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 helped me figure out very quickly a format and plan that had been vexing me for many days. I highly recommend this course!

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!

Honestly, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I booked the experience. I'd never had a consultation for writing before, but this experience was perfect. Dan personalized it completely to fit me and my idea, he was genuinely excited and shared his experiences as well as his advice and his ideas. While I felt very passionately about my idea before this experience, I left feeling inspired, elated and excited. The first thing I texted my best friend was "oh my god, I'm going to write a book and it's going to be amazing." Dan instilled confidence and joy in me and my writing and showed me new and different ways to approach it. I'm incredibly happy I booked this experience, and can definitely recommend it.

This is a 5-plus star experience! Dan was able to pull out of me not only where my heart really was, among several ideas, but build on that, so by the end of just one hour, I had way more than enough to get started with right away. He is an expert at sprinting over obstacles, clarifying the road ahead, and instilling excitement in your writing. I gained a wealth of confidence and valuable knowledge from our meeting. If you are thinking of writing for the public, this class is a great place to start. You will go away energized and with a plan to go forward right away. Highly recommended!!!

Can't believe how much creative work came out of that one hour with Dan! I honestly wasn't expecting that much! Dan is really supportive and honest at the same time. He helped me structure my idea, gave me super useful tips on how to write, and we practically created a map. This was the best choice I've made in a long time! I plan to keep in touch as I develop my writing, cause he really 'got me', saw through me, understood where I'm coming from and what I want to say. Dan is a great writing coach and mentor. Above all, I got unstuck and got my creative juices flowing. I feel very inspired, by speaking with Dan because I got my idea out of my head and got productive. Thank you so much!
