About the author

 A few fun facts about me


I'm a fiction addict and a non-fiction enthusiast.

I love learning from Robert McKee, Cathy Yardley, Donald Maass, Karl Iglesias, Blake Snyder, and too many other authors to name.

I have been known to stay up all night to finish a new novel, devouring first and then re-reading to analyze.

I love teaching others about ways to improve their own fiction because I too have learned from other writers.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling author who has fan girl moments at every writer's conference I attend. 

There's not a type of fiction that I don't love and study (except horror, if it's done really well it can scare the willies out of me and then I get nothing done for days! So I moderate my horror consumption).

I love being an author of both fiction and non-fiction work.

Love writing. Love talking about writing. Love sharing writing. And I love hearing from readers. Email me, anytime, and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

How to Learn a New Language in as Little as a Few Months – and Have a Boatload of Fun Doing It

Let me make a prediction.

I predict that many, many hundreds of people who will read this description will close this page in a few seconds.

“Learn a new language in a few months? Are you out of your mind?” they’ll say. “It’s just too good to be true.”

And they will go back to their old language learning methods.

You know which methods: toiling away at mind-numbing grammar exercises, learning words nobody uses, and, most importantly, never actually using your skills to communicate with another person.

If you’re still with me, I expect you to be different. You think there must be something better. After all, how could people master more than one foreign language in their lives if it usually takes a regular person several years just to learn the basics?

The answer is simple – in one way or another, they follow the methods I share in How to Learn Any Language in a Few Months While Enjoying Yourself. They not only learn up to ten times faster than other people, they also have a lot of fun while doing it.

How to Learn Any Language in a Few Months While Enjoying Yourself is for you if you want to learn:

- without this one thing, you’ll never learn a new language in just a few months. Learn what it is and how to apply it to your everyday life to practice your skills while doing your daily activities.

- a completely free way to get native speakers to proofread your writings (and even explain to you all of your mistakes). This one site alone can dramatically improve your writing skills.

- an extremely easy way to find a native speaker willing to help you learn her mother language. It’s almost like having a private tutor.

- the proper way to improve your listening skills while watching movies. Most people learning a foreign language do it the wrong way and it does nothing to improve their abilities.

- how to achieve more with less when learning languages. You don’t have to spend hours and hours cramming every single word and grammar rule. In fact, it works to your detriment. Learn what to do instead.

- 9 common mistakes to avoid when learning languages. Reading this chapter alone can save you years of ineffective studies – especially mistake #3, so common among language learners.

- a 5-step process to improve your reading skills. You can make your learning process much more enjoyable and effective by choosing the right things to read. Learn what these things are.

- a fun idea to learn how to write the way native speakers do. You too can learn the slang and phrases only native speakers use – and know the language better than many academic professors.

- how to dramatically improve your language skills when traveling. While it isn’t necessary to go abroad to learn a language, it’s a powerful way to cram a lot of learning into just a few days.

- 5 common challenges of language learners and how to deal with them. Learn how to get over the fear of communicating with native speakers. Discover how to find more time to learn and practice your skills. Read three tips on how to deal with discouragement.

If you’re ready to supercharge your progress and become fluent in a foreign language in as little as a few months, click the buy button.

Why kill yourself doing things the old, non-effective way, if you could make the process much easier and enjoy it more, too?

P.S. As a gift for buying my book, you’ll get a resource list with my favorite language learning sites.
