Q: Please tell our readers about yourself.
A: I am a multi-hyphenated woman: Author, Publishing Priestess at Radhaa Publishing House, and Founder of Goddess Code Academy. As a lifelong student and teacher of the Goddess Archetypes at Goddess Code Academy™, where I teach my original modality, Goddess Activations™. I was named after the Goddess of Love and Devotion. I’ve always felt such a deep connection to the many faces of the Goddess, which we bring through our collaborative books. As an autodidact, I love diving into life’s mysteries, connecting with my ancestors, delving into the creative arts, and rifting on the Galactic Goddess podcast with guests. As an advocate of diverse voices, I empower the voices of the unheard feminine, healers, visionaries, alchemists, priestesses, starseeds, and devotional seekers who have important messages to share with the world. In my spare time, you’ll find me walking through the forest, rescuing animals, collecting books, and crystals, traveling the world and doing daily prayers for world peace, sovereignty, and healing work for humanity. Though I am far from perfect, I believe we can embrace our imperfections and honor our unique human experiences through Storytelling. It’s a form of healing for both the author and the reader.
Q. What did you do prior to Publishing?
A. Before I founded my Publishing House, I worked in many aspects of the Entertainment Industry and as a Producer. I also had a Healing Practice in Hollywood Hills, where I had a spiritual counseling practice working with women in healing their heart and soul wounds. After listening to hundreds of women over the years, I realized how the truest voices of women were not being heard in the world. I realized that healing was needed, not just behind closed doors but through wider conversations and Storytelling. I was working with a modality called Goddess Activations™, which created a Goddess Archetype that helped women reclaim parts of themselves.
Goddess Activations™ is a modality I created and currently teach and use at Goddess Code Academy. I wanted to start having conversations about the things that women experience but rarely talk about, from abuse to dealing with patriarchal structures that continue to oppress, overcoming witch wounds, remembering my Priestess’s past lives, to working with the goddess in her many faces and forms to Rising through it all. I knew I wasn’t the only one with these stories, and I bridged the gap by launching Radhaa Publishing House and focusing on collaborative books.
Through our publications, we expand community outreach, creating connections to all four corners of the world. We aim to spread positive healing energy that supports inner wisdom and transformation through many perspectives. As an advocate for diverse voices whose messages are often ignored, I knew I needed to create a container for those ripe and bursting with the desire to share their stories. I understood the importance of creating sacred writing containers where they could be fully supported while incubating and developing their most sacred stories. I started to curate collaborative books as a sacred vessel. Radhaa Publishing House is breaking glass ceilings, helping authors to share, shine, and be fully empowered. I now spend my days supporting writers through writing programs, collaborative books, visibility, and marketing so they can become bestselling authors who are seen as experts in their field.

Q: How did you get into Publishing?
A: After writing my solo book, I got this divine inspiration to do a series called Awakening Starseeds, a collaborative book we curate yearly. These are a series of books with authors worldwide sharing their awakening stories. After spending years in the City of Dreams, I stepped away to live on the top of the Appalachian mountains, where I settled as a pioneer of sorts in this sacred land that was bursting with life but had very few people in proximity. This space, in contrast to the chaotic energy of Hollywood, living on the trail of tears, had me drop into deeper parts of myself. I was experiencing what some would call divine downloads, instructional packets of information on the collaborative book series Awakening Starseeds. Although I had done PR and covered celebrity events, I had never actually written a book.
I only knew that I was to gather the voices of people with these experiences around the world and produce a book with a cover and all of the pieces involved, which are quite extensive. So this was all new territory for me. I gained the most valuable lessons from trying and making mistakes but not giving up. But I have learned that my best teacher was trial and error, which we certainly did with our first book with all its moving parts. My experiences turned out to be extremely valuable. Working with the artist, the graphic designer, the editor, formatter, and since then, the entire process has become second nature for us as we have built a strong team to support these labor-intensive projects. The experience of curating a book is much like producing, but on paper, with many talents, voices, distribution, and people involved. So our authors have gotten the best of both worlds, and I always try to make the experience as empowering as possible with author interviews and pieces they can use for their promotional work and websites. We started our first collaborative book in 2019, and are just now releasing Awakening Starseeds, Vol. 3, Dreaming into the Future, in paperback. Since then, we have curated these Published Books below:
Awakening Starseeds: Shattering Illusions, Vol.1
Awakening Starseeds: Stories Beyond The Stargate, Vol. 2
Awakening Starseeds: Dreaming Into the Future, Vol. 3
Pillars of Light: Stories of Goddess Activations™
Quan Yin Goddess Activations™ Healing Workbook (these books are not for public sale as they only used at Goddess Code Academy as of 2021)
Energy Healing & Soul Medicine, Vol. 1

Q. What type of products, services, and creative works do you provide?
A. We offer various services, from creating coaching and group writing programs to collaborative book opportunities to author launch support.
