To the woman who was with me every step, word, edit and phone call of the way-- my coauthor Samantha Rose. I told you things that I've never shared with anyone, and you formulated it all into this kick-ass book. Thanks for being so cool and creating this with me. It has truly been a joy to work with you.

Samantha Rose should be in every author's (and agent's!) address book. Whip-smart, with keen insights into the marketplace, she is a true partner in honing a manuscript. If you're looking for a sharp, savvy, responsive collaborator in the writing process, give her a call.

I had the pleasure of working with Samantha Rose on The Suja Juice Solution. I could not have been more impressed with her work. She kept the project on deadline and turned in a voice-driven and well-organized book

that is sure to be a hit with readers. I highly recommend her!

Working with Samantha Rose is nothing short of magical! I have never experienced a more seamless and natural collaboration with anyone. She really took the time, interest and care to understand who I was and the story I wanted to tell. She captured my voice and the heart behind my content which, to me, was priceless.

Samantha Rose is a pleasure to work with- supportive, responsive, and feels like my teammate. From the moment my book came out she used her thoughtful and creative ways to develop my How Toddlers Thrive website, and has been the force behind my monthly newsletters.  Her collaboration is a gift!

Samantha Rose made this collaboration another fun and unforgettable story in my life! You have my deepest gratitude and appreciation. You supported,  encouraged and were able to express my thoughts and memories beautifully. As the book came to life, so did our friendship. I’m forever grateful.

Writing a book about another person’s life and experiences can be challenging, but Samantha has truly mastered that skill. In writing my memoir, she really got into my head to capture my voice and my experiences. Samantha is a uniquely gifted writer, as well as a patient, educated professional who understands the publishing process from start to finish.

As any of our former English teachers will tell you, we're not exactly Hemingway and Fitzgerald. Fortunately, our coauthor Samantha Rose stayed awake during her English classes! She spent hours with us, listening to what's in our heads and hearts, and turned our words and advice into this essential go-to guide for parents.

Tremendous gratitude goes to my cowriter, Samantha Rose.I am truly amazed at how quickly you came up to speed on over a decade's work and study, all with grace and ease, and translated it into a truly nourishing and transformative tome. Without you, there would be no book.

SERVICES

Book Proposal: Your finished book starts with the book proposal. This is where you outline in detail your big book idea in hopes of grabbing the attention of a literary agent or an acquiring editor at a reputable publishing house who says, "We simply must buy this book!" My proposals sell to publishing giants like Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Rodale and Macmillan,  St. Martins Press and the Hachette Book Group. I specialize in practical and narrative non-fiction book proposals that are agent-ready to pitch and sell (and often in the 6 figures!). In addition to writing full-length proposals, I offer private coaching to aspiring authors who wish to craft their own with editorial direction and support.

Book Creation & Co-Authoring:  

I collaborate with best-selling authors, celebrities, entrepreneurs, thought leaders and change makers. 

And building working partnerships is the most rewarding aspect of my job. This is because I'm genuinely interested in people's lives (fascinated and inspired by, really) and by the stories only you can tell. The writing process I also love, and that comes second, after I really listen to you. Once I've captured your voice and developed an appreciation for the story you want to share, the pages come together kind of like magic. Either I take the editorial lead or we work hand-in-hand, co-writing together in partnership to create a finished book that is a true expression of you.

Editorial Development & Doctoring: Perhaps you have a finished book proposal or a completed manuscript, but you need an editorial hand- someone to offer honest feedback and analysis, provide a sound developmental edit or thoroughly line edit your work. This is a crucial step and I'm here to help. By working directly with you, collaborating with your agent or acquiring editor, I'll refine and clean up your pages until they're rock-solid ready for submission or publication.

Book Marketing & Awareness: 

Once your manuscript is complete (whew!), the hard work really begins - you must generate awareness of your book and connect with your readers. Prior to your book’s release and beyond the pub date, I can help you create written materials for your marketing and publicity team in the form of  jacket, catalog and ad copy;  email, newsletter and branded web copy; as well as original marketing content for print outlets, social media channels, blog tours and webinars.
