Getting Started

Exploratory sessions where we get to know each other

About this Service

Let's get to know each other. We can use Zoom, Google Meet, whatever video chat device is easiest for you, or we can simply talk by phone. You'll tell me about your writing project(s), goals, where you think you need help, and I'll answer your questions, tell you a little bit about my approach, and we'll see if we're a good fit.

My Approach

I've been a professional writing mentor for over 20 years. I have worked with hundreds of writers on all aspects of craft. What I've learned, more than anything, is discernment. As an editor, this means being very thoughtful about how I explain your analysis of a client's work; and as a coach, this means being very intuitive about the guidance you offer, and how you offer it. Just as important is that the coach and client are a good fit.

Cost & Payment Options

Cost is $50/hour for the first three sessions (which tend to be exploratory), and $50 - $150/hour after that (depending on the nature of the coaching, and if the client has financial needs). Time reading and reviewing work is billed at the same rate as meetings.


Ready to start? Tell me about your writing, obstacles, spiritual tools, whatever you think would help me best understand you.


I'll email you back and answer any questions. If I think I can help you, we'll set up an exploratory video or phone session.


We'll discuss your projects, get to know each other, and I'll give you some preliminary coaching to get you started!
