I’ll Coach Ya

If you’re on page one or three drafts into your novel or memoir I can help you get to final draft or keep momentum cruising forward if you’re still working on your first draft.

I have years of storytelling experience from a weekly column that ran for four years in the San Francisco Chronicle to the novel loosely based on my life entitled “Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk.”

We can set up a free 20 minute meeting via the interwebs or in person after I read sample pages and we can discuss goals and how to pump up that narrative. The emphasis is on story and character development and tweaking plot points for maximum punch.

I teach beginning and advanced novel writing at UCLA Extension. I thrive on watching someone’s aha moments whether in a class room or one on one. Storytelling is my religion.
