Do you dream of quitting your day job and writing full-time? You don't need to live in a dark place with only a candle for light and a mouse for a friend. In this episode of the Florida Writer Podcast, host Alison Nissen chats with Alyssa Berthiaume, who discovered she could earn a living writing! Listen to Alyssa's journey from frustrated creative to published author and discover some of the nuts and bolts she learned along the way, such as building a street team of marketers, book promotion, and working with an independent press. 

Alyssa Berthiaume is a mompreneur, author, ghostwriter, and writing guide with a superpower for hearing between the lines and capturing the voice of her clients. She's the Lady Boss Owner of The Write Place, Right Time, her virtual boutique of coaching and ghostwriting services for brilliant, brave, and badass womxn ready to change the ‘effin’ world with their stories. She’s also the author of Dear Universe, I Get it Now: Letters on the Art and Journey of Being Brave and Being Me. If you can catch her away from the keyboard, she's probably drinking Maple Lattes, watching The Princess Bride for the thousandth time, solving the latest Hunt-a-Killer case, or having fun with her partner and son.
