Jennifer Blanchard is a bestselling author, professional novelist, and a story coach who turns struggling novelists into writers of books that keep readers hooked from page one.
It took her 18 years to publish her debut novel because – Jennifer says – she fell victim to the belief that because she had read lots of stories it meant that she could also write one.
Jennifer has written fiction and non-fiction and has been featured on numerous high-profile online websites such as Huffington Post, CopyBlogger & ProBlogger.
In her most recent article – in Huffington Post – she explained why she had decided to write nine books by the end of the year in order to ramp up her author earnings.
