You have an idea, I have a strategy. Let’s write a book.

You have a vision that both scares and excites you.

You, AN AUTHOR of a damn good book?

Maybe you’re wondering if you have what it takes because
you’re a perfectionist…who procrastinates.

Perfectionism and Procrastination are present when you:


Put Product Over Process

Planning out the story and trying to fit your writing into your plan.

Compare Creativity

Defining “good writing” by comparing your work to other people’s work.

Try To Force A Flow

Setting unrealistic writing goals and accepting the possibility of failure.

Overthink Your Offer

Getting overwhelmed with the directions in which the story can go.

Sabotaging the creative process is the number one reason we don’t finish what we start, and why, if we do manage to finish, we’re not confident about what we produce.

But what if, instead of rejecting perfectionism and procrastination, we EMBRACE it for what it is…
an opportunity for you to stand in your strength (the end result of the book), and partner with a seasoned writer to get your message out into the world?

    Here’s how I support you through the writing process:

  • PLANNING: We’ll get our brain worms wiggling. Share your ideas with me, and we’ll produce a map for clarity and structure. This space is created to support you in narrowing and defining topics/subjects for your book, developing logical structures for those topics, managing the project, and identifying any gaps in the outline.
  • DRAFTING: We’ll spend up to 12 weeks introducing the book and topic in a way that makes the reader want read more, establishing the most logical angle and point of view, expounding on the topics, and focusing on flow and voice.
  • REVISING: You’ve finished the first draft, but skip revision, and you cheat yourself. In these final two weeks, we’ll ensure that you’ve kept your promises to the reader, check for flow and a strong writing voice, identify areas that need strengthening, add transitions where necessary, and complete your bio + blurb.

Why


I know how it feels to chase your dream with little to no support in your corner. To battle with this thing call self-doubt, but being willing to give it all you got in spite of having a thousand other things to do.

I published my first book as a full-time senior in college. And a police dispatcher, brand new wife, and mother of two. I was busy, stressed, tired, broke, and had plenty of valid reasons to hold off. I couldn’t, however, because the dream wouldn’t shut up. Characters lived in my mind who grew more real everyday. Aspects of my story infused with theirs and clawed to be told. I only had it in me to write a couple sentences some nights, but those sentences added up to paragraphs, pages, chapters, then eventually a book.

The morning of my first day of law school, I concluded law wasn’t my thing. Storytelling was. So I didn’t show up. Instead, I enrolled in an MFA Writing program to further explore this thing called writing. I mentored middle school students who didn’t know they had stories in them until they got a pen and a nudge. I returned to my alma mater to teach writing workshops before venturing out and doing a few workshops on my own. Then I took an even bigger jump and decided to pursue my passion on a full-time basis.

Every experience is a story, and every story, in some aspect, is a confession. Confessing can be difficult, but it’s always liberating, and I’m addicted to experiences and stories that release something in me and further free me up inside.

I teach passionate people

how to explore and express their experiences through writing.

Getting Across

Once a thick-headed, fast-tailed, big-city dreaming teenager, Louisa moved to New Orleans where she clawed her way to her position as a millionaire madam.

That was her first lesson learned. Even money costs, and the price that Louisa paid for her wealth keeps her up most nights.

When she returns home to visit her dying mother, she’s reminded of everyone she’s wronged, including her neglected daughters. Losing her mother urges her to make peace with her past, but making money is easy; coming clean isn’t.

Can she face her fears and clear her conscience, or will she return to the ever-secretive underworld?
