Years ago, in the heyday of blogging, I joined the throng. As a karate student and long-time lover of the art, I tended to liken much of what I learned on the mat, to my struggles to become a published author. As an extrovert, I never much liked doing things alone, so I created the Writing Ninjas, and invited all my friends along. For several years we were a force to be reckoned with! Now, we're the StoryNinjas, and we kick butt!

Now, I'm a USA Today Bestselling author, and a national speaker at industry events. I'm a particular fan of the Save the Cat method of story building. Along the way, I've been certified in life coaching and neuro linguistic programming, two mindset skills I regularly use to help writers find and connect to their own stories. 

I am Ali Cross, the StoryNinja, and it would be my honor to help you create your own masterpiece, just as I've helped hundreds of writers before you.
