Lois Hoffman is a writer, speaker, workshop facilitator, and coach for new and experienced writers. Write a Book Grow Your Business: Build credibility, establish expertise, and develop trust with your ideal client is her third book. Her first book on writing and publishing is The Self-Publishing Roadmap: A step-by-step guide to publishing the book of your dreams.

Combining her life-long passion for teaching with her expertise in self-publishing, Lois founded The Happy Self-Publisher to encourage writers to become authors and aspiring writers to put their thoughts on the page. She teaches writers to overcome writing, publishing, and book marketing obstacles through workshops and on her blog at www.happyselfpublisher.com.

She is also the author of The Almost Perfect Birthday Party: A sanity-preserving guide to planning a party your child will love. As a professional juggler and entertainer, she performs with her husband, Michael, as The Juggling Hoffmans. They share the gift of laughter at corporate, private, and community events. Her experience as an event planner and participant in 20+ years of birthday parties led Lois to write about successfully, although perhaps not perfectly, planning a birthday party for children. She has also been published in Highlights for Children.

Lois lives with her family in Newark, Delaware where she juggles her creative pursuits with enthusiasm and joy.
