About Me
Andrea Cagan Writer

I’ve been writing, ghost writing, collaborating, and editing for three decades. A best selling author many times over, I have worked with royalty, news anchors, rock stars, movie stars, wounded warriors, motivational speakers, and gold medal winners.

My classes and seminars are my focus now, as I combine practical information with my personal discoveries to help writers find their authenticity and keep the words flowing. I believe that writing can be a joyful experience and I pass that on to my students in an encouraging and playful atmosphere where we all help each other become better writers.

She had all the accouterments that came from earning the big bucks: a house in Malibu, Italian bedding that felt like heaven, a closetful of designer clothes, and a recurring infomercial that lured a large audience of followers on a steady basis.
