Meet the Lady Boss & Owner at TWPRT

Hi, I’m Ally.

I was 5 when I was bit by the passion for the pen and the page. I was 11 when I wrote my first memoir. I was 32 when I finally figured out how to turn my passion for writing into a living. And I was 35 when I finally pushed through my own b.s. and published my first book. I’ve been braving the blank page and the writing path my entire life. Now I’m here to help brilliant, badass womxn brave their own path to the page, to craft their story with confidence, and to believe, without a doubt, their story of grit, hope, and triumph has ridiculous power. Here’s the “official” bio: Alyssa (aliases Ally and A.Y.) Berthiaume professional writer, native Vermonter, practicing feminist, recovering middle child, wannabe superhero, and a mom who’s pretty sure she’s “winging it”. She holds an M.F.A. in creative writing and is the Lady Boss Owner of The Write Place, Right Time, her virtual boutique of ghostwriting services. Whether she’s writing for herself or her clients, Berthiaume believes in emotionally compelling, honest, and powerful stories that are told in an authentic voice, come straight from the heart, and celebrate bravery, grit, and hope. If you can catch her not doing all the things, she’s probably drinking Maple Lattes in a coffee shop, getting lost in a bookstore, or binge-watching something on Netflix in her sweatpants while she eats ridiculous amounts of movie-theater-style popcorn.

In their own words...

...what my clients say about working with me

Marla Tabaka, Business Coach

“Working with Ally was a delightful, stress-free experience. I hired her to design an ebook for my website opt-in, along with an email sequence. What I love most is that the emails read as though I wrote them. Ally got me, and my voice and message, immediately. The ebook is gorgeous! It’s wonderful to have an opt-in that provides value, looks beautiful, and is likely to convert well.”

Erika Gaffney

“….Ally is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is imaginative and creative, and at the same time reliable and professional; and her attention to detail is impeccable. It is an uncommon associate who offers artistic innovation and dependability in the same package; Ally is that rare collaborator.”

Debbie Burns, Founder of the Sacred Rebels Soul Map

“…Not only is Ally an amazing writer, she’s an amazing strategist, marketer and all around business person. She dives deep into any project you give her to make it the very best it can possibly be. She meets deadlines, and makes everything she touches sparkle like a diamond.”

Kathy Goughenour, Expert VA Training

“…Not only is Ally an amazing writer, she’s an amazing strategist, marketer and all around business person. She dives deep into any project you give her to make it the very best it can possibly be. She meets deadlines, and makes everything she touches sparkle like a diamond.”

Mary J. Hanley, My Virtual Service Inc.

“Like most, I struggle to write about myself… I knew I needed someone who would take the time to get to know me and then be able to capture me on paper. Ally was the perfect person, both exceptionally talented and fun to work with. She was able to take my answers from her gamut of questions (from serious to lighthearted) and portray me perfectly… She met deadlines, was always professional, went above and beyond my original scope, and delivered exceptional final results. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Ally will be blown away and will love how she works her magic to make their essence come to life through words.”

Ed Coambs, Financial Therapist and Founder of Healthy Love and Money

“Ally is the goto person when you want to be understood, cared for, and then given direction. Her ability to connect deeply and then provide direction goes far beyond the ordinary. I initially engaged her for some copywriting work and the professional relationship has blossomed into a suite of services that have me excited and ready to bring my voice to my audience. The fear of putting myself out there and looking unpolished has been reduced knowing I have Ally in my corner. If you are ready to find and share your voice, Ally is the person to work with.”
