Why work with me
Writing is in the fiber of my being. Since childhood, I've been using, studying, and expanding my skills with the written word. It's turned into a life-long pursuit to perfect this craft.
Matched with my desire to build long-term partnerships with every client that puts their trust in me, it means I work long after our agreement lapses to help you reach your goal.
My best clients are results-oriented, coachable, and serious about getting their ideas into writing. They expect the best from themselves and from me as a resource.
They are candid and so am I - which is why you should not consider me if you're shopping for the lowest price.
What you will get is a terrific ROI on the book we develop and the long-term partnership that results from our efforts.

Author, Who Will Accompany you?
Author, Forest Bathing with Your Dog
"One of my main concerns was that my manuscript be put together well and that readers would have a good reading experience. This was my first book and I did not have any way to judge this for myself. Susan brought her expertise in coaching me to help me shape my manuscript into something that was clear and organized in a way that was interesting, informative, clear and even exciting for the reader. She also helped me clarify my vision for the book. I knew in my heart what I wanted to say but I did not have experience yet in translating that to the written page in a way that would be a effective and pleasurable experience for the reader. My book feels like an amazing piece of work to me and I'm so grateful to have had Susan's coaching along the way."
"It was my work with Susan that got me started on this leg of the journey. Our work together helped pull together the pieces that really moved it forward. I am forever grateful!"

Author, Third King and Guardian Angel
"Susan and her process brought my manuscript to life and helped me become a better writer. Our collaboration efforts were fun and inspired creativity which shows up in places all over the pages of my book.
I’ll always be grateful to Susan and proud of what we accomplished together. I can’t wait to get started on my next project. I am an author. Susan made me realize that."
"Working with Susan was efficient and productive, which is exactly what I wanted. Susan is a no-nonsense, get down to business editor. The work of developmental editing is not easy because your manuscript is being put to the test by a pro. Susan was kind and direct as she guided me to the areas of the manuscript that needed more writing time to ensure clarity and precision of information. And, she helped me hone the language for exactly the right audience. While hard work, we had a few laughs together in the process and got really excited about the future of this book and the possible spin-off projects. It was so satisfying to make those final edits and to realize that I was ready to move the manuscript into the next phase. Thank you, Susan!!"
