In my world - it’s all about the story.
I love good stories - reading them and writing them! As a freelance writer, I interviewed and wrote about people with amazing stories. What I'm passionate about now is helping people write and get their stories out, so their message is making a difference in the world!
So what do you need right now?
- Develop writing confidence
- Learn how to write a book
- Organise ideas into a structure
- Let your voice & style shine on page
- Learn writing & editing tips
- Want access to downloadable e-courses & online programs
- Advice on publishing options
- Help to write your story
My focus is on building confidence and giving you the tools you need to achieve your goals in writing and life!
How can you write that book bubbling away in your mind or pursue your dreams when you’re playing a story like:
“I’m not good enough.”
“I can’t do it.”
“Who would want to read my story?”
“I shouldn’t do this or that…”
“What will other people think?
These stories are like a broken record in your mind – stopping you from achieving your writing or life goals and ultimately living the life you want and sharing your beautiful gifts and talents to the world.
Want to know a little bit more about me?
I’m Leeza Baric. I’m a freelance writer, author, editor, mentor, movie-maker, writing teacher and speaker!
(In my spare time – mother, wife, house manager, cook extraordinaire, event planner, chauffeur, travel consultant & globe trotter, account manager, highly skilled negotiator, social advocate, wanna-be fashion designer and abysmal gardener.)
My father escaped from former “Communist” Yugoslavia in the late 50s and was shot as he ran towards freedom.
With one suitcase in hand, he migrated to Australia, saved his family and met my Aussie mother.
So, you see, I’m “pola – pola” (half – half) a Croatian – Australian and believe in speaking and living my truth, our truth!

I believe the “pen is mightier than the sword” and have a strong sense of social justice.
I have contributed to a number of publications in the hope of instigating positive change in our own lives, communities and the world.
From the moment I could hold a pencil I wanted to be a writer but didn’t have the confidence in myself to pursue a writing career.
A difficult life event made me realise that life was about doing what you love, so I enrolled into a Masters of Creative Writing.
A two-year course turned into a seven-year part-time marathon as I raised my children and supported my partner.
While I might have a lot of initials after my name and a huge student loan to pay back - (Bachelor of Arts (English Literature), Diploma of Education and now Master of Communication (Creative Writing) it’s my wobbly life experiences that have taught me the most.
I look forward to supporting you on your writing journey.

I look forward to meeting you soon, hearing your story and sharing this awesome life journey with you.
