Hi! I'm Sarah.
As an avid reader, I love a good book just as much as the next person. As a published author, I know firsthand the value of working with a writing coach to bring clarity to my vision. And as a book writing coach, I am dedicated to:
- helping you determine your audience and outline your topic
- guiding you as you write your story in the least complicated and daunting way possible
- supporting you as you tell your story honestly and completely
- inspiring you to find the confidence to share of yourself to help and encourage your readers
Whatever stage of the book writing process you’re in, I’ve most likely experienced similar challenges and frustrations to the ones you might be facing. And that’s why I’m here to help you navigate the proverbial bumps in the road.
Writing a book is hard, but writing a book without a coach is harder!
Combined, my own writing journey, my coaching philosophy, and my personality (INFJ), give me a solid foundation from which I can both relate to your struggles and help you share your story in a way that’s fun, motivating, and empowering!
Sarah will help you with your project until you are confidently satisfied. I will use Sarah for all my projects and highly recommend her services.
