Cathy Yardley sold her first novel to Harlequin in 1999. Throughout her career, she has sold about 1.2 million copies in fiction & non-fiction, international & domestic. Cathy has traditionally published multiple novels in women’s fiction, Chick Lit, romance, and urban fantasy.
In 2011, she started RockYourWriting.com with the mission of helping genre novelists make a living. She has helped hundreds of authors as a developmental editor, writing coach, and through her “plot sessions” – one-on-one calls that get authors from concept to plot points in one hour. She’s also written the Rock Your Writing series of reference books, taking authors through the writing cycle, from concept to completion, as well as helping authors figure out the foundation plan for building their brands and marketing their work.
