Coaching Services

While there are some tried and true hallmarks within publishing, writing a book for the juvenile industry is not a one-size-fits-all agenda, and that can lead to questions, confusion, and frustration. Maybe you want to write a young adult novel, but you don't know where to start. Or, you're in the middle of writing a children's picture book, but you have lost confidence about your next steps. With an evolving and ever-changing industry, it helps to have someone you can brainstorm, question, and consult with on your project.

The majority of my coaching is for juvenile fiction and non-fiction,

but I am also available for coaching in genres of adult fiction and non-fiction as well.


All coaching is done via video conferencing.

Hours available: 10am to 4pm Central Time.

Days available: Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday / every second and fourth week,

except in August and December.
