AUTHOR COACHING

PROVEN METHODOLOGIES

INFORMED BY NEUROSCIENCE

WITH THE LATEST IN CREATIVITY AND PRODUCTIVITY TOOLS.

Courses are helpful, but at some stages of the creative process it can be valuable to talk through your unique ideas and issues one-on-one. Coaching can help you blast through limiting beliefs and anything that feels stuck. Together we'll find a way through any impasse to what's possible. When your creative vision is supported you can fulfill your dreams with less anxiety and more ease.

Please note that some author coaches are providing generalized course instruction under the guise of coaching. I coach the way I was coached, because it's far more effective. I don't tell you what to do. Instead, I answer your industry and technique questions. Then we talk through and brainstorm creative and practical possibilities so you can choose the best solutions to fit (and further!) your project and your vision. Sessions address your needs and are informed by your wisdom.

I'm here to help you uncover and strengthen your voice so you can step into your full creative power. I'm here to help support your growth and vision so you can see your projects through, while navigating any challenges along the way with grace, compassion and resilience. I'll help you identify your next steps and encourage you to keep going!

STORY JAM WITH SUZANNE!

Not sure if the short stories you're working on need more zing? Need help with a novel's plot strategy? Trying to focus an opener, demystify a messy middle or write a satisfying ending? Or perhaps you need help unpacking and applying an agent or editor's feedback. Perhaps your story has run out of steam and needs an infusion of fresh energy, and FUN.
