Aussie Author & International Bestseller Jane Hinchey writes sexy, snarky, badass, paranormal romances and funny, witchy, paranormal cozy mysteries.
Living in the City of Churches (aka Adelaide, South Australia) with her man, two cats, and turtle, she would really prefer to live in a magical town where cooking could be done with a snap of her fingers, and her house would clean itself.
When she’s not in her writing cave she’s usually playing the Sims, Civilizations or something similar, binge-watching Netflix or upping the ante in the crazy cat lady stakes.
Okay, now that we’ve got the official Bio out of the way, let’s get real.
It took me 20 years to write my first book.
Not because I’m a slow writer, but because of fear. The stories that I was telling myself about not being enough.
I’d start. Then stop. I was my own worse critic. One minute I loved what I wrote, the next hated it and cringed at the thought of anyone ever reading it.
In a bid to satisfy my entrepreneurial heart I immersed myself in other endeavours. I started a pet sitting business, then sold it. I became a website designer and was AWESOME at it, but then fell out of love with it. In between times I’d take job after job, because you know, money. And I hated it all. I really just wanted to be a writer, an author, but I’d been telling myself the story that I couldn’t for so long that I believed it. I didn’t think it was possible.
Until one day I started writing. I stopped fighting. I stopped resisting. I stopped listening to all the reasons why I couldn’t…and let myself believe that maybe, just maybe…I could.
And THAT is why today I’m not only a published author, but I coach others who have a book dream but believe the story that they’re not enough.
What story are you telling yourself? About your book dream? About your business? What untruth have you believed for longer than you’d care to admit?
The new story I’m telling myself?
I wish I'd done this years ago!
If any of my story resonates with you, if you have a book dream that you’ve been busy denying, I can help. I’ve been there, done that. I know the highs. The lows. The fears.
Today I’ve published twenty novels, and I also coach and mentor aspiring writers to unleash the author within.
Is this THE year that you see your name on a book cover? It’s time. You can start the magic today. One word at a time.
