Being a writer is hard. I struggled with being blocked for years, and had to work hard to conquer my inner critics and build up a productive writing practice again. I didn’t just want to be productive, however: I wanted to be happy. I wanted to get my childhood joy and wonder back, when I would write for hours and fall in love with my own stories.

I will help you to create a productive, joyful daily writing practice and, if you have a specific project on which you are working, I will work with you weekly and hold you accountable to develop and finish that project. I want you to find happiness and peace in your writing, and to feel excited to wake up and work every day.

Each coaching package includes an initial 45-minute consultation, followed by a weekly meeting in which we review the past week, and set goals for the following week. I will also assign homework for you. Every writer is different, and so every coaching session will be geared towards who you are as a person, and your specific writing style and needs.

Sessions can be conducted over the phone, via Skype, or in person.

Coaching for Kids

I wrote my first published novel at age 15, but I had written several ‘books’ before that. The first I remember was a story about a fairy. I illustrated it, bound it with two sheets of cardboard and ribbon, designed my own cover and wrote my own blurb, and then proudly finished it off with a scribbled barcode and ‘Unicorn Publishing’ written on the back. I never had any doubt that I was capable of writing a book, and I have no doubt that other kids who are voracious readers and writers can write one, as well.

I am a certified middle-school English teacher here in Texas, as well as having an MFA in Creative Writing and a post-graduate diploma in Book Publishing, and I want to work with young people who are as passionate about telling stories as I am. I firmly believe that, with help and guidance, kids can create publishable work.

My coaching will mentor your child through the writing process, the editing process and, finally (if that’s the direction you want to go), the publishing process. I also offer lessons in Creative Writing.

Sessions can be conducted over the phone, via Skype, or in person ($10 charge for in-person if I’m coming to your house).
