WHY MICHAEL LA RONN?
Almost no one in the writing space talks about “risk management for writers” (borrrring, right?!!!)
BUT…I’ve been talking about disaster and contingency planning for writers since 2016.
No one listened to me—until now.
I have written over 50 books of science fiction, fantasy, and nonfiction of authors, so I understand writers.
I also have over a decade in the insurance industry.
As a commercial claims adjuster, I helped thousands of people and businesses survive disasters that threatened their livelihoods.
As a commercial underwriter, I helped businesses predict disasters BEFORE THEY HAPPENED.
I have internationally-respected insurance degrees and I teach classes on risk management to insurance agents.
I know a thing or two about planning for future disasters—especially for writers.
Let me help you.
