Let me help you tell it.
Your life has been fascinating. Perhaps you have built a great success. Perhaps you have survived stunning adversity. Perhaps you have been witness to world events. There is wisdom you can share. Let me help you craft and structure your story as a compelling narrative, full of colour and drama.
I can help you create a manuscript to submit to a conventional publisher, or advise you on how to publish it yourself, or even share it with a smaller network – family or professional – in new ways.
I also take on a small number of students with whom I work to develop their literary voice, in fiction or non-fiction. This involves regular meeting and coaching through the writing of a complete book.
I am an author and journalist. I have published nine books, eight of them fiction, and I have written for Canadian and international publications for over 25 years. I am well-connected in the publishing industry and understand its workings. I know what acquiring editors look for and what will turn them away.
