What you'll do

What better thing to do in social isolation than start writing the book you’ve always wanted to?

*Please note: this is a private ‘1:1’ session, just for you and your ideas*

As your personal writing 'whisperer', I’ll help you organize and focus your ideas in a unique, individualized session - specially tailored just for you. Whether you’re new to writing or a seasoned pro, we’ll explore a writing plan for you, plus brainstorm ideas and practical 'take-away' techniques to help you create and publish your masterpiece.

Write what you’ve always dreamt of...

• Fiction to Non-fiction
• Suspense to RomComs
• Autobiography to Sci-Fi/Fantasy
• Children’s Literature to Cookbooks
• Screenplays to Class Textbooks
• Poetry, Art & Travel Books
• PhD Theses & College Essays

Tangible outcomes include a personalised writing process & schedule for your style & genre, plot arcs & outlines, book title & summary, character development, chapter structure & titles, cover artwork & layout design, motivational methods, confidence building and much more…

Plus, tips for traditional, hybrid & self-publishing on Amazon, including eBooks & AudioBooks, plus promotion/public speaking & sales techniques.

This is an 'online' version of my ‘in-person’ experience, which has been called the “best combination of a master class and a coaching session.” You can also have a peek at some additional reviews below.
Other things to note
If you’re a parent or caregiver, you’re welcome to “sit in” with your child (or someone you purchased this for as a gift) if you want to help take notes for them.

Please allow for a few extra minutes at the end of your session in case we need to run overtime.

Dan listens well and then is a wealth of knowledge. We covered so much information in an hour. I was so inspired and not w ready and excited to start my first book of what I hope to be many. If you even just think you have a story, take this class, you owe it to yourself. I will be taking another class. Don’t procrastinate !!

This was an amazing experience that I’d definitely recommend! I purchased this for my daughter as a young aspiring author. She received personable, specific feedback and direction that was catered to where she is in her writing process. Dan's advice was well versed with tips on the film industry, publishing commercial vs independent, and brainstormed on the pitch statement. My daughter, was very excited, encouraged and motivated. I’m really glad I made this purchase and plan to revisit this experience in the future!

After hitting a roadblock Dan gave me an Insightful outlook into building a process into continuing with my ideas, creating ones I haven't thought off and a template that will hopefully lead to getting my story out there. I highly recommend Dan's guidance.

I only wish this experience lasted longer! Right from the beginning Dan's friendly manner and expertise made me feel comfortable and positive about writing a book. Thanks to Dan, I have a clear and organized method for starting my project, working through it and publishing it. His knowledge and creativity were so helpful during our session. This experience went beyond my expectations and I would love to meet with Dan again as I work through the process. Dan has the ability help anyone at any stage of writing.

It was a true pleasure working with Dan. He has brilliant storytelling instincts and knew right away how to help me break through a block I was experiencing in my writing. He gave me a structured plan so I know exactly what I have to do to finish my novel. Highly recommended - thanks, Dan!
