This is the best time in history be a writer. But only one thing can help your story stand out: quality. Whether you are a debut novelist, a screenwriter adapting to fiction, or an experienced author tackling a new project, I can help.
As the Novel Consultant for Truby Writers’ Studio and a private Developmental Editor, I mentor a variety of emerging writers, USA Today bestsellers, agent referrals, Pushcart Prize winners and Pen nominees. Over the past twenty years, I’ve taught at the Writers Program at UCLA Extension, run workshops, held seminars and presented talks at national conferences. After graduating from the USC School of Cinematic Arts and earning an MFA in Creative Writing at Antioch University, my focus on structure combines with my study of prose techniques to help me find answers to your story challenges. As an award-winning author, essayist, and produced screenwriter actively engaged in my own projects, I also understand the struggle.
Here’s what I can help you do:
- Hook Your Reader from Page One
- Enhance the Narrative Drive
- Build Characters that Readers Will Root For
- Strengthen Your Plot
- Polish Your Prose
- Enjoy the Process
