Words matter…make yours count.

No matter if I'm teaching a creative writing class, publishing a blog or podcast, coaching a fellow creative, or just chatting with other writers, I am always trying to find ways to inspire, encourage, and inform the writing lives of others.

It is a pleasure to work with other writers to encourage, develop, and deepen their writing. Every year I learn something new about the world, and about myself, from my writing students and clients.

If I can be of help to you, as you seek to meet your writing goals, please contact me. Look around this website. There are plenty of opportunities for us to connect. I look forward to hearing from you.

I was lost in my own words…

I am so grateful for your insights into ways my novel could be improved. Before your help, I was lost in my own words and thoughts. You helped me focus on what was worth keeping as well as to accept the changes that would improve my writing. Your honest and insightful encouragement were invaluable to me. Thank you.
