COACHING & CRITIQUING
Achieve your writing dreams with one-on-one guidance from an internationally multi-published author…
Do you have burning questions about writing, publishing, or marketing, or need help with creativity and brainstorming, motivation, productivity, self-confidence, and smashing through procrastination? Or perhaps someone to go through some of your writing and give feedback to help you polish and make it submission-ready or bestseller material?
I’ve been there, and know how valuable it is to have someone in the industry to help you out and provide tailored advice or feedback… sometimes it can mean the difference between getting published or not, finding an agent or not, having a successful book or not, and even having a fulfilling and satisfying creative career or not.
I get a lot of messages and requests to read or critique manuscripts, chapters, synopses, provide feedback on story ideas, have phone calls, coffee dates, or provide industry information and publishing advice. I love to help other writers, write articles and blog posts, and give tips whenever I can, but due to my time restraints, multiple deadlines, and responsibilities I’m unable to respond to all requests. So I’ve created time in my schedule for limited bookings to help writers in a more professional, productive, and beneficial way…. Below is a list of services currently available and coming soon for those who would like one-on-one advice and support to boost their writing and career and achieve their goals!
…But first, why work with me?
In my seven years of writing both fiction in multiple genres and non-fiction, and almost four years of being published, I’ve had fifteen books traditionally published with three publishers in a combination of ebook, print, and audio, signed with a literary agent in the USA, been nominated for awards, attended numerous conferences and workshops to further my knowledge, and worked with a variety of industry professionals on my own work. I’m also an experienced competition judge volunteering with RWA (Romance Writers of Australia).
In addition I work as an intuitive self-empowerment coach to help people break through blocks and live their best life, I have counselling training, experience working one-on-one with people from my past career in the health industry, and am also an award-winning marketer.
With this knowledge and experience I aim to provide practical and effective advice, feedback, and guidance, delivered in a compassionate and inspiring way, to help writers achieve their goals and become more empowered and confident in their writing life.
**I’m currently taking a limited number of bookings for detailed critiques and coaching (critiques are for fiction writers only at this stage, coaching is for both fiction & non-fiction writers). All services are provided via email to ensure a written record is kept for you and that you don’t need to take notes or rely on memorising anything.

- How long will it take to receive my critique or coaching session?
Critiques and coaching are delivered on a first-in first-served basis, and a certain amount are allocated each week… you will be advised on booking what your expected timeframe is, however most will be sent within 3-7 days unless otherwise stated on the website.
- What do I do after making my purchase?
Email your chapters or your questions as a word document to email@example.com along with your paypal name/email used for purchase – all bookings will be confirmed via an automatic email, and you will also be advised as to when to expect delivery of your critique or coaching session.
- What if I’m scared to show my work?
Don’t be… I’ve been where you are and am very compassionate, understanding, and am here to help you make your work shine, not to judge it. I want you to succeed!
- Can you read my whole manuscript?
Not at this stage. A full manuscript critique takes a lot of time and effort which I currently am not able to provide, but a partial critique can often give you enough to go on to make improvements further along in your manuscript too.
- Can you provide a full edit?
No, only critiques or coaching. I can however refer you to a suitable editor to help get your book polished and ready for publication if you wish.
