Bridget’s New York Times Bestseller "The Witness Wore Red" tells the astonishing life story of Rebecca Musser, whose testimony brought down the insidious organized crime ring of the FLDS church. Bridget also wrote national bestselling "Shattered Silence, the Untold Story of a Serial Killer’s Daughter" with Melissa G.

“I knew that I had a powerful story and a great idea for a book, but as an 8th grade dropout, I didn't know if I could spell, much less write my own book... I was shown a path and a blueprint on how to create my book from start to finish!

The one on one time with Bridget alone was worth the cost and now with the tools and education I received, I can now write as many books as I want with the same blueprint!"  

~ Travis Jessop, Student

The Most Important Thing to us:

We want your book done.

You want it high quality, but perfection is poison! Don’t be afraid to fail...or to succeed greatly! You’ll be amazed at how much valuable content you can produce in this process.

Bridget’s Mentorship Program is the best money our family ever invested!
(My husband even agrees.)

Bridget is a heart and soul coach. When you work with her as a writer, you can count on her to listen compassionately, attentively, and with a keen ear to your needs, passions, and intentions. 

In the program she offers some amazing WICKED TOOLS to assist you in breaking the writing process down into smaller manageable parts so that writing your book feels doable and even delightful. Writers can change the world, and Bridget is there each step of the way to assist you in making the process easier and to cheer you on!"

 ~ Marie Wallace, The Romance Cookbook and other works  

Working with Bridget gave me depth and clarity I would not have otherwise had. She inspired me to write from the heart, while engaging all my senses, which made all the difference."

~Jeffrey Olsen, Author of I Knew Their Hearts & Beyond Mile Marker 80


What experience do I need to have to participate? No experience necessary, and all are welcome to attend: aspiring, published, or hobbyist. We cater to beginners through advanced writers. Our course concentrates on becoming published authors and launching your career in a remarkable way. However, hobbyists will receive so much value for their journey—and you will be greatly informed if you ever decide to take your hobby into the pro realm! Anyone can write, and we help you take what skills you have and awaken the most glorious writer, communicator, and leader within.

What if I only have an idea and not a full book outline yet? Perfect! We work on that here – your beginning, your ending, and sorting out all of the mess in the middle.  

What if I am almost through with my manuscript? Perfect! We have had authors who were so grateful they participated in this program before they published. Their feedback has been that their books have become deeper, juicier, and much more powerful than they would have been—plus they learned how specifically they wanted to publish and how to get there.  

How much time do I need to dedicate to take care of homework? Plan on doing some homework both on Friday and Saturday of this live class. The amount of effort you put in is commensurate with the amount of results you'll receive.

What if I have no clue how I'm going to publish? Perfect! We plan to share latest trends on your genre so you know exactly which direction may work best for you. You will have your own preference for that decision based on you, your book, your needs, your career, and your desires.

Where do your writers come from? All over the world! From New York, Atlanta, Vegas, Seattle and LA, we've had people from all walks of life from across the U.S. join us. We've also worked with authors in Canada, Australia, Africa, India and Europe!

I understand your specialty is non-fiction. What if my book is fiction?
Ooh, good question. First, there is some really intensive work we do with you as a writer, regardless of the genre. Second of all, you will learn so much throught the art of storytelling portions of this class that will enhance everything you are doing - characters, scenes, plots and world-building.

What is your refund policy? Honestly, this is such an infrequent occurrence for us! We rarely deal with this question. However, if you decide not to participate in the Event, you may request a refund before Friday's Session by emailing We are unable to provide refunds after Friday's Session.
