I’m Lani.

I’m a NYT bestselling author of 12 novels. An award-winning podcaster. An adjunct storytelling professor. A writing coach. And a trauma survivor.

I am also very, very foul. If you have problems with bad language, especially the word “fuck,” then thanks so much for coming by. It was great to meet you.

But you are not going to enjoy me.

Anyway. My last published book was in 2015. Since then, big trauma, and now I’m trying to get back into writing again.

This free newsletter includes a weekly digest of bite-sized writing prompts/inspiration. That will be sent on Wednesday.

The paid tier gets:

  • longer, more thoughtful letters on Saturdays. They will include my own writing, thoughts and advice on all aspects of being a writer as well as writing craft itself

  • a link to the podcast version, which will include all the free stuff and the paid letter read to you, by me.

Sounds fun, huh?
