As the founder of the National Association of Memoir Writers, I’m passionate about memoir, memoir writing, and coaching memoirists to meet their goals and challenges writing a memoir. Whether it’s a seed of an idea, stories that need a professional eye, or support for planning a book or your writing career, we can discuss what will most help you meet your goals.
I will help you with your writing goals and the accountability you need to complete your project.
A coaching session includes one half hour of private phone coaching, and a half hour to read your materials prior to each session, comments on your work, and emails. Contact me today for your complimentary strategy session. I look forward to discussing your memoir and writing goals with you. Your story is unique and it takes courage as well as skill to bring it to fruition. I look forward to learning about your work and helping you meet your goals!
