Collaboration

You bring a unique voice, singular life experience, and desire to say something that matters. I bring craft skills and a stellar publishing track record. Together, we create a manuscript that connects your ideas with hearts and minds around the world. My task in every memoir is to disappear into my client's voice, crystalize my client's vision, and structure a great experience for readers. I help my clients craft compelling stories true to their brands and their souls.

 

I've done more than three dozen books in the past twenty years, and every project is different. I design the process around my client's needs. Source material includes childhood memories, personal insights, and deep-dive research. I listen, identify themes, capture language, and synthesize a manuscript. Sometimes I write the whole thing and we fine-tune it together; sometimes I plot-whisper an outline and provide guidance that empowers a client to complete the manuscript on their own. I'm happy to be a chauffeur or a navigator. It's up to you.

Confidentiality is sacred, and invisibility is my superpower, so I don't talk about my clients, but if you scroll down, you'll see some nice things a few of my clients have said about me.

Contact my agent if you have a book project you'd like to discuss.