Group Writing Programs: These live coaching programs provide structure, accountability, safety, and support. You get coaching and feedback in real time. We currently have a women’s writing program that starts on November 11 March 22nd. We meet monthly, and this writing program leads towards being published in the ‘Stories of the Goddess’ collaborative book in 2023. You can find info HERE:https://bit.ly/3pwjBtZ.
One-to-One Creative Coaching Packages: These are intended to meet you wherever you are on your writing or publishing journey. We set the intention with clarity on what is needed and where we are focused. It could be writing sessions, structure, or if you have your manuscript completed, and you need advice on getting you from A-Z.
Collaborative Author Opportunities: We offer a holistic version of the “Chicken soup for the Soul” series of books where multiple authors contribute to a book with a common theme. We curate multiple collaborative books with various themes that bring together like-minded storytellers. In the process, each person dives into a theme of the book, and each person writes their own story. Part of the process is supporting authors’ visibility through interview/s, training in the promotional aspect to gain more visibility, and cross-pollinating tribes. This is a win-win writing program and publishing that empowers all involved.
Author Launch Packages: If someone has written a book and is about to launch, we offer packages that support this vital next step in birthing your book to the world. We offer support on many levels, impactful press releases, and videos that authors can use to create traction in their ‘big announcement.’ Birthing a book is a big deal, and it’s challenging to do it alone. We enjoy elevating authors and their voices and vision through visibility.
Q. What kinds of problems do you solve for your clients?
We solve many problems for our clients to make their publishing experience more smooth sailing. For example, some people need a year to write a full book or six figures to publish it. But they know they have a message; they know they need to write and to be published. We provide an easy way to get published, seen, heard, and in an affordable way where we do all the heavy lifting. Another burden we lift off our author’s shoulders is through our Coaching Packages. Some writers come to us blocked and need support in unraveling their stuck stories. They may have too many emotions around them and need deeper support. Since our Coaches come from writing and healing backgrounds, this helps tremendously.
One author says of working with our Coach: “Radhaa Publishing House guided me and helped me reach in and see “the story” hiding within and behind the words. They helped me trust my truth and speak to the seed that brought my life of awakening to pass. My writing Coach, Maya the Shaman, worked with me to take me deep, and I had many moments of tears as I peeled back the layers. I rewrote the story numerous times before I got to the version that was published. I was forever changed by the experience of publishing with Radhaa Publishing House. As we got to hear one another and inspire one another along the way, the group dynamic was super supportive and truly inspiring.” – Stasia Bliss.
Q. What do you think sets you apart from others?
Radhaa Publishing House is owned and operated by women of color. But what sets us apart is that we are heart-centered small business owners. I appreciate what one of our authors recently said about us: “I have not seen the quality and heart-centeredness of a publishing house like Radhaa Publishing since Hay House. Radhaa’s outreach to high-integrity, high-vibration writers is above and beyond what I have generally seen in the literary world. If you are looking for a great publishing house or a great book, I highly recommend Radhaa Publishing House.” – Kory Muniz.
Q. What do you want potential clients to know about your work?
I want clients to know that becoming a published author is a profound and life-changing journey. Taking time to write your story will be passed down to future generations. We may be a small and humble publishing house, but we worked hard and were blessed to make waves. I am proud when someone reaches out to us to tell us how much our books mean to them. They have a feeling of resonating with the voices in our books, and in this way, they don’t feel alone. We talk candidly about our experiences on this journey in a way that’s not romanticized but raw, real, and vulnerable. This is part of greater healing. Everyone feels they have to be perfect.
The truth is, you can be perfect to share your story. What matters is authentic voices brave enough to share their stories. A woman wrote to me a few months ago, finally bringing to light a deep trauma she’s had since childhood that she never shared with anyone else. This courage to share and bring light to a dark situation liberated her in many ways after reading Pillars of Light: Stories of Goddess Activations™. Many women shared their tumultuous stories of overcoming trauma in this book. Since the reader felt she was not alone, she didn’t have to hide her secret or go to her grave carrying the heaviness in her heart and Soul. I think that’s worth more than gold!
In another scenario, a senior author whose life’s dream was to share her story of love and war against all odds. Her dream came true, and she was able to write and share her story with our team’s support before she died. Just as the book was coming out, she passed away. We were all really sad, and it was bittersweet. But her story lives on, will be passed down for generations, and is part of her Legacy. It makes my heart burst knowing that her dream manifested and we were able to support that last wish. This is beyond just a brand to me. It’s about sharing love and Legacy and helping people make their dreams come true.
