As a book collaborator and coach, I have helped create six bestselling memoirs and life guides.
When I work with you, my goal is to help you create a book that is true to your voice. At the end of the journey, when you are recording your bestselling audio version, your book--your story—has your rhythm and language. Readers respond to that authenticity, and the quality of the work ensures you a larger platform.
After surviving this bowl cut, I majored in English at Wesleyan University. My junior year, I was chosen to do an intensive program in classical studies at Sussex University in Brighton. For my senior thesis at Wesleyan I did an analysis of classical models of the Hero in contemporary memoirs.
I started work at POZ, an advocacy/lifestyle magazine for people with HIV. POZ was called “easily as plush as Vanity Fair” by the New York Times, and “literate and provocative” by the Los Angeles Times. It was at POZ that I discovered my love of helping people record their life stories. After that, I did mainstream magazine writing for about a decade. I learned how to tell stories to a mass audience, and also how to make the reader feel they are just sitting with you over coffee.
