How one-on-one coaching
can work for you

Do you have a writing project in-process — or want to start one — but need help moving forward and prefer more customized support? Do you want to bounce ideas off someone who knows how to create a good narrative and will focus solely on your work? If so, one-on-one coaching is perfect for you. Together we will develop a coaching strategy tailored to your specific needs and designed to help you achieve your writing goals. With your work at the center, we’ll explore the elements that make up good storytelling and what it takes to develop your author’s voice. You’ll learn how to craft your story idea into a compelling narrative that comes to life through interesting, believable characters. You’ll also receive writing exercises and prompts designed specifically for you.

"The instruction I’ve received from Andrea has been a breakthrough for me. It’s not just instruction or coaching she provides, but inspiration. She’s able to work from low-level to high, and her love of writing enabled new life in my words, improving my voice while uncovering possibilities. I look forward to more sessions with her."


Author, "Free Range: This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things” and “The Uploading of Bridgett”

Book Editing and Ghostwriting

Does my story idea work? Does my written narrative flow and make sense? Will readers engage with my characters, or stumble over dialogue? These are key questions every author asks. And whether you have a completed manuscript, a series of disparate chapters, or just a jumble of paragraphs, I can help you weave it all together into a single, polished piece.

I offer a range of editing services, from developmental and substantive editing (structure, plot flow, sequencing, pacing, narrative and character arcs), to copy and line editing.

And if you have a brilliant story idea you’d like me to develop and bring to life with you, I am available for ghostwriting.

Let me know how I can help.
