About Me

No more thinking that it takes years and years to build up your credibility to become a featured expert or writer.

Hi, I am Patrice Tartt, The DREAM BIG WRITING Coach™ and I show my clients how to write, pitch, and publish. I have been featured in over 16 national publications and counting, as a featured expert and writer. I show women authors, bloggers, speakers, and entrepreneurs how they can turn their expertise and/or love for writing into an effective and quality pitch that can help them land a national feature as an expert, or as a writer for a national publication. I know firsthand how disheartening it is to spend countless hours researching the wrong information, to ineffectively pitch, and to get rejected.

I know, I know, you’ve pitched over and over again, and haven’t received that “yes” to your dream publication, and it seems like it’s nowhere in sight. Or you’ve never received that “yes”. I show my clients how to go from never being featured as an expert or writing for a national publication, to becoming a featured expert and writer by leveraging their expertise, matching properly to the right publications, along with pitching effectively. It’s possible with having me on your side; I’ve got your back!

Why I’m So Passionate

I started writing in order to cope with my dad’s passing and other issues that arose thereafter. The day of his funeral, I stood outside of his home hurt, angry, and confused, and said that I was going to write a book.

Prior to my dad passing away, writing was absolutely foreign to me. I mean, I would write in English class in high school, but the thought outside of that, especially creative writing, never crossed my mind. Oh yeah, and before I go on, a special shout out to Mr. Farley in Advanced Placement English who would bleed all over my papers every week with his red ink pen in high school. Sigh. I’ve come a really long way from that. Yet, I allowed the pain of my dad’s death to push me to my purpose of becoming a bestselling author and contributing writer for national publications like Black Enterprise, The Huffington Post, Madame Noire, SUCCESS, Curly Nikki, and Upscale Magazine.

Initially I used writing as therapy in order to cope with the loss of my dad, which really helped me to write my debut novel, Wounds of Deception. After I wrote and published it, I decided to expand my writing skills into the area of blogging, on a global level.

You see, after discovering that I could actually write, loved to write, and had this hidden talent to write, I couldn’t stop! It’s like a whole new world of “happiness” opened up for me, as writing is my “happy place”. It all started for me when a new blog created by a celebrity and reality television star, Yandy Smith was looking for bloggers, so I decided to pitch the editor. Trust me, it was my first time pitching to anyone, and I had no idea what I was doing, but once they told me that I would be joining their team as a contributing writer, boy was I excited! That was 2013, and I haven’t stopped since!

Here’s a few fun facts about me.

  • I don’t like wearing heels or earrings. Is that weird or what? I’m still a lady but I can rock out the cutest flats in my little black dress, with no earrings, a “blinged” out necklace, and a bracelet, and still feel like the baddest chica in the room! But, I do wear heels from time to time.
  • When I was growing up, I always wanted to be a special agent in the FBI. Did you know that I had an amazing opportunity to intern for the FBI in undergrad? Yes, girl! I surely did!
  • Did you know that I STILL want to be a Special Agent for the FBI? Shhh…don’t tell anyone though! I’ll still be here to assist you with pitching and writing, regardless. Remember, I got your back!
