Hello! It’s lovely to meet you.
I’m Trisha Jenn Loehr. I’m a book coach for women romance writers. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my IT-nerd husband, my sweet baby daughter, and Gizmo, our adorable rescue dog.
I’ve been a bookworm since I was tiny. As a book coach, I get to help women build their confidence and write great stories—specifically ones with happily-ever-after endings.
My goal is to always encourage my clients and help them build their skills and confidence so they can write their best story yet.
When you work with me you will always find
- A listening ear and encouraging voice to help you brainstorm, draft, or revise
- Someone who will ask questions to help you get to the heart of your story
- Someone to cheer you on and push you to be your best
I spent ten years working as a communications professional with non-profit organizations before making freelancing with fiction authors my main gig.
Along with a B.A. in Communications and Professional Writing, I have a minor in political science, a certificate in leadership and applied public affairs, and a certificate in dance performance preparation. (I know, it’s a weird mix.)
I have been certified through Author Accelerator’s Book Coach Certification program.
Professional development and continual learning is important to me. I have taken writing and editing courses, workshops, and seminars from:
- Liminal Pages
- The Starter
- Mount Royal University
- Editors Canada
- ACES: The Society for Editing
- Association of Canadian Publishers
- Author Accelerator
On My Blog
My blog started in 2010 as a place to celebrate reading and writing. Now, it’s a place for updates on my work, a place to squee about books that I’m excited about, and a place to share tips and resources for writers.
A few years ago, I added a new topic to the blog—infertility and pregnancy loss. I had my first miscarriage in 2017. In 2018, my son Hudson was stillborn after his heart stopped beating partway through my pregnancy. Six months after Hudson died, I had another miscarriage. And then, despite fertility treatments, I was unable to get pregnant during the next two years. Finally, in 2021, I got pregnant again thanks to the sciency magic of IUI and we welcomed baby Evie to our family. I started sharing about my experiences with infertility and pregnancy loss to encourage other loss parents by helping them know that they aren’t alone and to help their families and friends learn how to better support them through these incredibly painful journeys.
