Why I do it
A Jacqueline of all trades
and a mistress of some…
my primary goals are
teacHing. It's my Superpower.
My love of the written word moved me to not only pursue an MFA in Creative Writing (fiction) nearly 13 years ago, but it also pushed me to take on the tasks of editor and writing mentor. Since then, I have helped 100s of writers develop their writing craft through my editing services, articles, and online projects, like Writer’s Boot Camp. The result, which I love, is seeing my clients and students excited to write that phenomenal next book.
We are all creative; we just have to tap into our innate creativity. Allowing ourselves to express our creativity makes us better able to see ourselves and others.
I am committed to helping you express yourself using the power of words. We all have a story to tell, and there are readers out there waiting to read

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Shonell for a little over ten years. In that decade, we have worked together on countless books as well as the movie adaptation of one of my books.
One of the reasons I work with Shonell time and time again is her dedication to her work and the thought and care she puts into everything. She has also become a dear friend to me. I’m lucky and blessed to have her in my life.”Liz DeJesus | Author, Creative Workshop Developer/Moderator
