My name is Christina Yother. I am a former English teacher, indie author, editor, and writing coach. I have been involved in all aspects of writing and blogging for many years and recently launched a live course called Inspire to help aspiring writers complete the first draft of their novels. I also earned my Ph.D. by writing one of the first dissertations to explore how women build community through writing online. I have a passion for teaching and supporting writers and genuinely believe that the writing community is stronger when writers share ideas, resources, and fellowship with other creators.
Beyond that, I am an avid reader! I consume multiple books a week and have a genuine love for historical romance. I have a vast book collection that is truly testing the strength of my many bookshelves and I drink more coffee and Diet Coke than one person really should. I keep multiple books in my car and purse so that I’m never caught without something to read. And, I never hesitate to smell the pages of any book I read!
I know how difficult it is to take a simple idea and turn it into a polished manuscript. I’ve learned the ins and outs of indie publishing after choosing to leave traditional publishing. Accountability, scheduling, goals, and developmental struggles are just a few of the things I can help you with should you choose to work with me as a writing coach. I pride myself on honesty and hard work. And, I genuinely believe that investing in yourself as a writer is one of the best things you can do for your craft.
