Why am I offering Authorship coaching?

Plenty of people say they want to write a book, but it takes effort and dedication to make it happen. There are a million other work and life priorities that need your attention.


I wrote and published my first book by writing every Saturday. It took commitment but the pages added up, and soon I had a full manuscript, an agent and a book deal.


For 25 years I’ve worked as an author, editor, story director, and university creative writing instructor as well as a coach, and what writers need most is the tenacity and courage to see their visions through. My passion is helping writers and leaders like you to develop books and realize publishing dreams. Together we’re creating change.


I’m here to support and guide you so that book idea becomes a reality.

What my authors are saying

"Your belief in my book made all the difference, Suzanne. Your skilled editing helped me clarify, develop, rearrange, and write boldly. And then just personally now, as a writer, I feel creatively capable—beyond this one manuscript—equipped with your feedback and guidance. I love your collaborative, supportive approach, and am so grateful for the difference you've made in this book and those to come. I'll make sure I'm fortunate enough to work with you again."

Katie Lewis, 2022 

“Working with Suzanne is great experience. You get the sense she really cares about your story and wants to help you bring it to its fullest potential. Where before I was confused and overwhelmed, now I feel good again about the direction it is taking. I highly recommend Suzanne." 
Mary Davis, 2020
