About

Hello! It's lovely to meet you.
 
I'm Trisha Jenn Loehr. I'm a book coach, an editor, and a writer. 

 

Who am I?

I’ve always loved stories and been intrigued by the power of the written word. Because of this, I studied communications and professional writing in university.

Before taking my freelance business full time, I spent ten years working as a communications professional with non-profit organizations.

Most of my free time is spent with my nose in a book—I’ve been a bookworm since before I could crawl. I also write about books, infertility and pregnancy loss on my blog trishajennreads.

I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada with my IT-nerd husband and Gizmo, our adorable rescue dog. Thanks to the beauty of remote work, I can work for clients all around the world.

I have taken writing and editing courses, workshops, and seminars from:

 

  • Liminal Pages (Sophie Playle)

  • The Starter

  • Mount Royal University

  • Editors Canada

  • ACES: The Society for Editing

  • Association of Canadian Publishers

 

Why Work with me?

As a book coach, editor, and writer, my goal is to help people tell their stories in ways that will resonate with their audiences, inspire people, and contribute to making this world a better place.

  • I’m passionate about the power of books—especially fiction—to entertain, comfort, and teach. I love helping authors tell stories that bring joy, hope, and healing to readers.

  • Non-profits have amazing stories to tell about how people overcome difficulties or do good in the world. I love helping share these stories—both to inspire others and to raise funds to help organizations continue to do important work.

  • Small businesses can make huge impacts in our economies and in our communities. 

 

My goal is to always encourage my clients and help bring their vision of the story to fruition.

 

When you work with me you will always find

  • A listening ear

  • An encouraging voice

  • Someone who will ask questions to fully understand your vision

Education

 

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.

 

Professional development and continual learning is important to me.

 

I regularly take courses and read books to expand my understanding of writing, editing, and publishing, and connect with other editing professionals. I am a member of Editors Canada and volunteer as one of the chairs of the Calgary Twig.

 

I am currently taking Author Accelerator’s Advanced Book Coach Training: Fiction.
