About Me

Turning Entrepreneurs into Authors

Maybe you’ve known for a while that there is a book inside of you just waiting to be written. You feel called to share your knowledge and your passion with the world, to stand out as a leader in your field, to build your list and attract more clients, and you are ready to make it happen.

The problem is that you have no idea where to start.

That’s where I come in. It’s my job to take you from a basic idea to putting a published book in the hands of the people you most want to reach.

How I help

As a coach, I help authors get focused on their goals and audience, establish a realistic timeline for their book, keep them accountable to their writing targets, and walk them through the self-publishing process.  As an editor, I work with you to ensure that your book conveys your message clearly and elegantly and meets your readers’ needs and expectations.

My story

In 2011, I took the skills I’d acquired as an English major and an employee at a university press and began to offer my services as a freelance editor. Self-publishing was just starting to boom, and I quickly built a steady business. Inspired, I began writing my own books (to date, I’ve published two fiction and three nonfiction books). This allowed me to reach new audiences and, just as importantly, gave me the opportunity to see the self-publishing world from the author’s point of view.

Along the way, I began to realize how easy it is to get overwhelmed. There is just SO MUCH advice out there about writing and publishing. Some of it’s good. Some of it’s bad. A lot of it is confusing, even contradictory, and surprisingly little is targeted specifically toward people who are trying to use a book to build their businesses.

With one foot in the publishing world and one foot in the entrepreneurial world, I know where you’re coming from as both a writer and an entrepreneur, and I’ll make sure your book represents you and your business the way you want it to.
