A Royal Journey

I am Michele Smith, owner of A Royal Journey and Royal Word Publications. I am a native of Southern California who loves to write, read, enjoys music, family, friends and the beach.

I am a writer, author and publisher. My love for writing actually developed after one of my teachers in first grade sent a note home to my mom that said I needed to work on my penmanship. Apparently I was writing as left-handed dominant using my right hand. My mom was very strict about school so after getting that note, she made me sit at the dining room table every day for an hour and write. It didn't help that my mom had beautiful penmanship. Over time my penmanship corrected and now I too have beautiful penmanship. Through this process, I developed a love for writing and it has opened a whole new world for me. I've authored and self-published three books, have assisted others in their writing journey and currently have over 20 book projects in the pipeline. 

I established Royal Word Publications in 2009 as I endeavored to publish my first book. I absolutely love helping others. I realized that I was often on the receiving end of calls, texts and emails from family or friends asking for my input, drawing on my experiences or tapping into my knowledge base. So, in 2016 I became a Certified Life Coach. Today I use all of my work and life experiences as well as training to guide others in their journey whether it is in life, relationships or business. I believe that while every day may not be a good day, there is something good in every day. The choice is ours to make and I choose to do all I can with what I have to help as many as I can as often as I can in any way that I can.
