I’m Erin Brown, MA, MFA (aka author Erin Brown Conroy and EB Conroy),
a professional writer for over 30 years, a professional speaker just as long, and a personal coach for over 20 years.

I work internationally with entrepreneurs and writers to
* Powerfully share your ideas with crisp, strong text
* Write your book using clear 1-2-3 methods
* Get your message to your followers, your people, your students, and even your child through online materials, courses, books, and interactions that go beyond the norm because they’re sparked with The Mastery Learning Principle.

Now, something to consider:
I’m not part of the newbie crowd who thinks they’ve got it sorted and,
in reality, has not been-there-done-that.

In my opinion, there’s nothing worse than getting “advice” that’s costly.
So don’t waste your time and money spinning your wheels
with those “teaching” and “coaching” who aren’t qualified.

Get the results you need and have wanted for a long time. 

Find my books here on Amazon, including the internationally-enjoyed  Simplified Writing 101: Top Secrets for College Success.

Influence Story:
On graduation day with that first degree, the 86-year-old commencement speaker stepped up to the mic. White hair blazing, head held high, she waved her hand across the audience with a challenge: “Every day is a gift. What incredible things will you do with your life? Never stop growing. Never stop learning. I’ve traveled around the world twice and am ready for the third time…and a fourth…and a fifth. You never know what you can accomplish, but it’s most likely more than you think. No excuses. Dive in. And keep diving.”
