Text for those who are in the next stage to identify...this is leading to FOUNDATION ( Example:

Maybe you've been trying to work me for a while but don't feel quite there yet. You know your craft, but you just need handy structured guidance. Then FOUNDATION Masterclass is for you.

some former masterclass folks said...
  • "Patti gave me a tangible fraemwork for how I could write a book, turning my concerns for 'I'm not sure I can do this' to "I can see how this might be possible for me."

  • "To have the support of Patti alongside other people at the same point in the process was priceless."

  • "I connected with you Patti and your genuine interest in what I was wanting to write about (even though it changed quite a bit) was clear."

  • "Story House is as much about the relationship you create as it is about the work that you do."

  • "Story House helped me boil down the mountain of content in my head into the book that needed to come of me."

  • "Patti taught me that you can write too early but never too late."

  • "On the days that I felt like a crappy writer, I was not the only one."


If you've taken all the digital support you need, then you need community.


This is why I created FOUNDATION Mastermind

The Foundation Mastermind is
  • you need a writing partner, with proper experience ... Another course isn't going to get the pages written if you feel like you've run out of steam.

  • You need a limitless pool of ideas ... Another tip, template or prompt might get you a paragraph, but what about the other 2,000 of them you need?

  • You need someone who believes you can do this and is invested in you completing the book, and achieving the goal.

Tips and tools. Wisdom and experience.

I support executive, life, intimacy and spiritual coaches and transformational leaders, teachers and speakers to develop books that change their reader's lives. The message makers. The movement launchers. Multi-books authors with the energy to vibrate the change the world needs to see.

Just this year I worked on over a dozen books  that have found their way with Big Five publishers, partner-publishers, small boutique imprints and entrepreneurial presses.

Some of my clients have shared their praise about how I helped them meet their publishing goals.
If you just started, I can guide you to craft a book that does what you dream it will before you head too far down a self-doubting path alone. I've been known to be a writer's saviour, especially when...

  • there's a stack of pages staring at you from your desk drawer. I can turn them into a publishable book with you.

  • you're not sure if the writing is strong enough, or maybe a publisher suggested you get some help? I'll revise it with you.

  • you have a deadline looming and you're struggling with time management and organization? Bring me in as a project pinch hitter. We'll get a stellar book delivered on time.

Friend, you need a book writing coach.
What do you and your book get when you hire me as your writing coach?
  • A cheerleader - confidence that you can finish is my main aim in supporting you on your book journey. I'm on your team, dedicated to your project and just as committed as you are to meeting the deadline.

  • An accountability partner - with a writing plan, a schedule for our calls, and me working on your pages every week with you, you won't ever wonder what to do next, or succumb to putting off your writing.

  • A brainstorming sidekick - I'm your coach, and that means that what we do together is confidential, and that you ultimately decide on how you want your book to work. You have a trusted companion to brainstorm with so that you point toward the strongest strategy and maximize your writing time.
  • A wordsmith - I work with you regularly, and show you how to enhance your content, deepen your message, and build your writing muscle with narrative, scene, backstory, reflection, dialogue and other techniques.

  • An expert - I'm the one who can see the process from helicopter level, and is focused on you getting what you want (self-published course companion book, a traditionally-published memoir, or the first of three resource volumes for clients)

  • A sherpa - I'll be carrying the weight of the tough stories, the arduous content, talking the content through with you, so that you can see what matters to your reader.

  • A time manager - I'll get you to the finish line (whatever that is) much faster than you would do on your own. Our timeline is the first work we will do together when we build your writing plan.
"Coaching with Patti is like having a personal writing cheerleader with a thesaurus and a scheduler instead of pompoms. But just as energetic!"

Dr. Mandy Lehto

This isn't a course, and I don't do packages that promise you'll have a book in some amount of time. If you are looking for a checklist, a template or a guarantee, I'm not your coach.

I won't be supporting your self-diagnosed writer's block. It isn't a thing. I won't let you get stuck. I will find a way to work with or around your time limitations, support your work style, strengthen your content and coach you through your self-imposed limitations.

  • your somewhat conceived book idea,

  • a clear idea of what you plan to include,

  • the book's intended purpose for you,

  • your life, your business, and the goal.

  • (we'll work out the rest together.)

This goal is yours, and yours alone. Maybe you've always wanted to be a writer, and this book has been simmering on a back burner for a decade. Fantastic! Let's write it! Your goal might be to self-publish the book to launch a business. You might be a writer who wants an agent who can get you a Big Five publishing deal. Let's get you there!


Oh, and I won't let you quit —because that's (in part) what you're hiring me for.

How does coaching work?

Coaching with me is all bespoke, customized to you, your writing process, or your project's needs. If you have a book deal and need 60,000 perfectly polished words in three months, you'll need more support from me than a writer who is giving herself a year to draft a memoir before considering how to publish it.

I fill my docket with the juiciest work I have right now. Because I'm a coach, co-author, collaborator, and publishing project manager, I fill my schedule as the choice projects come. If I can't block the time to help you the way you need it, I won't say yes. That's the way I work.

I base my fees on how much of my time you want (weekly one hour checkins, bi-weekly half day sessions, or daily project management will all have different time and costs involved.

Hang on a sec'...

If you know you're interested, stop right here and schedule a Story Intensive call now, or send me a message on the Reach Out page. 

Clients work on a monthly retainer with me, (none of that hourly logging or nickel and diming.) I ask for a minimum three-month commitment to hold your spot.  I review some pages of your writing and offer detailed feedback each time we meet.
