    About Maureen

    Maureen Lander started the new millennium with a second career as a freelance technical writer, focusing mainly on training materials. She then offered to help a family member write the story of her immigrant mother’s life—and Maureen’s world was changed. She enjoyed it so much, she decided to help others capture their story, as in memoirs, or formalize their message, as in expert books. After ghostwriting over twenty books, she decided to also coach aspiring authors in their quest to eloquently express whatever it is they have to say.
