“Writing is about grabbing the reader’s attention, and telling the story only you can tell. Embrace your personality and experiences, and let them flow into the characters you write, read, and live.

It’s not what I write that’s unique.
It’s how I write it.”


Nicknamed the Bohemian Hurricane, Molly Jo Realy is an award-winning writer, social media ninja, and author coach.

Using her force for good, she encourages and educates writers and readers alike to celebrate every day with their unique talents and gifts.

Recently rooted in South Carolina, she embraces life with her family, friends, cats, many good cups of coffee, and an addiction to pens.


Savor the journey.
