You’re a writer working on a book manuscript and unsure of what to do when you’re done with it. You’re a storyteller wondering the best way to share your story. You’re struggling with your health journey and need support with some major lifestyle changes. You’re a content creator stuck in a cycle of producing your blog, podcast, newsletter (or all of the above) just in time for your publish date and you need help planning ahead and setting up workflows so that you’re not always scrambling to stay consistent.

Here’s the thing: I’m a professionally trained editor with nearly 20 years experience. But, like I always say, the skills of an editor are strategic skills that can be applied in a myriad of ways beyond the written word.

Applying those strategic skills by talking with writers and storytellers about their craft and their projects is my sweet spot and getting shit done is one of my superpowers. Let me help you make great strides in your creative work.

  • Are you stuck? Get some time with me to brainstorm a solution.
  • Unsure of where to start? Let’s create a project plan with a completion deadline.
  • Contemplating next steps for your completed manuscript? We can jam on publishing strategy.
  • Need to talk about making healthy choices? It’s one of my favorite conversations to have.
  • Ready to get organized with a solid plan and strategy for your content? Planning, strategizing, and implementing systems are my sweet spot.

Regardless of whether you’re working on a book manuscript, a larger media storytelling project, making lifestyle changes to support your health, or leveling up your ongoing content program here’s my approach:

  • Listen
  • Ask questions
  • Create a plan
  • Help you make decisions
  • Keep you accountable
  • Support your forward movement toward accomplishing your goal

We can start small with a single office hour appointment. But if you’re ready to hit the ground running the best value is a six-session package for a 15% discount ($330 per session).

 

 

 

writing workshops

You write personal stories, but you're not sure what to call them. You've drafted a memoir or a collection of essays, and you're looking for a safe place to share them and get feedback. You're looking for a community of creative nonfiction writers. I offer six-week creative nonfiction writing workshops in Sacramento, CA & online.  

editorial support

You need help managing your editorial calendar and meeting your production deadlines. You need ideas on aligning your multiple channels. You have draft one of a nonfiction manuscript and you're not sure what to do with it. I can help with editorial content management, and select projects for developmental & copy editing.

office hours

You need to talk through the structure of your essay/book/manuscript. You need a strategy brainstorming session. You want to chat about food as medicine and changing your diet with someone who's been there. Sure! I can do all of those things during what I call my office hours. Book a 1-hour phone call/skype meeting with me.
