Coaching You’re stuck, I can help. We’ll find out how together.


“Naomi taught me. I wanted to learn, not have someone just do it and hand it back.”

Geri Speiler, Author, Taking Aim at the President


Collaborating/ghostwriting  Your book idea is great, but you don’t have the time or experience to write it. I enjoy the challenge of tackling a new topic and capturing the author's authentic voice: your book, the way you would write it if you only had the time.


“You always surprise me. You really come through. You are terrific.”

Mani Feniger, author and repeat client



Development editing  There’s a book in there somewhere! I’ll help you prune your thicket of ideas to discover your core concepts and the best way to present them.


 “Naomi brings a sanity-check approach to her writing, asking,

‘Does this really make sense to other humans?’”

Peter Montgomery, Sr. Project Manager, SolutionSet



Book proposals  An effective proposal allows editors and agents to see your book not only as the creative gem you know it is, but as a viable product they can sell. I’ll help you describe your book in terms the market understands, and write a proposal that compels editors and agents to ask for more.


Websites When you only have a few seconds to grab the reader’s attention, every word counts. We work together to craft your message in a way that reflects your organization’s personality.


”Our appreciation for the enthusiasm and skill you brought to this project cannot be overstated!”

Felicia Poe, Manager, Assessment, Design & Production, University of California Digital Library
