Develop and Build Your Story Worlds! Storyteller's Gambit Coaching

Juneta Key

"You are only powerless if you believe you are powerless."
~Jamie Fox, Robin Hood, 2008

I learned to read before I started kindergarten.  Books have been my friends, teacher, and source of grand adventures for long as I can remember.  

In the early 80's I developed a passion for learning the writing craft.  I took every course I could and read every craft book I could afford, still do.  

It is one of two writing vices I must guard against least I use it as an excuse to procrastinate.   

I am a novelist and short story writer, with a penchant for creating series because I see pattern and connection in everything. 

2020 saw the start of my coaching business for story development, world building and short story--plus a few side services.  

As of 09/11/2020 I have three open slots. Email me if you would like one.  They go fast.

Volume 1

Grumpy Old Gods

What happens when gods wane, retire, or just decide they need a change of employment?

13 writers took up the challenge and let their imaginations run wild in this anthology that is nearly-always amusing, somewhat insightful, and completely irreverent as we imagine the gods of yore in retirement.
