Lost your creative spark? Not sure what to do?

Let me help you find greener pastures.

    Are you feeling burned out?

    Tired of working to keep up with impossible standards?

    Today’s publishing paradigm is broken! And it’s hurting authors.

    I help authors communicate easier by connecting their creative spirit with practical action. To do this, I use my over two decades as a published author to create services designed to reduce overwhelm and keep authors focused on what matters to them in order to cultivate creative wellness, prevent and overcome burnout, and create their own publishing career so they can thrive as authors.

    Discover your strengths and what’s working for you.

    Get help with technical things like your website and newsletter to take more OFF your plate.

    Learn to love writing again and jump over any obstacles in your way.

    The truth is

    The current publishing paradigm treats books like “widgets” produced in a factory and authors like assembly line workers.

    That’s a recipe designed to create chronic stress and burnout!

    And for authors chronic stress causes

    Loss of joy and diminished creativity

    Feeling like you have to do more with less resources

    Imposter syndrome

    Health issues

    (and yes, burnout!)

    You could stay stuck on the write – publish – promote treadmill and get (or remain) burned out OR YOU COULD

    craft the publishing path that works for you and keeps you telling the stories you were meant to tell.

    Let’s start this transformation by
