"If there is a book that you want to read but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it."

                                                           Toni Morrison

    Dreams can come true!

Have you always wanted to be an author? Do you have a book already written, but you don't know what to do with it? I am here to help you! There is nothing like the feeling of holding your own words in book form, and it is a feeling that I want to pass on to you. I have a heart for new authors and offer the opportunity to walk you through the process step by step. If you are only  in need of an editor, I can help you with that as well! Let's get that book done!

YOU have something

to offer!


I am in the business of helping others achieve their dreams of becoming authors. I provide one-on-one instruction as a book coach. Distance is not a problem in today's age with the help of social media. I also help provide opportunities for writers through events that I and three other authors facilitate through the Idaho Creative Authors Network (ICAN).I want others to understand that everyone has a story to write no matter how old you are!

"I knew I had a story to tell, but had no idea where to start. I really cannot express the tremendous talent, knowledge, and encouragement that JoEllen provided without writing a whole book about her. It would be like trying to describe the works of a true artist with just an emoji! She was amazing every step of the way! I could never have become a published author without the exceptional guidance from JoEllen. She made the whole journey so exciting." Tracey Olson Mason

"I started working with JoEllen Claypool in the most serendipitous way. I reached out to her while promoting another Idaho author and ended up partnering with her on my own book, Heart Appreciation: Stories of Gratitude. As a newbie to the world of self-publishing, I couldn't have found a better editor to help me from A to Z. As I write this, my paperback and Kindle e-book are on Amazon's website because of the collaboration I had with JoEllen. She is patient, thorough, professional, and truly cares about your success. The biggest compliment to her or to anyone who does what she does is to be a repeat client - and that's exactly what I plan to do with my next book."  Chuck Trunks

JoEllen Claypool

"I felt as though JoEllen could see exactly what I was feeling and wrote her book just for me." 



I received professional advice, instruction, and encouragement to resurrect my dream and see it in completed form. JoEllen is a top-notch book coach and editor


I can't imagine working with a better editor.


"JoEllen, our book coach and encourager. She encouraged me and understood me, through many I-feel-like-giving-up moments. My book is done and readers are loving it."


No words to describe the encouragement she has bestowed upon me and helping me get my book published.


"Since I met JoEllen Claypool, I have gone from hobby writer to published author- what a feeling!"
