About Me

I Am…

  • A reader, writer, teacher, and passionate student of life

  • A lover of ideas, creativity, humor, and my sword-fighting husband

  • A fan of chocolate, ranch dressing, steak, steamed broccoli, bacon, and ice cream (not all together–although if you buy my books…)

I Believe…

  • Writing should be fun

  • Everyone is capable of creativity

  • Hard concepts NEVER have to be boring

I Give

  • Quirky, practical writing advice, resources, and worksheets

  • A new spin on your writing journey as play, not drudgery

  • Opportunities to work with me and take your book to market!

I Hope…

  • You take more risks and have more fun with your writing

  • You understand the significance and purpose behind every written word

  • You give 100% of your best work to readers (or leave book reviews for hungry writers!)

I Also…

  • Am the Fearless Leader and Editor-in-Chief at Uncommon Universes Press, committed to publishing books with fresh world-building, outcast characters, intense themes, and high stakes

  • Edit, coach, and teach professionally, working with fiction and nonfiction clients

  • Love connecting with, supporting, and promoting other writers, readers, and explorers, so get it in touch on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using the handy links on the right sidebar.

  • Have a shiny, infrequent-but-always-helpful newsletter–sign up for exclusives!

Official Bio

Janeen Ippolito is two authors for the price of one! She creates writing resources and writes speculative fiction with monsters, misfits, and mushy stuff. She’s also an experienced author coach, editor, teacher, and the Fearless Leader (president) of Uncommon Universes Press. In her spare time, she enjoys sword-fighting, reading, geeky TV, and brownie batter. A lifelong misfit, she believes different is beautiful and that everyone has the ability to tell their story. Two of her goals are eating fried tarantulas and traveling to Antarctica. This extroverted writer loves getting connected, so find her on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and at her two websites: janeenippolito.com and writeinsideout.com
