Since 2014, I’ve been a professional Book Coach at Author Accelerator™, a small startup company founded by Jennie Nash. I have also studied under Lisa Cron, the author of Wired for Story and Story Genius. I’ve worked with over 80 writers (fiction, memoir and nonfiction), mentored new book coaches, and contributed to the Coach Certification Training Courses. I’m also co-host for Season Two of the MomWrites podcast.
Why I Decided to Become a Book Coach
I love working one-on-one, getting to know how someone else thinks, finding out why they care about the stories they’re writing. My ideal clients tend to be courageous, dedicated and persistent. They’re also readers, lifelong learners, open to new ideas, willing to go through a process of trial and error. I’m inspired by them every day!
The iterative process of writing and then revising is hard work, and being asked to submit drafts for review makes most people feel vulnerable and exposed. That’s why I have so much respect for writers who say “Bring it on!” and don’t give up, the ones who are determined to find a way past the doubt and fear to see their projects through to the end. And that’s why I consider it a privilege to be a book coach. I love the work I do.
