Let’s Write Your Book


Your story. In your voice.

For nearly two decades, I’ve been helping people tell their most important stories in books. 

Drawing on skills I honed by writing for some of the most widely read national publications, I’ll make creating your book easy and enjoyable.

Again and again, my clients have expressed the thrill of holding, reading, and sharing their books—works that capture their authentic voices and significant experiences.

You supply the story. I’ll do the heavy lifting.

How It Works

I’ll customize the process of creating your book for the best fit with your lifestyle, project, and preferences. In four steps, I’ll take you from idea to finished book.


It starts with a conversation—in person, on the phone, or virtual—for you to share your ideas. In follow-up interviews, I’ll help draw out the details.

In collaboration with you, I’ll create a plan: the scope of the narrative, a chapter breakdown, and what will make your book special. Then comes a detailed blueprint for completing the manuscript.

I’ll write the book, chapter by chapter, sharing sections for your approval. Throughout, I’ll keep channels of communication open to guarantee the finished product meets your highest expectations.

Finally, you’ll feel the satisfaction of holding a finished manuscript—your story in a compelling, engaging package.
