I speak on Hollywood history, Universal Studios and my ancestor, Carl Laemmle, who is the subject of the documentary I am making.

I also speak on writing.

Please contact me if you are interested in having me speak about Carl Laemmle or lead a writing workshop for your  group or school.

I have experience working with all ages of children - I can speak to teens, adults, seniors ~ and any age in between. I am culturally sensitive, having lived in Africa, Israel, Mexico and Brazil.

I speak Spanish, French, Swahili and Hebrew, but when I speak to a group or teach, it is in English.

Oh, and I also speak a bit of German, because I was born there!

Pay only $100/ hour  ~~ for editing and meeting time.

I do not charge for travel time.

To start, I schedule a phone consultation with each new client. We discuss a plan and what it is you want to achieve.

Once you sign up,  you are entitled to one 10 minute phone consultation per month -- free of charge.

You get  a flexible schedule to suit your time frame -- combined with someone who is a writer herself and who cares.

Plus,  there is someone checking to see if you are "doing the work" you set out to do!

The best of both worlds for a writer!





You can always make an appointment for a 10 minute phone chat - free of charge --



If you need ~~  not just an editor ~~ but a writing coach, then I  am your gal. A writing coach is a skilled writer, who is also able to consult with other writers.

As a former English teacher, I know my grammar.  I am also a writer ~~ currently writing a documentary script, author of a middle grade novel and web and print articles.

I will give you feedback and constructive criticism, be patient and listen.

I  assist with plotting, building a story arc, crafting living-breathing characters that jump off the page, and giving you idea so your story will come alive!

My fee is the same as for editing ~~ $100 per hour. I only meet for 1-2 hour sessions at a time.

Contact me today for a free consultation!
