Your voice, your stories, your books are valuable!

The world needs you to share your wisdom, knowledge, expertise, experience, and imagination.

We can effect change in the world through our women’s wisdom and Feminine Divine perspective.

Books and the written word are an important and effective way to establish your authority and credibility on your topic.

Writing fiction is a way to empower women and to share our wisdom. It is as valid as writing nonfiction.

A story or nonfiction book is burning in your heart. You know you want to write it. But you may not know where to start.

Writing a book feels like an enormous, daunting task! Then add in independently or self-publishing it, and you become so overwhelmed you don’t even start.

And yet, it keeps poking and prodding you. It may even be banging on your door, wanting you to write it.


There is help!

As a book doula coach, I guide, inspire, empower, and support women in writing and publishing their books and stories.

There is a process to birthing our stories and books. Each stage has its own problems and challenges that can bog us down or stop us in our writing.

The Three Stages of Writing

In this phase, we are conceiving the idea for our book and determining what we want to write.

We may have many ideas that we’re shifting through to find the one speaking the loudest to us.

If we write fiction, maybe we write a scene, play with world building, or think about the characters and their interactions.

If we write nonfiction, we may examine how to solve a problem our clients are having or think through a process we teach. We might comb through our journals about an experience we’d like to share.

By the end of this stage, even if we’re “pantsers or discoverers” in how we write, we’ve come up with at least a basic plan of what we’re going to write.

This phase is perhaps the hardest. We have a plan, perhaps an outline, and now we have to put words on the page and write our story.

First time authors don’t realize just how difficult this process is. We imagine just sitting at our laptops and banging out the words.

More experienced authors know how hard this stage is! We become stuck, the muse abandons us, or life interrupts our creative flow.

Our manuscript needs refining and editing before it’s ready to be published (birthed).

We’ve finally written the manuscript. It’s edited, and now it’s ready to be sent out into the world.

We’re delighted with the thought of sharing our “baby.”

But we may become daunted by the indie (or self-publishing) process.

What do we do first?

How do we get our manuscript into the formats needed to publish on the various platforms?

Which distribution places are right for us?

Holding the printed book you’ve written in your hands for the first time is an amazing experience! It’s your baby that you’ve nurtured into something wonderful to share with the world.

We can try to work through the challenges of each stage on our own. Trust me, this can be a long, painful process as we try different things that might work. And if they don’t, we abandon our projects, and the world is a far poorer place.

Or we can seek help from someone who has gone through the process.

I’ve written and published both fiction and nonfiction books, and I can guide you through each stage.

I believe in you! You can write the story or book that is knocking (in some cases banging!) on your door.

The story in your heart and soul that wants to be birthed is meant for YOU to write it.

There is a divine purpose for why YOU were given the idea and are inspired to write it.

However, the Muse will only knock and wait for you for so long before She shares the idea and inspiration with someone who will act on it.

Don’t let that happen to you, especially when help is available to guide and encourage you through the process.

I’ve developed a program that will guide, inspire, and empower you in whichever stage you are in.

There are two tracks, one for fiction and one for nonfiction, as each type has its own challenges and needs.

The program is tailored to each individual author, as each one of us writes differently.

Some of us just need someone to believe in us and to have someone to talk to about our project. This ignites our creative flame, and we’ll move quickly through the process and stages.

Others are more methodical or thoughtful. They need time to think and ponder before putting words on the page, and they may take longer. Neither way is more righteous or better than the other.

We write the way we write, according to our Human Design and personality strengths. I honor your individuality as I work with your design and strengths to encourage, assist, support, and guide you in writing and publishing your fiction or nonfiction book.

In addition, because of my business background, we’ll talk about and work on your business plan and developing your author business.

As an author, you’ve created a business!


I’ll guide you through this process as part of the Book Doula Coaching program to help give you the best chance of succeeding.

If you are already in business, we’ll discuss how to integrate your book business with your current business plan if you have one. If you don’t have a business plan, we’ll work on creating one that incorporates all aspects of your business.

If you don’t already have a business, we’ll discuss what you need to set up a publishing company. If you desire, we’ll explore ways to expand what you can do around the topic of your book. Perhaps there is a course or program that you can offer.

During our introductory call, we’ll determine what phase you are in for your book or project, then we’ll work together to determine the right program for you.

Some people work better with someone setting a hard deadline for them, and snapping the whip (so to speak, and lovingly). Others, this kills their creativity. They need a more flowing, flexible schedule.

While other authors like having someone holding them accountable.

Together, we’ll discover the way that works best for YOU!

One way I do this is to help you work in alignment with your personality strengths (Clifton Strengths) and Human Design. During your program, we’ll incorporate your Human Design and your personality strengths to determine the best way for you to write productively, happily, and healthily.

How long it takes for you to plan and write your book depends on many factors, such as how fast you write and how much time you have to dedicate to your writing. Some authors can finish in 3-6 months, others take longer. It will usually take longer if this is your first book. My program takes this into consideration, allowing you to take as long—or as little—time you need based on your writing process, design, and strengths.


