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


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


A Southern hippiechick at heart, Molly Jo Realy is author of the romantic location mystery novel, NOLA, and creator of the Book Builder Binder. Also an editor and coach, she encourages people to embrace their unique talents to share their stories as only they can. Addicted to God, cats, tea, planners, and pens, in no particular order. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram for more fun!
