Whether you are looking for guidance as you begin
your book, or are a seasoned writer looking for ideas on how to
market your book or articles, my diverse background provides a solid
foundation for helping you find focus and fulfillment.
I call myself the "Book Coach" because like a sports
coach, I can take you from novice to pro in the book-writing process.
It's easy to get overwhelmed by the many tasks involved in writing
and publishing a book. Coaching helps break things down into manageable
chunks, and also sets up a process of accountability. Together,
we'll achieve your dream of becoming a published author.
Since 1984, I have helped hundreds of people gain
clarity about their writing. As a technical translator from German
into English, an international English instructor, and production
manager for a publishing house, my path has been one of multicultural
communication and writing. Much of my work has centered around a
technique called mind-mapping, which I have used to enhance my own
creativity, write books and articles, and build my businesses. Today,
I teach workshops for writers and authors, and work with individuals
based on this technique and the experience gained over the years.
You may view my biography as an outline or as a mind-map.
