SPARKLE AND SHINE BRIGHTLY
IN THE WORLD.
Rachel's ability to customize her approach to meet us right where we are on our author's journey is truly commendable. With her guidance, our author brand and business now sparkle and are prominently

The Struggle Of
"Author Overwhelm" Is Real,
Do you feel OVERWHELMED AND ALONE on your author's journey?
Do you wish you had MORE GUIDANCE along the way?
Are you feeling confused by the dizzying array of publishing options?
Do you have an amazing book that's going to be published or has already been published but you're struggling to connect with your ideal readers?
Are you YEARNING for MENTORING and ADVICE?
Are you looking for MORE ACCOUNTABILITY, MENTORING,
Do you feel like there's a missing component to your professional success?
Well, you're not alone. You've come to the right place!
I've got ya covered!
I've Got Ya' Covered!
Helping you go from "stressed to blessed" on your author's journey!
As a fellow writer/author myself, I know how overwhelming the many roles are that you have to play on this creative journey. Your author brand is a business and many of us were ill-equipped for all that is needed to market ourselves in the world.
I created this business several years ago because I saw a niche that needed to be filled. I LOVE working with fellow creatives and seeing them achieve success and experience the joy they have when they can share their gifts and stories with the world.
I have a background in multiple fields (marketing and event promoting, graphic design, website design, photography branding, writing, publishing, teaching, and coaching). I've brought all of these skills together under this one magical umbrella so I can share what I've learned from these fields to help YOU and illuminate the path forward a little more brightly!
I help authors set their long-term and short-term goals and identify the areas where they need the greatest need for support along their author's journey. Together, we create a plan for success so that you and your stories can get out into the world and make the impact you've dreamt of!
I'm a part branding and marketing mentor, part coach, and part effervescent cheerleader! I'm a BIG FAN of celebrating your wins every step along the way!
Life is short and you were BORN TO SPARKLE!
I hope you can join me on this MAGICAL JOURNEY!

I can't sing the praises loudly enough for Rachel's branding work...
Rachel's work has stood the test of time in my brand and I'm so grateful to her
for coming into my world.
From the time I began working with Rachel, I have felt that I am sipping from a sparkling foundation of creativity. No matter what I need, [from designing my website to focusing my brand to editing my stories for submission to tutoring me on Instagram] I have learned that Rachel has the answer, the wisdom, the guidance and the technological expertise to assist me.
There's a spark of something magical that came about when Rachel came in to work with me. I think it's part of her coaching skills and energy, it gave me energy to see a path forward. [I’ve experienced] a180 degree shift of progress, of energy, of everything in my business now.”
Rachel has been an amazing cheerleader and an invaluable source of support on my journey. She helped get my book the attention it needed to take off....I love to write but speaking at an event felt so overwhelming and Rachel took me under her wing. She gave me the courage and structure thorough interviewing me and set up a plan to make my dream come true of getting my book out to help the people who need it. I am so grateful!"
Without [Rachel’s] guidance I wouldn’t have been brave enough to take the next steps along my author journey. Throughout this entire process of expanding my author platform, Rachel's been an intrepid and effervescent cheerleader in my corner. We make a powerful TEAM and I look forward to seeing what we will create in the future together.
