Legacy Launch Pad

Los Angeles Area

Hi! I'm a New York Times bestselling author of eight books, three-time TEDx speaker and talking head for GMA, The Talk and dozens of other programs. I've written for the New York Times, Time, Playboy, Vanity Fair and the Huffington Post, among many others. My podcast, Entrepreneur Publishing Academy, has been named one of the best publishing podcasts by LA Weekly, Feedburner, Podchaser and Kindlepreneur, among others. Through Legacy Launch Pad, I've overseen numerous books that have become Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestsellers—books which have helped our clients add six figures to their bottom line, sell their book rights to film producers and appear on shows like Today and Good Morning America as well as attract higher-quality clients, land speaking gigs and grow into being the leaders in their field. Find out about our services at Not sure if you have a book in your or even want to do this?

How authors can get booked on podcasts—and why they need to

Most of the pitches that podcast hosts receive are generic, publicist-written drivel that gets rejected. That’s why you’re much better off pitching yourself than having a publicist pitch you.


Legacy Launch Pad

We are a collective of New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling authors who write for publications like the New York Times, The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast. We come from the traditional publishing world and our founder (that's me!!) is often called upon to share her knowledge from over two decades of working in the publishing industry—speaking at masterminds and events worldwide, hosting a top publishing podcast and serving as the on-air book critic for ABC/KATU Portland. At Legacy Launch Pad, we write and publish books for entrepreneurs and thought leaders that get them wherever they want to go, whether that's sharing their expertise on TV shows, speaking on stages, attracting more business, leaving a legacy or all of the above.
