Coaching & Mentoring

You have writing dreams.

You want to see your short story published in that national magazine. You want to finish that novel. You want validation by snagging that agent and landing a book deal. You want to see your book on a shelf at your local bookstore. Or—the most challenging and rewarding goal of them all—you simply want the confidence to call yourself a writer.

So much of it seems unattainable, and for so many people it is. But not for you. You’re tired of thinking and not doing, so you’ve finally decided to redouble your efforts and carve out a path forward.

But you need help.

I wouldn’t have made it 20-plus years as a published writer without help. And recognizing that you need a spark, a push, a few words of feedback or a pageful of encouragement, is an important first step. So here you are, on this webpage, wondering what it will take, really take, for those writing dreams of yours to come true.

It would be my honor and privilege to join you on your writing journey. With my Unbound Writer coaching and mentoring services, I’ve helped writers at all stages set goals, work diligently toward them, and achieve things they once thought improbable, if not downright impossible. Being a successful, established writer is not unattainable, but most of us need help–and a little luck–getting there. Oh, and that bit about luck? If there’s ever an industry where the phrase you make your own luck holds true, it’s the publishing industry. But it takes a lot of damn work to create luck, so time to roll up your sleeves.

I can work with you on projects of all sizes, from full-manuscript developmental editing down to weekly check-in and motivation calls. I’m here to help with whatever you need, and the most commonly requested services include:

Let’s connect and see if we’re a good fit. Shoot me an email (“me” at “”), or better yet, schedule a free, 20-minute Zoom consultation through the link below. I love working with writers and I can’t wait to watch you achieve the thing you’ve been dreaming about for years. Best feeling in the world. For both of us.
