    As a author coach and publisher, I offer coaching and publishing solutions for all your needs. Whether you have an idea for a book or you want to complete a book you started. I have an extended team of book and design professionals ready to take you all the way past the finish line.

    My expertise is in helping authors get published, and my passion is in making sure the books they’re putting out into the world are nothing short of gold standard (across editorial, design, and production).

    With coaching, I’m interested in helping writers achieve their goals—and enjoy the process along the way. Sometimes we can be so focused on the end goal that we get to the end only to look back and wonder what it might have been like to have dropped down into the journey just a little bit. In consulting, I bring my years of publishing expertise to help you get exactly what you want—an agent, a publisher, a completed book.

    There are lots of ways to get there, and I don’t believe in giving up. My job will be to support you and devise strategies to propel you forward and help you access your untapped, forgotten, or ignored passions and energies that will get you moving, no matter if you’re completely stuck or charging ahead at a zillion-miles an hour toward a hard deadline.
