I've made a living at writing stories for other people. For 12 years, I have worked as a ghostwriter: writing novels, self-help books, and memoirs for people who couldn't figure out a way to get their stories out. My clients were primarily people with great stories but very little writing experience. As a ghostwriter, I had to learn their voice and reflect that story back at them. Now as an author coach, I can teach you how to find your own voice and how to get that story or book written.
Client Level: Novice to Experienced
Are you losing confidence in yourself, your writing ability, or your story? Or just struggling to meet your goals? Has it been months or years and yet your book is still sitting, unfinished? If need a swift kick in the pants to get that book written, I'm here to help kick you. Together, we will work to define and establish your goals, address any obstacles to meeting those goals, and putting together an action plan to help you get there.
Client Level: Novice to Beginner
Have a story screaming to come out, but struggle with the writing process? Perhaps grammar was never your strong suit, and you fell asleep while the rest of your class was diagramming sentences? Or maybe you've already tried submitting your manuscript to a publisher and received feedback, but you have no idea how to implement that feedback into your book? These courses will give you the foundational writing skills needed to write a first draft or self-edit a first draft for publishing.

Even experienced authors sometimes have trouble writing. If you're stumbling across plot holes, hit a roadblock with your characters, or find yourself staring at entire scenes that just don't work, I can help flesh out those issues and get you back to doing what's important: writing.
