Author Consulting

As someone who works in various areas of publishing, I see authors struggling to finish their work time and time again. Sometimes life gets in the way, sometimes the creative juices just stop flowing halfway through your novel, and sometimes you just need a cheerleader pushing you along.

Whether you need an accountability partner to keep you going or if you need an industry insider to help you write a book to put in front of agents, I’m here to help.

Reach out to me so we can discuss exactly what kind of help you need and how I can best assist you in your journey.
