Welcome, Hero!

What is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly System?

The butterfly begins life in a lowly state, as do we all. The transformation through which a butterfly goes does not CHANGE her nature. The transformation calls forth the true essence of what has been inside all the time so that she can fly free and live her true purpose in life.

As I worked with visionary entrepreneurs, I developed a system that is easy, playful, and full of life. This is the B.L.I.S.S. Butterfly Author Success System, based on that gorgeous fluttering creature of light, air and transformation.

Each letter of #bliss is a part of the butterfly. The B is the body, and the rest of the letters represent wings.

When you are rooted in your purpose and all aspects of your author journey are healthy and harmonious, your BLISS Butterfly will fly free.

When your butterfly is missing parts, you'll findit hard to turn your dreams into a reality.
  • B is for BEING on purpose. - looking inside to find your purpose 
  • L is for LIVING and leaving your LEGACY - writing your message.
  • I is for IMPRINTING your message into people's hearts and lives.- publishing (manifesting your message)
  • S is for SHARING your message with those who desire and need it - that's what book marketing really is!
  • S is for SERVING your audience.well - prospering you, your loved ones, and your beloved causes. The more you SERVE your audience, the more prosperity you have to spread! 

Random Facts about Me

Before getting into the "meat" of this profile, I thought you might like to know 3 random facts about me so you have a sense of who I am.

1) When I was young, my dad worked as a Master of Ceremonies at a club He got home very late, and I would go lie on the floor just inside the door so he could be the prince 5o awake Sleeping Beauty from the evil spell.

2)  I used to write Doctor Who fan fiction when I was in  high school.

3) As a child, I could never watch the 3 Stooges, because their violence toward each other made me cry. I still find aggression upsetting.

2 Things I LOVE to do that affect YOU!*

My favorite things to do are writing fiction and helping visionary, life-changing individuals turn their purpose and passion into published books.

As for fiction, I adore writing visionary fiction stories that stick with you long after you have finished reading. And be careful what you say and do, because I'm a keen observer and an attentive eavesdropper! You just might end up as a villain in my next novel!

Helping authors is such fun! I love hanging out with people who love stories and want to make a difference.

Who am I and how have I earned the right to guide you?

I am an author, speaker and mentor living in rural Missouri with my 2 cats inside and a couple of guinea hens outside. 
A contributor in 24 books, I am the author of several books of my own, including #1 Bestseller, Mover and Shaker, The Peace SeedPersonal and Global Transformation through StorytellingThe Instant VIP,  Instant Author Formula: 6 Simple Methods for How to Write a Book FAST!, My fiction books include, A Tasty Morsel and The Assassin and the Prince.
