I recently had the pleasure of working with Heather, and to say it was transformative would be an understatement.

Recommended by a colleague, I did not know how essential my time with Heather would become. Her talent and genuine passion for guiding clients were evident from our first meeting.  She was supportive and nurturing and her years of experience empowered me to explore my creativity and strive for excellence.

Heather guided me through the entire publishing process from start to finish.

"One of Heather’s strengths is her ability to quickly identify the strengths and weaknesses of a manuscript. She gave me valuable feedback on my story, helping me to improve the plot, characters, and dialogue. Heather also helped me to craft a strong synopsis and book proposal, which hopefully get my book noticed by publishers.

I am so grateful for Heather’s help, she is a true professional, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to write a children's book.”

Heather really brought my book to life.

"It was amazing working with [Heather]. One session gave me so much confidence and the book took off from there." 

- Dennis Juarbe, New York, NY

I had my idea for a children's book since my girls were little, and now they are done with college! 

"I never wrote it because I didn't know the proper formula and strategy to write it… so it collected dust until Heather's expertise popped into my life!

Heather helped me with her course with a straightforward step-by-step approach to take the overwhelm out of getting the idea out from the head and onto the paper.

My book is done now. Once I had proper guidance, writing my book was easier than I had imagined. Finally, I was able to come out with a professional final draft to submit to publishers!"
