What you'll learn...
You made the experience of writing my first book a smooth and easy process. When I couldn’t see beyond the timeline of my story, you managed to help me structure my story, eliminate and incorporate just enough information with each chapter. You managed to capture my voice in a very uncanny way. Working with you was a pleasure and as a result, I feel we have created a captivating book.
Just Keep Going
I wrote my book over eight years, so it needed much assistance with structuring all the different parts into one cohesive text. Leeza helped to make my book sequential and flow without repetition; to have the correct tense throughout, and good sentence structure. The content was very personal to me so it required someone warm and objective to read it. She was a pleasure to work with. The job was done in a timely manner with professionalism and respect for my writing. I could not be happier with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend Leeza and her work to anyone.
Working with Leeza Baric on my second book was one of the best things I could have done. She approached everything with warmth, support and professionalism. I felt encouraged all the way. My book needed a lot of tweaking and Leeza helped me get clarity. I was in dire need of another perspective and Leeza delivered with gentle honesty. She is a skilled writer and empathic mentor. Her work helped me to become a better writer. I have a book I can be proud of, and it has received some great reviews. I am very grateful to Leeza for all her hard work.
Awesome session this morning with my writing coach!! I believe that if you want to be good at anything then you need a great coach, someone who has succeeded at it before you!! All of those fabulous athletes we have witnessed in Rio have coaches. Do you have a book in you? Talk to Leeza, it's a lot of hard work but so much fun!!!

This is why I created my Memory to Memoir Writing Course
My name is Leeza Baric and I believe that our stories inform, inspire and entertain others. I believe that our stories can change the world. Call me an idealist!
I believe that the pen is mightier than the sword and I've been writing stories ever since I could hold a pencil.
Writing is my life! I've written articles for local and national publications, edited and mentored people to help them write their stories, taught creative writing classes, been a ghostwriter, and written my own books. For me it's all about the story.
I know what it's like to have that burning desire to write a book and share your message but not feel sure how to do it.
I've combined my Masters degree, Post-graduate Diploma in Education and my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature PLUS my love of self-development, to live my dream of writing and helping others write their stories.

"I have been, of recent, exploring teachers and mentors who are able to help budding authors to take steps from their first word to print. These were offering rapid programs (a weekend retreat) to help create a book and along with that a price tag that is out of this world. The one element I felt with each of these programs is that they are simply selling a system. What inspires me about Leeza and her teaching and mentoring is that she has a deep passion for writing as well as her proven system. The word is ignited within her and she will certainly ignite your flame for writing. Thank you Leeza for your safe space that you hold for each of your students allowing them to truly know that their word is worth sharing." (Elle, QLD, Australia)
