Pen to Published was created by two women, with the combined collective wisdom of almost one hundred years of leadership, entrepreneurship, and communications success.


We are business owners, mothers, grandmothers, wives, friends, volunteers, and disruptors for good!

We are multi-published authors. 


We understand the extra demands of personal, professional, and relationship responsibilities of today’s woman.


We created Pen to Published to help you achieve your goal of being a respected author while keeping all your other plates spinning.


The Pen to Published™ method was designed
by Women for Women.


It’s straightforward, it’s comprehensive, it’s fun.


It’s a ‘Get It Done Well’ process with honesty, accountability, and realistic timelines.


Pen to Published is rich with content and expertise and the program is yours to use over and over, as you write the books the world is waiting for!


Lydia Yadi, commissioning editor, Penguin Business wrote on March 5, 2020:

"Nielsen Bookscan data shows that in 2019 only three of the Business Category Top 50 books were written by women . . .  There were five in 2018.

So why aren’t there more female writers in the business space?

The publishing industry needs to get better at finding academics, experts, entrepreneurs and change-makers who will explore broad business subjects that appeal to all readers, no matter the gender.”


YOU are the expert, the change-maker, the inspiration that can narrow the gender gap in the knowledge world.

We want to help you make that change!

And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
