Author In You™ 

Welcome to  Author In You™! 

If you’re an aspiring author or budding writer with a story (or stories) to tell and you need some encouragement, practical tips and motivation to keep writing forward, you’ve come to the “write” place. While longtime author/writer coach Stacy Hawkins Adams doesn’t read manuscripts or provide formal critiques of your work ( she can refer you to great resources), she is eager to guide you through the process of going from idea stage to finished manuscript, with some author branding and marketing training along the way.

If you are…

  • Are an aspiring author who has a book in progress or is curious about where to start and how to finish, or
  • A beginning writer who simply wants to document your life experiences, or
  • A journal keeper who wants to take your writing to another level

Author In You™ can help!

  Visit the various pages on this website to find opportunities to participate in a thriving and caring writer community (Focused Writers); receive one-on-one guidance about your personal publishing ideas or projects (coaching or consulting) or spend a few hours in a small group setting exploring your writing goals – for publication or personal gratification – and how to take them to the next level (through Stacy’s in-person writing workshops).


Coming in 2024!

Focused Writers Intensive – a 10-month program that guides writers from idea stage to finished first draft. Registration details coming soon!


Teleseminars, Workshops, Individual Coaching:

She also occasionally teaches a 6-week teleseminar or webinar fiction or nonfiction course called Author In You; leads small-group writing workshops for individuals interested in writing books, blogging or even journaling; and as time permits coaches or consults with a select few writers who are serious about finishing their manuscripts, building a strategic author platform or exploring in-depth how to craft a solid writing path and career.

A natural encourager and champion of storytelling, Stacy believes everyone has experiences and stories worth capturing in writing and sometimes sharing with the world. It’s up to you where you want to take it. Let her be your partner.
