Writing Consulting

If you're a writer, you may wonder why you need help from another writer. It's simple: writing is not the solitary endeavor many people think it is. We all need help to get better, do our best, and meet our goals. We all want our published works to be their best before they're released to the public. Who better to trust for that help than another writer?


As an award-winning novelist and screenwriter, I bring both a formal education and a pattern of success to my work and I love helping other writers reach their potential. There can't be too much great written work out there!
