Your Coach & Mentor

Melissa Frey

Hello! I'm Melissa Frey, an indie author and digital entrepreneur who helps struggling, stuck, or confused writers just like you become intuitive, aligned, and CONFIDENT authors. How? I use the concept of show vs. tell to help you transform your fiction writing and finally make progress on your manuscript. Basically, I'm here to inspire you to write your very best book!

I know just how difficult it can be to write 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 start unlocking the keys to finding balance in my writing — and I don't want it to take you that long. That's why I created the resources on Indie Author Learning: to help you become the confident author you were created to be!
