Writing Coach & Editor

August, 2002 – Present (about 16 years)

I coach writers to build their writing habit though my Called to Write Coaching Circle. I also offer development editing services and screenplay notes for sci-fi writers, and have worked with memoirists on structure and organization. I've helped a number of writers with their platform and website building work as well.


Story Development

Working with clients on story development -- plotting, organizing large quantities of story material created over several years, creating a cohesive timeline for a complex non-linear story.

Screenplay Notes

I've provided multiple screenwriters with developmental notes on their screenplays.

Screenplay to Novel Adaptation

I provided developmental editing services for a client who was adapting his sci-fi screenplay into a novel.
