If self-doubt, uncertainty, or procrastination have been preventing you from writing your book, maybe it’s time to stop flying solo.

As a certified Author Accelerator Book Coach™ and Story Genius™ Editor, I can provide technical expertise, accountability, and emotional support so you can write forward with confidence.

I specialize in nonfiction, memoir and self-help, but I also coach other genres, including middle grade and young adult. I can guide you through every stage of the writing process, from drafting to revising to pitching.


DRAFTING

Feeling stuck? Unsure where to start or how to finish? I can help you set realistic goals, develop a solid plan, stay on course, and (at last!) experience the thrill of holding a full-length manuscript in your hands.

REVISING

Already have a rough draft? I can evaluate your existing manuscript and gently coach you through the iterative process of strategically planning and targeting your revisions for the best results.

PITCHING

Ready to look for an agent? I can help you develop a solid strategy and prepare to make a great pitch. By focusing on what’s within your control, you can enhance your confidence and improve your chances of success.


Kemlo was there for me when I almost gave up on my book. She helped me with personalized feedback on the big picture of my project, on my common writing problems as an academic used to “telling” and not “showing,” was prompt in responding to my questions, kind with my challenges, and flexible with giving me an extra day or two to finish. She believed in me more than I believed in myself.

Kemlo was my writing coach for a year as I revised my non-fiction manuscript and turned it into a novel. She is a person with immense integrity who possessed the perfect dose of patience, skill and motivation to guide me through every step of my new draft. She was the steady voice in my head as I wrote 10 pages a week, always providing critical feedback with a positive attitude. I couldn’t wait to get her comments back so I could see what I was doing right and where I needed to improve.
