I’m so glad you’re here. And since you are, I assume you have a dream to share your story and experiences, a powerful message you want to launch into the world, and a desire to write words that matter which will impact the lives of other people in positive ways. We all want to know that the pain or hardships we have endured have not only helped us grow personally and spiritually, but can now help other people grow as well.
Take Charge Of Your Destiny
Author Coaching Services
I am a seasoned, best-selling published author and have been passionate about writing for over 17 years. I am also passionate about helping seasoned or aspiring writers reach their goals, big and small, and feel truly blessed to celebrate all successes with them. If you’ve always dreamed of writing a book, want to improve on your writing skills, or discover how to break into the publishing industry, let’s work together to strive towards making your dreams come true.
I remember what it was like to have a dream to write and a calling on my heart to share my experiences to inspire others, yet have no idea how to get started, much less allow myself to imagine that being a published author could happen for me. I remember struggling with questions like:
Is there really a place for me in the world of writing?
Is there a place for my message in the literary market today?
Does my story really matter to anyone?
How can I find the courage to be open, vulnerable and transparent with my life story?
How do I turn my life’s story into a book people will want to read?
Is my writing even any good? How can I find out how to improve?
Hasn’t my book idea already been written about by hundreds of other authors?
Do I measure up to all the other writers and social media gurus in the world?
I don’t have a big platform, why would a publisher give me a chance?
How do I get an agent or publisher interested in working with me or consider looking at my proposal?
How do I know if I even have what it takes to be a published author?
I feel so confused about how to move forward, what should my next steps be?
If some or all of these questions sound all too familiar to you, I want to help ease your mind right now. It’s not as overwhelming as it all seems, and you can do this. And the best news?! You do not have to do it alone.
If you have a dream to write or get published … you’re longing to further your writing career … you need someone to brainstorm ideas with … you crave feedback and critiques on your writing so you’ll know how to improve … you’re struggling to write a solid book proposal … you need a mentor and a coach to help you grow in your craft and keep you inspired … you need someone to encourage you and help you have the confidence to believe in yourself and your talent … I'm your girl. Smiles. I would be honored to be a part of your journey and help you pursue and achieve your writing dreams.
Why Should You Work With Me?
Not only do I have over 17 years of experience as a writer, but I am a best selling author of seven books, have been a writer for Proverbs 31 Ministries for seventeen years and have reached millions of women around the world through daily devotions, and have also coached countless writers about crafting book proposals and writing manuscripts, many of whom got a contract and are now published authors!
Having been awarded my first book contract in 2011 by a mainstream Christian publisher, I’ve worked in the publishing industry for over 10 years and fully understand all the ins and outs, have lots of professional industry contacts and friends to connect you with, and also possess valuable insider knowledge to help you break your way into an industry that can seem impossible to breach.
Most importantly and above all else...
I love and enjoy working with writers and helping them achieve their writing dreams and learning to take charge of their own destinies and the legacy they want to leave. I consider it a privilege and a blessing to help writers see their words with new perspectives, craft their skills and learn to truly believe their story and their words matter. And I get so excited about celebrating with writers when they achieve one of the writing goals, whether it’s writing an incredible book proposal, polishing a chapter, completing a manuscript, getting a publishing contract or launching a book.

My experience working with Tracie has been incredible. Her seasoned editorial perspective and solid marketing instinct helped to shape my book idea into a fresh, compelling message that stood out to publishers. During our coaching sessions, Tracie offered a wealth of experience and insight that proved to be invaluable in securing a book contract with Leafwood Publishers. She was both professional and personable, providing a calming, steady presence alongside her expertise as I navigated the publishing world.

I had the blessing to be coached by Tracie in the Book Proposal Bootcamp through COMPEL, and the experience was life-changing for me! I was so grateful for Tracie’s encouragement, feedback, and seasoned advice in creating a proposal, writing a book, and navigating the Christian publishing world. Her experience and expertise helped shape my book proposal into what it is today, and I believe will be instrumental in realizing my writing dreams. I thank God for Tracie and the impact she has made on my life and journey of becoming a published author!”

Tracie is a caring, experienced, and supportive coach. She encourages you throughout your journey and asks thought-provoking questions that stretch you to bring out your best work. I would recommend Tracie as a coach, especially if you are in the beginning stages of your writing journey.
Author, Grief Coach, and Marketing Strategist
Investing in Tracie means you’ll receive quality guidance from an experienced professional who wants to contribute to your success as much as you do. I had the pleasure of receiving Tracie’s support as a writing coach during a Book Proposal Bootcamp course where she provided firm feedback, but delivered it with kindness and grace. Tracie is gentle and effective and her soft words helped me receive her advice and internalize the message, allowing me to dig deeper to another level of my writing. She asked probing questions full of substance, which always gave me food for thought. If you’re considering working with Tracie I say go for it!
Change Manager and aspiring Author
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Tracie as my writing coach! I had the privilege of receiving excellent advice and coaching when I was part of The Book Proposal Bootcamp. She was so attentive and accessible to us all as a group, but I personally felt like she was my private coach and mentor. Tracie was so detailed and helpful in all of her critiques of my writing. Mostly, I felt encouraged and as if she was cheering me on. I am so grateful to have had a coach who seemed to really care for me and my writing goals. I couldn’t have completed my book proposal without her. She was the best!

I had the privilege of having Tracie as a coach for 3 months and it was such a great experience. Besides her kindness and her genuine way of caring, she was so incredibly helpful. It was so encouraging when she would point out things that worked really well as well as suggest changes in order to make a better impact, of which I appreciated because they made me look at my work from a different perspective. She was nice and kind in her delivery of constructive criticism but didn’t hold back when you needed a little praise too 🙂 I felt I was in good hands knowing she herself has written several of her own successful book proposals and authored so many awesome books for women. I highly recommend Tracie and I look forward to working with her again in the future!
