Accountability & Planning & Motivation for Authors and Other Writers

Writing is a mentally complicated process.  Understanding how to use your brain and executive function is equally important as the craft points of plotting, editing, marketing, and staying up on the business side of your books.

I’m not a traditional writing coach per se:  I’m not going to tell you how to up your word count, how to market your books or be your developmental editor.  Lots of people will do those and do it well—but I understand what these people do and how they fit into the process.

I have a special interest in partnering with authors who are tired of fighting their brains, whether from ADHD or other sources of overwhelm.

My specialty is using practicality and coaching questions. I’ll help you:

find the time,

explore and overcome resistance,

create ongoing accountability

while teaching science-backed habit forming.

I’ve been working with writers for over half my coaching career, both best sellers and aspiring authors.  I have an understanding of the writing and self-publishing process.  (Yes, there is a WIP, but I haven’t told anyone yet.)


1:1 Coaching

Implement your writing schedule, finesse implementation of a course you took, get unstuck, and schedule accountability that is not your editor/spouse/friend.

Amy helped me with a difficult decision about my author career. She guided me through a truly awesome visualization exercise that helped me see not just the ramifications for my author career but also how all of it was connected to my life. In just one session, I could find the confidence I needed to keep walking my path as an author and editor. If you need clarity for a life choice, I very much recommend working with Amy.
