I taught writing as a professor of English at the College of Santa Fe. I taught memoir to students of the Book Project at Denver’s Lighthouse Writers Workshop. I hold a masters in journalism (writing and publishing) from Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism.
In midlife, after recovering from a long, debilitating depression, I reconnected with yoga, which I first studied in the early 1990s. Yoga led me inward. I became a certified yoga teacher and began exploring and writing about our inner landscape: psychology, spirituality, meditation, and yoga. I’m writing a memoir about how travel and yoga led me to a new understanding of the word faith.
I teach online yoga classes. I speak to audiences about the power of yoga and mindfulness practices to transform lives. Email me to book a private yoga lesson or a speaking engagement.
In my free time, I hiking with my dog, Tommy, practicing yoga, and drinking coffee with friends near my home in Austin, Texas.
As your book writing coach or professional book editor, I will help you write, finish, and publish your memoir or nonfiction book. Let me be your guide, brainstorming partner, creative muse, accountability keeper, editor, publishing consultant, and lead cheerleader. Let me help you write and publish the book that’s inside you. Together, let’s breathe life into your ideas, write your book, and transform your life.
As an experienced book writing coach and professional editor, I help aspiring authors of all abilities and experience write and publish the book of their dreams. Whether your book is a memoir, nonfiction “big ideas” book about the lessons you’ve learned in life or business, or a novel, I can help you. Under my guidance, you’ll stop procrastinating, make progress, and finally write and publish the book that’s inside you, aching to be birthed.
Let’s get started today! Step number one is to send me an email telling me about your book idea. I’ll write you back, and we’ll set up a free 30-minute author consult. I want to hear about the book you desire to write. I want to hear about what has held you back from finishing on your own. And then I’ll tell you more about my coaching system that all but guarantees you’ll get your book written and published in three to six months. Finally, once you decide to invest in your future as an author, we’ll schedule our first meeting, and the work (and fun!) begins! Flash forward, six months, and, voila, you are a published author.
