Mentoring and coaching. Manuscript evaluation including big-picture response, as well as more detailed editing. If you are in the early stages of planning a book, I can help you to focus your ideas and to formulate writing goals with a plan and timeline. I always meet face-to-face with my writing clients to discuss my feedback. In addition, I am available to do book talks at your library or club about my own work, contemporary literature, or one of the classics.
