Your Coach & Mentor

Melissa Frey

Hello! I'm Melissa Frey, an indie author, book editor, and writing coach who is here to help you write better books more quickly and easily!

I know just how difficult it can be to write, edit, publish, and market a book when no one's shown you how before. When I first started writing (over a decade ago!), I didn't have a clue where to start. It took me nearly ten years to figure out how to finally write and publish the books I knew I was created to write — and I don't want it to take you that long.

That's why I created the resources on my members site: to help you discover the stories you were created to tell and learn how to best share them with the world!
