My name is Caitlin Ryan βœ‹ I'm an author πŸ“š, an editor πŸ“•, and a writing coach πŸ’‘. I'm also queer 🌈, neurodivergent πŸ‘‘, and a general lover of stories πŸ”₯.

I’ve been writing down stories ever since I first picked up a pen and fell in love with editing via an obsessive teenage interest in fanfiction. Don’t worry, I’ve taken things to a more professional level since then, and now I work primarily with indie authors (many of them neurodivergent and/or queer). The Neuro Spicy Author Academy came about after watching many clients struggle to meet their deadlines and achieve their goals without coaching, accountability, and support. We all deserve a community, and I can’t wait for you to join ours.

Check out a few of the shiny inclusions!

Weekly videos, email check-ins, ebooks, workbooks, Q&A sessions, and so much more!
