Thanks for taking the time to drop by from Twitter.

I am a writing coach and publishing consultant, and the publisher of She Writes Press. I worked in traditional publishing as an acquiring editor for thirteen years, eight of those at Seal Press, and now spend all my time and attention helping aspiring authors get published.

I write a once-a-month newsletter about writing and publishing, with a specific eye toward helping writers understand the important aspects of the creative writing process and craft. I also blog about the inside scoop on the ever-changing publishing industry at She Writes twice a month.

I work with memoirists, creative nonfiction writers, how-to writers, and novelists. I teach a bi-annual class called Write Your Memoir in Six Months with Linda Joy Myers of The National Association of Memoir Writers.

I am the author of Green-Light Your Book: How Writers Can Succeed in the New Era of Publishing, What’s Your Book: A Step-by-Step Guide to Get You from Inspiration to Published Author and How to Sell Your Memoir: 12 Steps to a Perfect Book Proposal.

Linda Joy and I are also the co-authors of two books about memoir, Breaking Ground on Your Memoir and The Magic of Memoir.

I am passionate about writers and writing. My primary goal is to educate, inspire, and help all writers get their work into the world—whether that’s by finding a home at a traditional press, self-publishing, or creating an ebook-only edition of their work.

I invite you to receive my newsletter. You can subscribe in the box to your right. If you’re interested in writing and publishing, my content will move and inspire you. See you around!
