Who is Teresa LeYung-Ryan?

Her clients call her  Coach Teresa , because . . . through her workbook  Build Your Writer’s Platform & Fanbase In 22 Days : Attract Agents, Editors, Publishers, Readers, and Media Attention NOW  and one-on-one coaching or group coaching, she helps  fiction and nonfiction writers make their names synonymous with the issues they write about, before and after publication.

Teresa's expertise grew from her own experiences . . . Over a decade ago, when she discovered that articulating her platform-statement and being true to herself gave her confidence . . . she rewrote her query letter which hooked a New York agent . . . resulting in a contract with a big New York publisher for her first novel Love Made of Heart. Teresa was growing her fanbase before she was published.

After publication, her fanbase got bigger and bigger. So much so that Love Made of Heart is used in college composition classes and women's studies classes, available at public libraries, recommended by the CA School Library Association and the CA Reading Association, and is archived at the San Francisco History Center.

In 2012 Teresa received an award for her short play Answer Me Now which is the first piece in her "Talking To My Dead Mom Monologues".

Praise and Testimonials from Writers whom Coach Teresa has had the pleasure to work with:

"What a gift you are, Coach Teresa! You do such a fantastic job of coaching, interviewing and supporting writers. I treasure you for all you've done for me and other writers. Love, Carol A. Sheldon, author of A SLEUTH IN SAUSALITO"

"I call Coach Teresa LeYung-Ryan a woman of a thousand pictures. She helps writers of all genres create their "platform statements" and shows them how to broadcast (even in photo file names!) to attract agents, publishers, the media, and fans. Building your platform is especially crucial these days because so many talented writers are publishing and promoting their books, trying to compete with best-selling authors and celebrity authors. Even if you already have a huge fanbase, you still need a platform. Coach Teresa helps you re-establish yours." Rita Lakin, author of the seven Gladdy Gold mysteries.
