Coaching Services

I've been a professional writing mentor for over 20 years, working with writers of all ages since 1999. After ten years of teaching writing and working as an editor, in  2009, I formed Dream Your Book, providing not just editing services, but sincere and dedicated engagement that pulls not just from knowledge and skill, but from emotional intelligence, empathy, and intuition.


Below is my toolbox. My client and I decide together which tools to use and when to use them. Feel free to explore to get to know me better.

  • Getting Started

    Exploratory sessions where we get to know each other

  • Writing Review

    Analysis of writing or notes prior to discussion

  • Dialogue

    Honest, warm communication and close listening through video or phone sessions.

  • Research

    Information collection to help guide and teach.

  • Feeling for Resonance

    Holistic and integrative coaching on destiny retrieval for writers.

  • Strategy

    Goals, plans, and steps for writing, publishing, and developing platform.

  • Using Your Empathic Gifts

    There are no quick fixes for the healing of the spirit, but at any point we can begin to take steps in that direction.

  • Author Platform Review

    Analysis of blog, social media, and other aspects of author platform.

  • Shadow Work

    Exploring creative blocks in the form of fears, doubts, and self-sabotage.

  • Brainstorming

    Lists, ideas, mind maps, and the good alchemy of having a sounding board.

  • Navigating by Pleasure

    What feels good? What feels bad? We were taught not to pay attention to our feelings, but to a highly sensitive person, empath, or any sixth sensory person, your sensitivity is a GPS, and your greatest tool.

  • Connecting with Your Audience

    Thinking beyond the mainstream and feeling into what resonates. We'll learn tools to help you do just that.
