Work with Me
After pandemic shenanigans, including the cancellation of three college speaking engagements in the Spring 0f 2020, and the cancellation of three writer's conferences and three literary festival I was scheduled to speak at, I found myself feeling the loss of a writing community. I responded by working virtually with writers to help them reach their publication goals. I currently do memoir manuscript consultations and occasionally work with writers one-on-one.
Fun fact: In 2020, 2021, and 2022, 85% of writers who worked with me published within six months.
In 2022 I became an IOATRC-certified Trauma Recovery Coach. Part of my coaching work includes helping people through writing. This practice is for writers and non writers alike. You don't have to publish to "be a writer."
