Is this you?
You’ve started your novel ten different times, but you can’t seem to get past the first few chapters.
Maybe you have a story you want to tell – or some great characters marching around in your head – but every time you sit down to write, you feel stumped.
Or maybe you’ve written a novel, but you know it could be better. You’re ready to revise, but you’re not sure where to start.
If any of these sound like your situation, I can help.

Want one-on-one help?
I teach creative writing classes and work one-on-one with writers. I can help you start a new novel, revise an old one, or push through a manuscript that has stalled halfway. I specialize in Young Adult and Middle Grade fiction, but I’ll take on the right adult novel project as well.
Option 1: Story Coaching
Send me your 1-page synopsis and up to 4,000 additional words about your novel. Tell me exactly what you think I need to know in order to help you: what you’ve written so far, where you think you’re going with the story/characters, what’s giving you trouble, etc.
I will provide detailed feedback and ideas about your plot, characters, conflict, and more. I will then give you suggestions about where to go from here and point you towards helpful resources.
If you have questions about my feedback, or want to chat about your story, add on a 30-minute Skype call or phone call for only $10!

Option 2: Beta Reader Feedback
Send me your entire novel. I will provide detailed feedback on your overall manuscript with notes and ideas about plotting and structure, character, dialogue, point of view, summary versus scene, and other major areas of craft. I will suggest revision strategies and provide resources to help you take the next steps towards your ultimate goal.
For a very reasonable price, you will receive:
- in-text comments on your manuscript
- a comprehensive, written critique letter
- a follow-up phone call or email with me
Prices vary depending on manuscript length but are as low as $400 for a full novel critique.
