Life happens. When it does, will you be able to keep writing and publishing books?

In a series of short and easy to understand videos, the Writing in Hard Times course teaches writers the basic principles of disaster planning to help them survive hard times such as: recessions, pandemics, injuries, illness, natural disasters, and much more.

You’ll learn how to protect yourself, your family, your assets, and your books so that you can write no matter what life throws your way.

The Coronavirus pandemic was a wake-up call. A lot of us weren’t prepared…in any area of our lives, let alone the writing life.


This course will teach you how to harness the power of long-term thinking.

You’ll learn how to “see” the future so you can be ready for any threat as a writer.

You’ll make wise decisions about your future.

This course will ensure that you build a writing career that lasts for decades to come.


Almost no one in the writing space talks about “risk management for writers” (borrrring, right?!!!)

BUT…I’ve been talking about disaster and contingency planning for writers since 2016.

No one listened to me—until now.

I have written over 50 books of science fiction, fantasy, and nonfiction of authors, so I understand writers.

I also have over a decade in the insurance industry.

As a commercial claims adjuster, I helped thousands of people and businesses survive disasters that threatened their livelihoods.

As a commercial underwriter, I helped businesses predict disasters BEFORE THEY HAPPENED.

I have internationally-respected insurance degrees and I teach classes on risk management to insurance agents.

I know a thing or two about planning for future disasters—especially for writers.

Let me help you.


This isn’t the sexiest course you’ll buy as a writer, but it might be the only one that will save your career one day.
