Valerie L. Coleman has been called to help writers get their books published. Walking in her purpose, she helped to establish a publishing company for Christian books and plays. She edited manuscripts, handled financial matters, ensured the accuracy of print specifications and managed book inventory. Coleman has since spread her wings and established her own company, Pen Of the WritER or POWER, InfiniPromoter's 2008 Best Publisher.
Coleman has coached hundreds of aspiring authors through the process of writing and publishing. In addition to one-on-one consultations, she conducts workshops that provide step-by-step instructions on prepping, printing and pricing literary works.

Her first compilation, Blended Families An Anthology, released October 2006 (ISBN-13: 978-0-978-6066-0-2). Stories from novice writers and published authors from across the nation minister to the unique demands of blended or stepfamilies. This book has won numerous awards including the Black Christian Books Distributor's Top 50 Small-Independent Publishers Bestsellers (Non-fiction) and Christian Small Publisher's Association Nonfiction 2008 Book of the Year. The second Pen of the Writer book project, Tainted Mirror An Anthology (ISBN-13: 978-0-9786066-1-9), released October 2007. This collection of stories offers hope and healing to overcome the mental, physical and emotional strongholds that keep us from fulfilling our destiny.

Coleman was a contributing writer for The Midnight Clear, a Christian fiction anthology published by KNB-Publications. Her story, Safe in His Arms, is included with best-selling authors, Kendra Norman-Bellamy and Tia McCollors.

With a heart to teach and serve, she founded the Pen to Paper Literary Symposium in 2004. This annual conference draws participants from Washington to Florida. Past presenters include national best-selling authors Dan Poynter, Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, Vickie Stringer, Parry "EbonySatin" Brown and Kendra Norman-Bellamy. In 2005, Coleman co-founded Write On! Workshops. These workshops are geared towards the novice writer.

In May 2006, Coleman took her writing and publishing curriculum to the prisons. In addition, she developed a writing program for high school students. Under her tutelage, students learn the art and business of writing with the objective of completing a novella. Coleman hopes to incorporate scholarships from accredited institutions as the pinnacle of the Passionate Pens program.

Eager to invest in joint collaborations, Coleman is a founding member of the Soul of the Pen Tour. The objective of the six Christian authors is to use the written word to develop healthy relationships and strengthen families. Partnering with Dr. Vivi Monroe Congress, Coleman formed Queen V Publishing to transform manuscripts into polished works of art.

Coleman has segwayed her talents into the entertainment industry. Through Prose, Rhythm and Praise, she provides managment and promotions for music artists, comedians, dancers, comedians and music producers. She is the personal manager for the gospel trio, Christopher and promoter of the World Movement Evolution Tour.

Coleman has a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering from GMI Engineering & Management Institute and an MBA from the University of Dayton. She is a college mathematics instructor. A mother of five, she resides in Dayton, Ohio with her husband. They worship at Revival Center Ministries, International.
