Her clients are best selling authors who have earned PEN Awards, Nancy Pearl Awards, PNBA nominations, been finalist for the Washington State (and other state) Book Awards, USA Best Book Award and have been published in NY Times, LA Times, The Sun and countless of other literary journals. She works with writers every step of the way including fleshing out the original concept, structure and theme; developmentally editing the work; coaching on where to submit; co-writing the query letters, pitch and book proposals; converting manuscripts to screenplays and vice versa; navigating contracts; and setting up speaking engagements, book launches and other venues to support their work.
