Overview

It is my joy to assist and support consciousness leaders in birthing their books. I have experience with both seasoned, successful and first-time authors--and authors working with major publishers, as well as those who are self-publishing.

I see my job as assisting you to bring your message, story and voice forward in a way that's fully yours, and the very best it can be.

I can help you develop your story or narrative, make your lines sing (whether you are a native English speaker or this is a second or third language for you), and get the style, grammar and details perfect for your voice and story.

I've co-led international movement and consciousness workshops, worked with colleagues from diverse cultures, studied and lived in France, and taught English as a Second Language to university students of many native languages and love to help your sentences "land" in English.

I have also helped create and edit successful book proposals and can assist you with yours.

"Nyei has been an incredible support during the writing of my first book. Her expert editing struck the perfect balance between letting me find (and keep) my own voice and making sentences and chapters flow. When I was under a tight deadline she returned chapters quickly. I found working with Nyei easeful and productive and can highly recommend her work."

​Michaela Boehm, author of The Wild Woman's Way, Atria Books/ Simon & Schuster, August, 2018

by Carlos Castaneda

With The Art of Dreaming one can appreciate, as Carlos Castaneda did, how finding the way to alternate realities through the consciousness of dreams is the essence of the great sorcerers; how ancient, remarkable, and sometimes dangerous beings live among us; how don Juan' s training allows two or more people to dream and explore together; how using " the fourth gate" of dreams leads to a two-w... read more