I use a combination of Zoom calls and asynchronous app called Volley. During your Zoom calls, we discuss where you are in your process and your next steps.

Adding Volley to my coaching programs allows you to ask questions as they arise or receive feedback as you need it rather than waiting for your next coaching session. And it gives me the opportunity to check-in with you between our calls.

Package Pricing

For those in the inception and gestation (writing) phases, I offer three packages. Each package can be renewed, as appropriate, for you to work through developing and writing your book based on your individual processes.

* Full amount is due at signing.

Once you start working with me, the amount will never change even if my prices increase or you change which stage you are working on.

I firmly believe we work on and do things that we value.

I invite you to give yourself permission to invest in your dream. Going through this process may be the difference of you starting and/or finishing your book project rather than just letting it wallow as an idea.

(Note: Feedback isn’t editing! I’m not an editor, but I can let you know what is or isn’t working in your book or story.)

Indie Publishing Program

For those who have their book completed, or are in the Birth or Publishing stage, I offer a hands-on, guided Indie Publishing Program. In this program, we’ll work on preparing your manuscript for publication. We’ll determine which platforms and formats are right for you and your book. Once you’re ready, together we’ll set up your publishing accounts and upload your files. I’ll guide you every step of the way, showing you what you need to do to professionally Indie publish your book.

    How does the coaching program work?

    I use a combination of Zoom calls and asynchronous app called Volley. During your Zoom calls, we discuss where you are in your process and your next steps.

    Adding Volley to my coaching programs allows you to ask questions as they arise or receive feedback as you need it rather than waiting for your next coaching session. And it gives me the opportunity to check-in with you between our calls.

    How often are the Zoom calls?

    We meet face-to-face via Zoom twice a month on the first and third weeks. Currently, I coach on Tues, Wed, and Thursday.

    In addition, we’ll have weekly Volley check-ins, and you’ll be able to ask me questions or for feedback as you need. I’ll also be able to help you celebrate any wins you have as they occur. I love doing this!

    How does Volley work?

    The Volley is an app similar to Voxer, except we can chat via video, voice, or text. It’s completely private. You send me “volley” asking me a question, request feedback, or share a win.

    Depending on the time, within a few hours, I respond with a “volley.” We go back and forth, just like in volleyball, responding and conversing with each other.

    We do this until we’ve found the answer to your problem or you receive the feedback you need to move on in your writing.

    Using the video feature on Volley, we still have a face-to-face conversation. It’s amazing how much we can accomplish and how much I can help you in just a few minutes.

    Why do you use Human Design and Clifton Strengths as part of the book doula program?

    We can understand our writing process better when we work in alignment with our Human Design and personality strengths.

    This helps so you aren’t beating yourself up for not writing the way you’ve heard other authors do.

    We find the ways that work for you to be happy and productive.

    What do you need for the Human Design?

    For your Human Design, I can run your body graph for you, free. To obtain this, I will need your birth time and place. If you don’t have an exact time, an estimate, such as between 9pm and midnight, would work.

    How can knowing my Human Design help me as a writer and in my writing?

    Human Design helps us understand ourselves better and how we access and process energy, how we make decisions, and interact with the world. All of these affect your writing and your writing process!

    The parts we’ll focus on are your:

    • Type, which tells you how you access and process energy
    • Profile, which tells you how you interact with the world
    • Authority, which tells you how you make decisions
    • Strategy, which tells you how you create and respond to opportunities

    What do you need for the Clifton Strengths?

    If you haven’t already, you’ll need to take the Clifton Strengths test for at least your top 5 strengths. Currently, this costs $20, and isn’t included in your book doula coaching package. You may want to pay the additional fee to obtain your entire 34 strengths.

    Knowing your full strengths isn’t necessary for us to work together, but it can be as helpful to know what aren’t your strengths as what your good at.

    I know it’s helped me immensely to know all my strengths. I can stop beating myself up for not being able to do things that just aren’t in my wheelhouse to do.

    This sounds great! How do I start?

    The first step is to schedule an initial call with me. During this call, we’ll determine if we are a good fit with each other. If we aren’t, no problem. We’ll go our separate ways and have had a good experience meeting someone new.

    We’ll also determine if it’s the right time to work together. Sometimes, you think you are but may not quite be in the correct space. If it isn’t, no worries! You can always contact me again when you feel it’s the right time for you.

    You have my promise I won’t be trying to sell you on working with me! I only want to work with women for whom it is in both our highest and best good to work together at this time.

    I’d love to chat with you about your project and find out if we’re aligned with working together.

    Let’s Chat!

    Do you offer refunds?

    In most cases, no. When you encounter obstacles, you’re more likely to stick with working on your project if you know you can’t easily back out of your commitment to work with me.

    If a refund is an option, you might take the easy out rather than work through the issue. This book doula coaching is a commitment to your project and to yourself.

    Of course, if there are extenuating circumstances such as a death, illness, etc, we can discuss putting your book coaching on hold or something else.
