Ronda Del Boccio
Ronda Del Boccio learned that people considered her different in a bad way when she was about six years old. She does not see the same way others do, and in the world of children, this is cause for bullying and harassment. Yet Ronda took what she now calls a “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” attitude, because fitting in was not of great importance to her.
Ronda may not see well, but she has a strong vision that guides her life. She uses the power that comes from her blindness to empower her and inspire others. She believes Persistence,tenacity, humor, intuition and ingenuity are traits that serve her well now as an entrepreneur author.
She has turned her love for storytelling, mythology, symbology and folklore into books, short stories, tools and teachings that help people better understand themselves and more easily connect with everyone. Like Kathie Lee Gifford, she KNOWS “Everyone has a story” and she helps them tell it with ease and style.
Ronda loves writing. "It gives me a chance to get paid to eavesdrop and spy on people," she quips. She is internationally published on 5 continents and has won awards for her tales.
She is working on the novel she began in November 2014 during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo It's called They All Died Smiling, a paranormal suspense story about an unwilling demon fighter trying to save lives while she herself is targeted.

If only we’d known early on how book writing made easy can join with heart marketing to create a joyful experience of both self-expression and selling and marketing.
But no… instead…The other day we found the first document we wrote together (an advice doc about relationship problems that we advertised in the National Enquirer in 1987…shhhhh)
Fortunately we sold only one of them and promptly put ourselves out of that ‘Mail-order” business idea
AND thank goodness! The writing was horrible! Truly a mish-mash with no organization, no focus – quite a mess!
Now we later went on to become the authors of 5 best-sellers – 4 books about romantic relationships and our latest – The Heart of Marketing – Love Your Customers and They Will Love You Back (Morgan James)
BUT – oh what we would have given for someone with the right expertise to guide us through the book writing process to make it easier and faster. And if only there had been someone who could have guided us through the process of discovering the soul-felt service of heart marketing our books -
But there was no one…
Now we know that the real fact is, writing a book is easy when you have a step-by-step roadmap to guide you from start to publish – and beyond – and The Story Lady Ronda Del Boccio’s program helps you plan for your larger future with your book – even before you start writing.
Ronda’s books are available everywhere See her Amazon profile. In addition to these books, she has contributions in 2 dozen fiction and poetry anthologies.
