Coaching for Writers and Storytellers

I believe in the life transforming power of stories.

As a New York Times bestselling author of two books of non-fiction and one novel, and a lifetime performer and storyteller, I can help you get to the heart of your story and provide the kind of feedback that connects you to your own unique voice and flow.

I offer creative coaching for both fiction and non-fiction book projects, as well as for live storytelling. I love working one-on-one with writers and storytellers of all stripes. Whatever stage of the process you’re in, I can help you mine the deep vein of inspiration and creativity within you.

Much of writing is a solo endeavor,
but that doesn’t mean it has to be lonely.

Together we can clarify your vision and develop the tools, craft, and accountability that will empower you to make your dream a reality.
