COURAGE TO WRITE. FREEDOM TO EXPLORE.

Helping writers build confidence, craft books, attract a tribe and rock the market!

I’M DEB – kickass intuitive and writing coach for the unstoppable writer who believes being broke is bullshit cliché.

Hey, if you want to be the starving artist, that’s cool. I’m just not your girl.

I’M HERE FOR THE WRITER WHO IS READY FOR A DIFFERENT STORY.

One that puts her in charge of her career, her life and (especially) her pocket book.

IT IS POSSIBLE.

And it’s Time. Writers. Knew it.

WHAT PEEPS ARE SAYIN’

Debbie showed me how to harness my inner genius.

Debbie is kind, energetic, centered, and ah-ma-zing, and she passes these traits on to everyone she works with. Prior to working with her, my art and business were extremely disconnected. I felt a constant battle between being creative and being productive. As a result, I shirked away from marketing, posting, and content creation, and my business suffered. Debbie showed me how to harness my inner genius. To me, that alone is a true testament of her consistency and results as she forges a path for creatives everywhere.

Deb's encouragement gives me the oomph I need on days when I'm all "why would anyone read anything I write?"

I appreciate Debbie’s eye for story detail and her ability to see the diamond-in-the-rough regarding any of my story ideas. Her encouragement gives me the oomph I need on days when I’m all “why would anyone read anything I write?”

Deb provides invaluable feedback and has such an eye for detail, especially in character consistency and story logic.

Deb has helped me in my writing journey in countless ways. She’s been a constant cheerleader, championing my talent and my work when I’ve doubted myself. Her kind words and encouragement have helped me continue to pursue my dream at times when I contemplated quitting. She also provides invaluable feedback and has such an eye for detail, especially in character consistency and story logic. Deb definitely has an ear for dialogue as well, and her critiques have helped me develop distinct voices for my characters.

Not only is Deb encouraging, optimistic and positive, she offers a unique point of view that writers need.

Deb is instrumental in my writing process. Not only is she encouraging, optimistic and positive, she offers a unique point of view that writers need. She has the amazing ability to recognize when something isn’t working, provide critical feedback without destroying someone’s creative spirit, and helps shape the context of the story into a better story. She’s also open minded to what YOU want your story to be, not what she wants it to be and helps drive you down that path with her feedback. What writer doesn’t want that?!

AWESOMESAUCE WRITERS

From aspiring to experienced, we focus on confidence and writing skills so you can produce-produce-produce while maintaining your sanity through the process (edits, critiques, submissions and rejection).

PUBLISHED AUTHORS

Whether self-pubber or traditionalist, we focus on growth of your stark-raving-fan list and increased sales. We dive deep into mindset, brand, social media platforms and tribe building strategies.

MULTI-PASSIONATE WORD WARRIORS

For the rainbow-riding, glitter-flying, take-no-prisoners writer, we focus on the integration of your biz (from your alternate passion) with life and writing so you get paid while building your writing career.

I’m a Molotov cocktail in Hello Kitty packaging who’s been writing commercial fiction for the last 7+ years, coaching peeps for the last 3, and firing glitter cannons for as long as I can remember.

(Okay… maybe not THAT long. I didn’t even know what a cannon was until at least elementary school, lol.)

I’ve snorkeled the Palancar Reef and stood on the pyramids of Teotihuacan. I’ve crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and shed tears at the 9/11 Memorial. And I’ve traversed my own personal dark night of the soul (read: posttraumatic stress disorder) to come out the other side with a few scars, a deeper love of self, and an immovable commitment to live a life true to me.

And now I’m committed to helping you create that for yourself.

(Not the scars part, the self love and live-true-to-yourself part.)

Best part? You don’t have to wait for someday.

ISN’T IT TIME TO DO WHAT YOU LOVE WHILE PAYING THE BILLS, TRAVELING THE WORLD AND WRITING MORE WORDS?

DON’T WORRY, I GOT YOU BOO!

(Whether you’re here for the glitter or to seriously change your life.)

Author, Tripartite Soul

“When I stepped onto the writing path, it was a huge leap into the dark. I didn’t know the beginning from the end of writing. I only knew I had stories to tell. Deb reached out to me and, with patience and determination, taught me everything from how to format a story to social networking. She held my hand (literally) as I was given my first critiques and showed me how to turn my weaknesses into strengths. She praised every accomplishment and urged me forward with each setback. She has been a coach, an advocate, an editor, an auditor, a brainstorming partner, an unfailing guide, and a wonderful friend.”

“Debbie is an amazing woman. She gave the perfect combination of ideas and encouragement, but did not make herself the center of my healing and growth. Deb is an amazing mentor, especially in regards to writing. If you’re looking to move forward and do great things with your life, she is definitely someone that can help you go far.”

Gen Smith

Gymnastics Coach

“I clicked with Deb in an instant! She had a gentle but bold way of showing me new ideas and making me push myself to reach new understanding. You will rarely have an opportunity to work with someone as thoughtful, present, loving, and hard working as Deb. She is inspired, friendly and caring and I have met few people who are as open minded as she is. I have grown leaps and bounds through her coaching and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to make a change in their life!”

We Don’t Have to Walk Alone

Day 1 I was terrified. Day 54 I was numb. Day 210 I was done. Really done. I-can't-take-one-more-step done. All I wanted to do was to close my eyes and never wake up to the numbness that had separated me from everything in my life, including myself. But I did take one...
