, but struggle with making your dream a reality?
  • Feel jealous, resentful or intimidated by other creatives for their achievements?
  • Keep hearing that authors and illustrators can't really move the needle on their careers, so you don't know where to start?
  • Overthink, overwork, or downright avoid thinking about how to build your career or market yourself in a crowded industry?

Success is an inside job.

Whether you're a seasoned veteran of the industry, or a hopeful new writer, Epic Authors Academy will help you reach your next level - however that looks for you.

It's time to let go of what's holding you back.

We're done playing small.

As an author, illustrator, and success coach for creative women, I'm no stranger to these feelings and experiences.

I know what it's like to have something to say, but feel unable to create the impact and income you want with your creative work.

I know what it's like to fold up your dreams to accommodate the "reality" of the industry. But guess what: you get to create your reality.

I work with authors and illustrators to help them cultivate the Three Souls™ of Success - so they can support their careers from the inside out.

This means cultivating a mindset of success that will support their dreams instead of sabotaging them, unlocking the simplest, most effective way to build a thriving brand and audience, and mapping out a creative career that leverages their strengths for maximum impact, income, and creative intuition for the long run.

My innovative method combines science, soul, spirit, and strategy to give you real results, peace of mind, and all the creative energy to build a successful career.

These are the same methods that have allowed me to create a thriving, multi six-figure creative career, with books in nearly every format and category, from picture books, to novels, to graphic novels. 


Picture this. Imagine if you could:

  • Feel fully confident that your success wasn't just possible, but inevitable?
  • Own your unique skills and talents and build your creative career with ease?
  • Be so magnetic to your audience, that you could attract a thriving platform and readership at ANY stage of your career (even before your books release!)?
  • Create opportunities for yourself as you want or need them, without worrying about the industry - just by being yourself?
  • Do less but achieve more?
  • Step up and take your place as the incredible creative you are, and feel open and proud to do so, without any hesitations or doubts whatsoever?
  • Have a strategy for growing your career based on science and soul that not only works, but feels right for you?
  • Create compelling, successful work while avoiding burnout and overwhelm?
  • Truly ignore the things you can't control, and fully leverage the things you can for ultimate reach and success?


You might have heard that success in publishing is a game of luck.

Get ready to make your own luck.

How does it work?

Epic Authors Academy is my long-awaited and much requested program for authors and illustrators at any stage of their publishing journey. From unpublished writers to seasoned veterans, EAA is geared to help you reach your next level - however that looks like for you.

You'll receive weekly self-paced workshops and weekly live Q&A coaching calls to support your work as you explore your Three Souls of Success™, to help you build the creative career you deserve.

This is the ONLY way to work directly with me for the rest of 2021.

What do we cover?

My innovative Three Souls of Success™ method builds your capacity for success from the inside out, and is unlike any other program for creatives out there.

We combine inner work with outer strategy to help you build your foundations for success, take control of your platform and audience authentically, and build longterm mental, emotional, and business structures to support your growing career.

Over the 8 weeks, we will explore:

Your Inner Soul: A deep dive into your creative soul, to unlock your mindset for success. You have subconscious blocks to your success, and this module will help you heal them. This is the key work you've been missing that will open you up to your next level of success - no matter where you are on the journey. 

Your Outer Soul: Developing Your PRISM SOUL KEYS™ to Magnetize Yourself to Your Growing Audience, with my unique (and uber-effective) soul-centred method of marketing and branding. You'll leave with a new perspective on abundance, success, and your own self worth that will connect you directly to the right people and opportunities.

Your Connected Soul: Creating an adaptable, sustainable plan that will nurture and fuel you for all seasons of your creative career, with a focus on creative intuition, allowing, and self care. Say goodbye to overwhelm, burnout, resentment, and disempowerment for good!

These are the same tools, strategies, and mindset techniques that have helped me to:

  • publish 20+ books over seven years, in nearly all genres and categories
  • bring in multi-six figures consistently
  • build a thriving career where I can create my own opportunities, because my brand and marketing strategy do the work for me
  • create a balanced, laser-focused, and consistent creative lifestyle that brings me global impact
  • sell hundreds of thousands of books with zero travel and minimal marketing (even during a pandemic!)
  • not worry, stress, or burnout while doing it

This program will bring you 8-weeks of creative coaching, business strategy, and industry experience for the price of one.


Why should I join Epic Authors Academy?

You've taken craft courses. You might have even taken mindset or business courses. My work combines more than 20 years of creative self employment, 12 years of industry experience, my expertise as a scientist, and my years as an intuitive and creative coach to form a single, powerful experience that will transform your career, and how you see yourself as a creative. 

There is so much more to having a successful creative career than the work you create. 

Epic Authors Academy is equal parts business, marketing, energetics, branding, self care, and creative intuition all wrapped into one -- and it's specifically tailored to authors and illustrators in the children's book business.

You could spend the next ten years trying to stitch together a creative career that embodies some of these elements, but this unique program takes away the stress, frustration, and uncertainty, so you can begin building your career with confidence now.

All the Details

Epic Authors Academy is a self-paced program with live weekly Q&A support. 

You'll receive new modules each week, and the opportunity to join me for a call to discuss the week's content. These calls will be recorded and replays will be available instantly. 

You will also gain access to our dedicated private Facebook group, where you'll gain powerful support, guidance, and connections with like-minded creatives.

Epic Authors Academy begins July 12th, 2021, with weekly modules dropping for 8 weeks!
