Rochelle Melander is a teaching artist, professional certified coach and the author of Mightier Than the Sword: Rebels, Reformers, and Revolutionaries Who Changed the World Through Writing.
She’s also written 11 books for adults, including two books to help people write. (These books are great for young people 10 and up!): Write-A-Thon: Write Your Book in 26 Days (and Live to Tell About It) and Level Up: Quests to Master Mindset, Overcome Procrastination and Increase Productivity.
Rochelle is the founder of Dream Keepers, a writing workshop that teaches young people how they can change their lives and communities through writing. She’s taught writing to children and adults at schools, universities, libraries, art museums, botanical gardens, churches, synagogues, corporate events, and art studios.
Rochelle loves to learn and has earned two master’s degrees, received a certificate of study in professional coaching, and completed the National Writing Project’s Summer Writing Institute. She holds the PCC certification from the International Coach Federation and is currently studying to become a Certified ADHD Coach. Rochelle has coached young people and adults from all over the world.
Rochelle believes that you can find the answer to your questions and the questions that deserve answers in a book or at the tip of your pen. She writes books, blog posts, journal entries, shopping lists and the occasional poem and owns enough books to start her own library. Even so, she reached the library’s lending limit many times while writing Mightier than The Sword.
She lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her husband, children, and two goofy rescue dogs. Rochelle also blogs at https://writenowcoach.com/blog/
