There's a lot of great information online about writing your first book. 


The problem?​

"How can you help?"

​Picture this: you're on a solo backpacking trip for the first time. You're nervous and excited. Have you packed everything you need? Too much?

Just as you head out on the trail, another hiker joins you. It turns out that she's a backpacking guide. Even better, she's headed in the same direction as your first camping spot. Relief floods you. Now, you can ask all those questions you've been worrying about.

First, the guide goes through your pack and helps you pare down your heavy load. 

As you walk together, she points out important marks on the trail, and poisonous plants, and offers some simple tips when you arrive at camp. 

You ask all the questions that you've been wondering about and experience a great sense of relief. 

​The moral of the story? You don't have to go it alone. 

With an experienced productivity coach for writers by your side, you'll experience: 

Joy is a methodical questioner who took the time to listen carefully to my answers in order to help me gain clarity on my writing business. She also outlined some concrete steps that would help me move forward in developing my business. ~JD

What will writer coaching help YOU accomplish? 

"Who is coaching for?"

With a bachelor’s degree in psychology and years spent as a case manager, I’ve honed my counseling and coaching skills. And as an INFJ, it’s always been second nature for me to help others to see the answers that lie inside through gentle but honest evaluation. Together, we’ll set up simple plans and processes so that you'll finally finish writing your book. With built-in accountability, fun, streamlined strategic sessions, and a listening ear, you'll be amazed at how far you can go. 

"Which type of coaching is right for me?"

You have options when it comes to coaching. Some people find the answers they need in a single coaching call. Others enjoy ongoing meetings for more complicated issues, accountability, and consistent motivation. Choose group coaching or 1:1 coaching packages depending on your needs. 

"How does it work?"

"What makes you an expert?"

My experience comes from failure . . . and lots of it. That's one of the reasons I most want to help other writers. I've been in the trenches and writing professionally for the past 15 years. I've dreamed of writing books since childhood. But I couldn't ever finish one. 


Now, with 10 published books under my belt (and counting!), I've learned how to work in a different way.  Implementing small changes, setting up simple systems, and being true to myself, have helped me have a joyful, long-term career as a writer and author. 



I've stopped chasing the gurus. Instead, I've finally found a way of writing that fits me. Customizing your writing journey will help you, too. If you're interested, you can read more about me
