I’m Alicia-Joy. I help travelers, ex-pats, and nomads write their travel stories.
I often squirm and whine through the process, but…
Writing has the power to change you + change readers.
Since 2012, I’ve helped hundreds of people write and share their work.
I help fellow travelers and nomads move through fear, shame, guilt, and self-doubt so they can write (consistently) and share their stories with the world.
Ready to get started?
I created a free resource, the Travel Memoir Jumpstart Guide, to help you get your travel stories out of your head and onto the page.
Here’s what’s in the Travel Memoir Jumpstart Guide:
- How to figure out your key motivator to start (and finish) your book
- What a travel memoir is and what it isn’t (don’t make the common mistake many beginning memoir writers make)
- The 6 essential characteristics of a memoir (you need to know these so you can write a memoir people want to read)
- How to write a captivating beginning (hook your readers from the start or they’ll close the book and won’t open it again)
- Strategies for building momentum so you start….and keep going (momentum is the key to finishing a book project)

A little (more) about me
I’m Alicia-Joy. I’m a writer, editor, and writing coach. Since, 2012, I’ve published 3 books of my own + ghostwritten 5 for clients. I’ve also provided editing, writing training, coaching, and ghostwriting services to clients for over seven years. I’m a current member of the Editorial Freelancers Association (EFA). I live in the UK….mostly. I’ve also lived in the United States, the Caribbean, and many other places of the world.
Sometimes I hit the road and live a nomadic life. Other times I stay rooted in the UK for a period of time….until the road calls me again. And it always calls.
A few nerdy facts about me:
*I love to travel to weird & nerdy places. I’ll take a unique bookstore over a popular carnival any day.
*I’m a word nerd. I suppose that’s why I love reading and writing so much.
*I’m a fan of slow travel. I especially love cross-country train rides.
*I love to dance. You can’t dance too much. Scientific FACT. I’ve studied these things.
*Before becoming a writer, I was a Registered Nurse. Nursing gave me a front-row seat to life. The toughest work I’ve ever done. Also the most rewarding. Nothing quite compares.
*I’m insanely grateful that you are here.

“Alicia, your writing course was timely and extremely relevant to me. There is so much information on the internet, that I’d started getting overwhelmed and not sure what direction to take. What I loved most about the course, was the way you broke down the different writing styles. I appreciated the various resources you so generously gave us on where and how we can market our services. Going forward with my business, I now feel confident about the future because I have more clarity. I wish I had done this course earlier, It would have saved me a lot of time that I’ve wasted trying to figure out stuff. Thanks Again.”Joyce Fiodembo. International Nurse Support
