BA (Hons.), MA. Senior Instructor and Coach

Is this a good time to start working on your book? With so many people stationed at home during these unfamiliar times I've been fielding an increasing number of calls about book writing. I work with coaches, consultants, thought leaders, and innovators to write a high-quality non-fiction book that will help them share their message, enhance their credibility, and generate greater revenue through public speaking and other business initiatives. As an author, book coach and editor, I bring adventure into my work and in recent years I've been wine tasting in Porto, I've studied the labyrinth at the gracious Cathedral of Chartres, and I've gone ziplining in Costa Rica. I've luged down a mountain in New Zealand, and gone trekking in the hills north of Khatmandu. I've hiked among the ruins of Macchu Pichu, and picnicked in the south of France. I have become, just like you, a library of stories that have shaped my environment, my dreams and my hopes for our planet.
