What I Offer


Editing for Memoirs, Other Types of Nonfiction, Poetry, and Fiction

If your manuscript feels incomplete, not expressing what you want in the strongest possible way, I will review it in depth and see what your intention is for your project. Then I will make various editing suggestions to help you fulfill that intention. The result is that your work-in-progress will express your intention in a clearer, more flowing, more compelling way. And all the small details, like grammar, punctuation, spelling, word choice, etc., will be taken care of as well.

Price: $40/HR

Some Questions to Consider:

  • What do you see as your intention?
  • What kind of editing do you need?
  • Substantive, or big picture, editing?
  • Copy editing, focusing on smaller details, such as grammar and punctuation?
  • Or both?
  • Will your writing require a lot of editing?
  • Do you want a referral to find out about self publishing?

Contact me at (510) 465-3935 for a complimentary 30 minute phone conversation to discuss your writing project.


Ghostwriting Offer

Your life story matters, and I will write it for you. First, I will interview you to get the full picture of your life. After the interviews are transcribed, I will write your story, sending you each chapter for your review and feedback. When a first draft is completed, you will also have the opportunity to review it and suggest revisions, this time for the final draft, which will honor and celebrate your life.

Price: $50/HR plus transcription cost for the first three hours.  Then, if you desire, I can suggest a flat fee for the whole project.

Some Questions to Consider:

  • Do you want to do any of the writing?
  • Have you already written something that can be used as the basis for your memoir?
  • Do you want a referral to find out about self publishing?

Contact me at (510) 465-3935 for a complimentary 30 minute phone conversation to discuss your project.


Coaching Offer

Feel empowered to write what you’ve always wanted to. Beginning to write and discover your own voice can be vulnerable and scary, so being supported to do this challenging work can make a big difference. I will provide this compassionate support, which includes some helpful suggestions, such as ways to tune into your own natural creativity; writing prompts (suggested topics to write about); guided meditation: free writing; and specific ideas if you’re working on a particular writing project.

Price: $40/HR

Some Questions to Consider:

  • Are you starting from scratch?
  • Have you written anything before?
  • Do you want coaching on a particular project?
  • Or are you wanting to feel empowered just to start writing?
  • Do you want a referral to find out about self publishing?

Contact me at (510) 465-3935 for a complimentary 30 minute phone conversation to discuss your project.


Oral History Offer

Leave a legacy, your valuable life story, for your children and grandchildren. Savor pleasant memories, hold difficult ones with compassion, and reflect on the larger meaning of your life. I will interview you about the facts of your life. Then, after the interviews are transcribed, I will edit them and create a flowing and compelling chronological narrative of your life that you can share with family and friends.

Price: $50/HR plus transcription cost.

Some Questions to Consider:

  • Do you need an aid, such as photographs to stimulate your memory
  • Do you want to include photographs and/or other items to supplement the factual narrative?
  • Is there material that’s difficult for you to reveal and talk about that perhaps I can help you decide how to deal with?

Contact me at (510) 465-3935 for a complimentary 30 minute phone conversation to discuss your project.


Allow me to help you to express the poetry and beauty of everyday life through writing, whether you’ve already written something (and are seeking an editor), want to begin writing, or are looking for a writer to write your life story for you.
