3 Biggest Mistakes Authors Make



I’m an author, publisher, and New York Times Bestselling ghostwriter living in the mountains of Southern California. It’s peaceful and inspiring. I do a lot of thinking up here above the clouds and my community is filled with creative people. Life is grand.  

I founded Writer to Writer in 1999. Writing has been my greatest pleasure since the age of 7. I began by writing poetry, and at the age of 11, I wrote what by today’s standards you might call a flash fiction story, Teena and the Wildcat. I’ll bet it’s still in the attic of the home I grew up in. My mother saved everything!

Fast forward to high school. While everyone else scrambled to fill their electives schedules with fun classes, I took more than the required number of English classes.

I soaked the department dry, running out of classes before I ran out of high school. So in my senior year, I proposed an independent study course to my favorite English teacher and spent the year writing a Gothic Romance. I never really finished writing it (sound familiar?) but I learned a lot and the experience set the pace for the rest of my life.

That was the end of my fiction days, for the time being anyway. My current focus is on self-development material and courses for writers. I also teach journaling, memoir writing, and self-publishing. I’ve published 12 anthologies, eight of them with the Golden Pen Writers Guild (2000), and two for the mountain communities where I make my home.

As a ghostwriter I’ve done massive amounts of research and pecked out 1000s of articles and a stack or two of non-fiction books. I write online articles and newsletters, and develop courses on a variety of topics.

What do I do in my spare time? I write, of course.

Long after you leave this earth, echoes of you will remain to frame your passage. Your book is your legacy.



“I am fortunate to have had Judith Cassis as my book coach, mentor, advisor, and editor for the past year. It has been a privilege for me to know her and to study under her tutelage. For someone like myself who is passionate about becoming a published author, I can think of no better counselor. She helps me reach deep within to draw out my finest writing, never letting me accept second best. At the same time she keeps me well grounded in the reality of today’s publishing world as it changes constantly under the ceaseless impact of social media.”
