About Valerie Ihsan

Hello Writers and Super Fans!

I'm an author, story analyst, and dog lover. (I also work as a bookseller in an indie bookstore by day!)

Since 2010, I've assisted authors with editing, story diagnostics, teaching, coaching, and consultations. I also podcast to provide free content to authors who need education or inspiration in order to finish writing their books, and to put their best work out into the world. Each episode of the Creativity and Craft for Writers podcast provides craft tips or creative inspiration, just when you need it.

The support of my patrons on Patreon helps make this show and other projects possible. (Plus, being a patron of the arts is a totally cool thing to do.) 

Joining my Patreon community gets you sneak peeks into my creative world, allows you to interact with me directly, and rewards you with exclusive bonus content you can't get anywhere else

You being a patron makes it possible for me to help even more people, too, as well as have the resources to keep writing, publishing, and marketing my own books. Even $1/month helps me because it's regular income I can count on. And that makes a big difference to me, and it shows me that you think I'm doing good work in this world.

Take a look through the benefits tiers. I'm confident you'll find something you like. Thank you for becoming a patron of the arts, and I can't wait to see you on the show!

I'm so happy you're here. 


$20.35 of $45 per month
As of February 2020, my hosting costs are covered with your Patronage. THANK YOU!

Personal goal: If I can get to $45/month, I'll be able to buy an extra tank of gas for my vehicle. This allows me to travel to see my aging father once a month and help with household chores that he can't do by himself anymore.
