come to me when you've sussed out one of uncomfortable truths of writer-hood: Writing a book is really tough. And tougher still to do alone. Writing is about to feel a whole lot better...read on...


It won't leave you alone. You can't NOT write about it.

Maybe you’ve already come to terms with having a moving story to share, or your coaching work has lead you to develop a remarkable philosophy that benefits others.

You might have an agent, or even a book deal, in place now.

It's time to extend the reach of your business; and fulfill that dream of influencing and supporting way more folks than you are at this time.

What do you do next?

Are you stuck, stalled, stymied, or scared sh*tless? I get it. I got you.

A coach is the companion you need to go from idea, first draft, a pile of notes, or a dream ... to holding your book in your hands.

I work almost exclusively on referral. Have we met or do you know someone close to me? Drop me a note or have our mutual client or friend introduce us.

I only work with a few individuals from idea to book each year.

Let's begin with a casual and generous STORY SHARING CALL. We can about what you're working on, your goals, wishes, and stuck points. You can pick my brain about traditional publishing and proposals, how to become an author-publisher and what writing you've already done. I'll send you a follow-up email with some thoughts, on how I can support you and some investment talk (the money stuff). You get to decide if my style works for you, and I get to fall in love with your story and your message.

"You can't be too old, too young, too famous, or too unknown to write your story. Stop recycling excuses, the book is waiting."
– Patti

I specialize in transformational non-fiction and memoir, and I have extensive experience working in coaching modalities, medically-focused subjects, and business leadership philosophies. I work with authors who are interested in the traditional publishing process AND hybrid or author-publishing. I have team members who support me in editing, proofreading, social media strategy, graphic design, book layout, and e-publishing formatting.

I am a professional writer, nonfiction book coach and publishing project manager. I work with inspirational coaches, solopreneurs and thought leaders to translate their messages into memoirs, manifestoes, and business-boosting masterpieces.

How long will it take? Longer than you want it to. I'm a truth-teller not a miracle-promiser. You can't build the framework and content for an incredible book in a weekend, using a template, or on someone else's schedule.

I don't work on monthly retainers anymore because I've learned that when you've got skin in the game, and you've committed mentally to six months you'll work harder and be less likely to bail one month when it gets tough. (And building books ALWAYS gets tough.)

This intensive coaching relationship is for you if you're trying the writing already, have begun the work, and need accountability and partnership to develop your table of contents, cultivate content, and nail your first draft. You'll have my support weekly or bi-weekly along the way coaching you to strengthen your message, clarify your voice and enhance your writing style to reflect your personality.

You'll learn about publishing options, get critical feedback on your book in the marketplace and strategic advice on the business goals that should match your publishing dreams.
