Bethany Jett attended her first writers conference with a proposal and a prayer and left with the Writer of the Year award, an agency contract, and interest from multiple publishers.
Three months later, she sold her debut book The Cinderella Rule: a Young Woman’s Guide to Happily Ever After (Revell), which became a Selah Awards finalist.
An entrepreneur at heart, Bethany co-owns Serious Writer, Inc., and is the Vice President of Platinum Literary Services where she specializes in marketing, nonfiction proposal creation, ghostwriting, and developmental editing.

She became the collaborative writer for Lacey Buchanan and penned two books: Through the Eyes of Hope: Love More, Worry Less, and Seek God in the Midst of Adversity and 40 Days of Hope: A Prayer Journey. Both are currently finalists in the Cascades Awards in their respective categories. Her newest book, written with Michelle Medlock Adams, releases in 2019.
Bethany’s love for marketing and social media led to her pursuit of her Master of Fine Arts degree in Communication. She also holds a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies: Behavioral Social Science and Humanities with a Criminal Justice minor. Bethany loves working with college students and is excited to be a guest lecturer for Ohio Valley University’s Metadisciplinary Honors Program.
