The time between when you’re no longer a beginner, but you’re not yet in the business is the hardest. And no one can tell you how long this phase will last.~ Sara Zarr

When my writing life began all that mattered was getting published. It’s a lovely wish— and my heart dreams on— but what keeps me going is my fascination with the ever-changing creative process.

My toolbox skills have expanded and strengthened because of my ability to persistently show up, AND because of the outstanding writers who have guided me through the chaos of obstacles and cheered for my victories.

I created this space to pay their kindness forward because every writer is a work-in-progress, and every writer needs a champion. I’d like to be yours.

Whether you’re only thinking about taking on a writing life, or you’re quaking over how to navigate a novel, or having trouble telling your inner critic to scram, I’m here to help you move onward & upward and to write on.
