Are you a writer who feels stuck?

Have you ever stared at a blank page with no idea where to begin? Or contemplated a pile of filled pages and weren’t sure how to start fixing them? Or have you read stacks of craft books and taken dozens of classes and only feel more lost about how to do this thing that you love? Has fear of failure or imposter syndrome ever glued you to the spot resulting in writer’s block or an inability to finish a project?

I have been there.

You don’t have to go it alone.

I am a women’s fiction writer as well as a book coach and understand what it’s like to feel stuck. It’s a horrible feeling to know something isn’t working in your draft but you can’t quite put your finger on it. It’s discouraging when your progress is stymied by doubt. I have been lucky enough to find support in my writing career from people who have helped me understand my weaknesses, shared tools to strengthen my craft, and bolstered my confidence along the way.

I want to be that support for you.

As your book coach, I can help you flesh out an idea so you can draft with confidence or walk you through a revision so you can edit with purpose. My goal is to shine a light on your path forward to a finished story. When we work together, you will walk away with a stronger story, armed with new skills to carry forward with you on your writing journey.

If you feel stuck and want an assist to level up your craft, to trust your creative instincts again, and to confidently write the stories of your heart, I would love to talk to you about how I can support your creative goals.

Writing Support

Whether we work together formally or not, I want to be a resource in your craft toolbox. See my blog for writing tips and support designed to help keep writers writing.

How to Know if You’re a “Good” Writer

When my first son was born, I was a prototypical first time parent. I asked a lot of questions at each pediatrician visit. After one particularly self-doubt fueled question session, I looked at our beloved doctor and asked, “How will I know if I’m a good mom?” His answer? “The fact that you’re even asking…

Writing a Novel: What’s Your Point?

We are big Ted Lasso fans in our house. I love the messages about vulnerability, the importance of friendships, the challenge to toxic masculinity in sport and the wide world, and Ted’s down home quips that remind me of every great aunt sitting around our family reunions growing up with similar silly sayings twisting their…

Starting Your Novel: Prep for Success

You’ve decided you want to write a novel. You probably have a great idea. A scene that’s played in your head during your commute, a question that bugs you, a character whose voice echoes in your head in the middle of the night. You find some quiet time one Sunday afternoon or set the alarm…
