Critiques and consults for writers of all levels.

I’m thrilled that you’re interested in working together on a specific project or perhaps just to explore where you want to take your writing career. This is where you can get some one-on-one love for your manuscript and/or you as a writer.

Picture book writers: Check out my online classes to find out how to receive the free download: “Is Your Story Ready for Prime Time? A 10-Point Picture Book Checklist.”


I take the summer for my own projects as well as family and friend fun. Here’s my scoop for fall/early winter. I will be closed for the month of December due to travel and the holidays.  If you’re interested, contact me now so we can get you on my calendar!

NOVELISTS: I am scheduling critiques or consultations for September, October and November (with November having the most availability) for the first 1-3 chapters only. I cannot take on any full novels until late winter/early spring 2019.

PICTURE BOOK WRITERS: I am scheduling critiques or consultations for September, October, and November (with November having the most availability.)

If that’s too long to wait and you would like a referral, let me know on the form!
