The Author Awakening Adventure

The Author Awakening Adventure is our signature course in which I will teach you the six essential keys to becoming an author in a way that no other writing course does.


Your writing is a reflection of your consciousness at any given time, which is why this unique course teaches you all the craft you need, through the lens of consciousness. It’s wild.

Watch my video below and discover how to distinguish yourself from other wanna-be authors: 

Over the 8 weeks, I’m going to share my unique framework for turning writers and wanna-be authors into authors.

Every books begins with a dream

Where do you want to get?
And who do you need  to become to get there?
Let me guide you every step of the way to becoming  the author you were born to be.

What will you learn?

The core principles of craft every aspiring author needs to master (you probably know them already: techniques for writing fascinating characters; interesting storytelling structure, plot, setting, theme, pace and so on…)

But, hang on, you can learn the craft in any writing course. This knowledge won’t distinguish you from the millions of other wanna-be authors out there who also know the craft.
There’s no ‘magic’ in the craft.
So where is the magic?
I’ve been on the hunt for it and now that I’ve mentored hundreds of writers and written and published ten books, (some of which have been international and #1 Amazon bestsellers), I’ve found it.
And I’m going to show you how to invite it into your writing (and your life).
What you need is an advantage.
That advantage is exactly what I will teach you here.

The Elements of the Advantage

1. I teach you to identify and master the strengths to counter the six biggest problems aspiring authors face.
  • Let’s take self doubt as an example and let me show you how it undermines your ability to even learn the craft of writing.

  • What value would you get from knowing the difference between plot and structure if you truly believed that you had nothing of value to say?

  • I’ll show you how to conquer self doubt first, and then teach you the craft through the strength of a counter-mindset, a mindset that sets you up for success rather than failure.

2. I will share self-mastery tools to help you move beyond your blocks that keep you stuck;
3. You will save time because this course will shear years of research, reading, workshops and failed attempts off your life;
4. You will be imbued with the confidence that flows from self-awareness and self-mastery. And there’s no match for it when it comes to distinguishing yourself as a writer in the crowded marketplace of wannabe-authors.
