What working with a published author gets you
I’ve been writing since I was in third grade, the year a green spiral notebook captured the words of my first “book.” In the decades since, I’ve taken multiple writing classes, attended writing conferences, joined critique groups, gained and lost publishing contracts for romance and fantasy, and struggled alone until finally cultivating an intimate network of writers who share the writing dream.
I’m a teacher without pupils. When I talk writing, it brings great joy, and when I help others brainstorm their way to an aha moment, it’s a thrill. I’m looking for those happy sparks when I sit down with you — the next writer I’ll help.
No matter where you are in your writing journey, I’ve been there. I can help you navigate the confusing map of options, rework your story to make it stronger, refine your writing process and focus on getting words on the page. Don't let insecurity and uncertainty keep you from your dream writing career.
I understand what it’s like to stumble through the first draft. and seemingly endless revisions. I’ve learned the delicate balance between making the story better and removing its creative magic. When does the red pen need to stop so the manuscript can ship? Let me partner with you in your writing quest and help you take your writing to the next level.
