I've always wanted to be a writer. When I was younger, I wrote stories, kept a journal, scribbled poems and parts of poems on pads of paper. (See what I did there?) But I didn't become a "working" writer until I'd had a successful career as a lawyer, birthed two children, and hit the big [Insert milestone birthday].
Now I write most days, in a loft that overlooks a garden in the backyard. This is my space. My room with a view. Something every writer should have.
Something else every writer should have is honest, productive, and thoughtful feedback about his or her work. If we're lucky, we can lean on other writer friends every now and then. But when it's time to get serious, it's time to find an editor or coach.
As your writer/editor/coach, I'll teach you everything I've learned about the craft, the profession, and the literary landscape. If I don't know the answer, I'll know where to find it.
I want to help you achieve your writerly goals—whether you're writing your first college admissions essay or your first book. And if you're an emerging writer, you can count on me for support, encouragement and the best critiquing skills this side of the Potomac.
