Creative writer and poet with a strong work ethic and ability to weave words that move people.

Do you need help writing that novel that lives in your head or your memoir? Have a great story to tell, but not the facility with words that will allow you to tell it well?

I'm here to write for you or coach you through the process. I have a BA in English and have written my own novels. I'm also a Licensed Science of Mind Practitioner which means I have coaching skills that can help you break through old patterns and replace limiting beliefs...

Service Description

Ghost Writer

Sometimes an idea takes up residence in your brain, but you just can't get it down on paper in such a way that will allow you to sell it. Let me help you turn that idea into a book. I can write it for you or I can coach you through the process of writing it, guiding you all the way to a finished book that is good.

Writing/Expression Coaching

You'll become the communicator you always knew you could be.

I will guide you through the writing of the book that wants to come through you. We'll work together every step of the way so you become a better writer while getting the book written. This is done via weekly coaching sessions.

I also provide shorter hourly coaching to help you improve your writing skills.
You’ll be able to better communicate via email, resumes, proposals,
web copy, blogs and social networks.

Master this skill and you’ll master your life as well as grow your reach.
