JODY DYER, Crippled Beagle Publishing


We all have lessons to learn. We all have lessons to teach. When ghostwriting, my number one objective is to empathize with the true storyteller, YOU. Together, we will find your voice and articulate your story, message, or mission to create a finished product that meets your goals.

​When editing, I apply decades of writing experience and my natural "way with words" to clean and refine messages for specific purposes and audiences.

​As a fundraiser, I partner with your group to create, complete, publish, market, and sell an industry level anthology that will bring not only a sense of great accomplishment to contributors, but also a stream of income to your organization.

Friends, I was raised in a family of southern minstrels and educators, where humor is honored and practiced as part of everyday life. I grew up listening to comedy records (yes, records) and reading Lewis Grizzard.  I’ve been compared to Fannie Flagg and Tina Fey, but I just think I sound like my mama! I think readers and students relate to my writing and teaching styles because I’m direct, approachable, friendly, and honest.

I earned a Bachelor's Degree in finance from The University of Tennessee and later attended Lincoln Memorial University to earn a Post-Baccalaureate Teaching Certificate in Business Education and Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Twenty-two years' combined experience in business and education allow me a unique perspective when assisting clients from middle-school age boys and girls to adult professionals.

My goals are to enlighten, encourage, and entertain through writing, speaking, and teaching opportunities. I look forward to working for you.
