About Us

We are Hollie Overton + Dedi Felman

We love helping others tell their stories. We’re experienced teachers. We’re also writers who have been in your shoes. When it came to writing her first novel, Hollie, an international best-selling author and screenwriter, found a class and an incredible teacher that guided her through the process. That experience stayed with her. She now replicates it for others. Dedi, a former Big-5 senior editor and successful book consultant and screenwriter, has spent most of her life helping authors write their books. She also had incredible mentors. Neither did it alone.

We understand how important support and guidance is. We’re here to help you bring your stories to life and share our wealth of knowledge regarding the ins and outs of the industry.

Join us and conquer your writing goals.
