About Me

I believe it’s important to have a purpose. To be good at something. To use that “something” to help others.

I believe we can write into being the world we want to live in.

I believe in striving to live a balanced life. In living simply. In finding joy in the small things.

I believe in Clarity, Communication, Creativity, Compassion, and Curiosity.

I believe in the scientific method.

I believe there is always something new to learn.

I believe in love. Love is love is love, no matter who you are.

I’m an ex-lighthouse keeper.

I’m also a knitter, quilter, musician, performing artist, administrative assistant and bellydance instructor (among other things).

Did you know, there isn’t much difference in the space a dance teacher holds for her student and the space a book coach holds for her client? Both require sensitivity, kindness, trust, honesty, integrity, and a healthy sense of fun.

Whether as your book coach or editor, I’ll keep you accountable to your creative goals using a combination of tough love and laughter. And if you’re lucky, maybe a dance move or two thrown in for good measure!

More fun facts about me:

  • I’ve played clarinet in two orchestras,
  • spend the summers living off-grid in the Yukon,
  • had a career as an administrative assistant at Yukon College,
  • flown in an open-cockpit vintage biplane,
  • knitted dozens of pairs of socks,
  • sewn several quilts,
  • baked hundreds of loaves of bread,
  • been married 40+ years to the same lovely man,
  • have a very cute little dog named Samson,
  • and raised one awesome adult son!
