Coaching Services

A story coach helps you write a story that's complete and ready for readers. Through regular coaching meetings and professional feedback on your work, you can be assured you've written a great book.

Work with a published author
and certified writing coach

You love stories. I love stories. But we both wish a fairy godmother could wave a magic wand and make our plot sound, characters engaging and prose polished.

If you're stuck, a story coach comes alongside and asks questions to help you discover what's right (or wrong) with your story so you can get to "the end."

Whether you need brainstorming help or advice about writing a synopsis, I'd love to partner with you and utilize my years of author experience to help you launch your story.

Expert feedback you can trust

You'll benefit from the wealth of knowledge I've accrued by attending writing classes and conferences, critiquing peer work, working with editors on my books, and enjoying a good story.

Guidance and accountability

Getting published is hard work. Simplify it by making sure your book is ready for readers. You'll need a solid story and engaging characters. If finishing is a struggle, you can opt for weekly meetings where you’ll set goals, and I’ll check to see if you’ve met them.

Sound story ideas

Brainstorming is my superpower. I’m widely read in genres ranging from romance to women’s fiction to fantasy and young adult. You want to work with a coach who understands your genre. And I can't wait to hear about your story!

A partner who has been there

It's disheartening to stumble through the first draft and seemingly endless revisions, never sure if you're making progress. There's a delicate balance between making the story better and removing its creative magic. What you need is a partner to help you take your writing to the next level.

Sharon is a talented and masterful author/coach who brings a unique blend of wisdom and practicality to her coaching. When I started working with Sharon, I was overwhelmed at the huge task of writing my first novel. But Sharon helped me to break down the myriad ideas of how to write a book into simple steps and encouraged fun in my writing again. Her encouragement and belief in me helped me to push aside lingering discouragement and gave me the push I needed to move my story forward. Sharon is exactly what I need to finish my book.
