Welcome to Blake & Beckner Writing Co.

Launched in 2009, by writer friends, Lindsay Blake and Layne (Beckner) James, Blake & Beckner Writing Co. was established to write, connect with other authors, share content, and bring others alongside them in the writing journey.

The two friends met on the big island of Hawaii and traveled to nearly 17 countries together with an international volunteer organization. They started a blog to document their travels back in 2009 and had dreams of writing together on a larger scale.

They co-wrote the award-winning book, Act Here. Love Now. in 2011 with their teammates. Fast forward to 2013, when the two began to write their current book, Remember Us. They started their next book, Twelve Hearts, in 2016. They are currently in the midst of two major book edits (on the latter two books) and a third novel is already in the works.

Lindsay and Layne are writers, dreamers, nomads, homebodies, and storytellers. Shoot us a line and tell us your story.

  • Staring at all the things I could be reading while I do my homework instead. 🤔🙄
  • Wilde knew. He knew.
  • For the first time in weeks I have a date with myself to write! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 I still have piles of work to catch up on, but I'll work late every night for a week in exchange for sitting down on my bed for one day whole and writing. ☕️📝
  • A little afternoon tea time. 👌🏻👌🏻
  • Friends! We promise we haven't forgotten about you (or our books!) It's been a full summer of Living (and working) and making memories. We haven't gotten as much writing time as we'd like, but we're already dreaming about what this will look like in the fall. We'll keep you posted of course. ❤️
  • Yes, tell those wolves I'm home. I've been back home for less than a week and have been working like crazy. Finally crawling back into bed tonight and will probably manage to read for ten minutes before I fall asleep. 😴 I'll take it. (Side note: this is one of my all-time fave reads everrrrr.)
  • It's been a loooong day catching up on work. (Okay, not catching up-*starting to catch up.) Now I'm ready for my pillow and some light reading. ✌🏻
  • Rainy Saturday = getting up with this guy and reading before the rest of the house is awake.
  • I'm at my sister's house this week, which means no writing but extra bookshelf raiding. 🙌🏻
  • Books and cozy=my weekend priority. 👌🏻
  • My goal this week is to catch up on my reading...but here I am on insta while my book sits idly in my lap. 🙄😬🙈
  • Since the hubs is away for work, this is clearly my entire weekend. 👌🏻 #amquerying #amwriting #amediting
