“I’ve know Mary Beth Coudal for a few years now, as a friend and as a fellow writer. She is an amazing woman as well as a wonderful writer, and I’ve learned a lot from her writing in the class we take together.
One of the hardest things to write about are our deepest emotions, and Mary Beth does that with ease. I think she can help any aspiring writer find it within themselves to do so as well.”
