Why work with me?

I didn’t have a problem with writing until I tried to write a book.

Before I was an editor, I was a journalist and then advertising professional who led creative teams. So, when I got the itch to write a book, I knew how to just sit and do the work. Good for me, right?

Not really. I landed deep in a draft that didn’t work. In my quest to get it right, I became a Certified Story Grid Editor trained by Shawn Coyne, an editor with 25+ years of experience. And because nonfiction is my passion, I’m also training with Jennie Nash to become an Author Accelerator certified nonfiction book coach.

Today, I help busy authors with proven frameworks and processes for moving good ideas from their heads and into a book that readers will love. There’s a natural synergy between marketing and content strategy and the skills needed to write a great nonfiction book (hint: it’s all in the planning).

I can help you clarify your main point, your book’s structure and outline, and how to speak to your reader. I’m also an experienced creative coach and can help you get unstuck and tap your best work. 

Books have the power to change lives, and skillful storytelling that sways minds and hearts is the most effective way to communicate your idea and leave a lasting impression. Unlike most business book editors, I know story. 

Working with me fast-tracks your timeline for writing a book that delivers on your goals, whether that’s establishing your brand or authority, sharing your expertise, or selling more goods or services.

If you’re serious about writing a book, we should talk.
