Let's be honest: writing is hard.

The good news? You don't have to go it alone.

What brought you here today? Are you working on a book and...

  • you haven’t been able to find the time to write?
  • you’ve started a first draft but aren’t finishing it?
  • you keep revising the first chapters, hoping that eventually the rest of the story will become clear?
  • you are doubting yourself, wondering What if no one likes it? What if it turns out I’m a terrible writer? What if this story is no good?
  • you have trouble just making yourself sit down and write already?

My friend, you are in the right place. If you are a writer in the beginning stages (from idea to first draft) of writing contemporary* middle-grade, young adult, or adult fiction, or adult memoir, and looking for a book coach, a manuscript review, or just some good ol’ fashioned accountability, I am here for you. 

  Why?

Because I believe that your story matters.

* Contemporary fiction is, in a nutshell, stories of regular people living regular lives.

Ah, writing. Sometimes we love it, and sometimes we hate it. (Or as several famous writers have been quoted as saying, we love having written.)

 

A lot of us believe that we need to wait for inspiration to strike.

 

The problem is that this belief goes against what we know is true: that consistent practice makes us better writers.

 

I have personally grappled with this for years. I would sit down to write, feel uninspired, and get up to do something else. Or worse, I would never sit down in the first place. Over my years of experience as a teacher and writing coach, I’ve heard many would-be writers say the same thing, so I know I’m not alone here. (You can read more about my story here.>>)

 

Then there is writing a book, which sometimes feels like wrangling a wild animal. The story pulls you one way, then another, and before you know it you don’t know the beginning from the middle … and is there even an end in sight? 

 

These are all things we will work on together.  

 

As your book coach, I will work with you to write your story with intention and focus. Using an individualized approach and your unique message, I’ll guide you to create a road map for your story that will maximize its impact on the reader. I will also be your partner in accountability and revision as you work through your first draft. 

 

Let’s do this together. 

 

It's time. Your story is waiting.
