Coaching for Kids

I wrote my first published novel at age 15, but I had written 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).
