#147 – Barbara Boyd on How Experts Can Write Books

Barbara Boyd is a nurturer by nature — she helps people, projects, and plants grow and flourish.

Since 2015, she has helped more than a hundred authors develop their book ideas and edited more than a hundred manuscripts.

Barbara has written or co-written a dozen of her own books, too, including Macs All-In-One For Dummies, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Pinterest Marketing, and Innovative Presentations For Dummies.

Her superpowers are active listening, organization, and being able to see both the whole picture and the steps to go from idea to completion.

Whether she’s coaching a writer on a book idea, editing a manuscript, or tending the garden, Barbara brings the same care, attention, and intention to the task.

When she’s not coaching, editing, or reading, Barbara tends an olive farm in southern Italy, where she lives with her husband and their dog, Lucy.
