Your memoir is calling you.
You’ve got a story to tell, lessons learned, deep truths to share. But it’s not finished. Maybe your memoir is on scattered pages. Maybe you’ve got a rickety first draft. Or all you have is the dream. Wherever you are, Memoir Mastery can get you to a rock-solid story structure—based on the Storywheel—and the confidence that comes from knowing what you need to do to finish it.
Most people who want to write a memoir never do. Most who start never finish.
The reason many would-be memoirists never start is that they don’t know how to get all their great ideas onto the page.
Those memoirists who do get words out start with a burst of inspiration, but later, after writing 10,000 or 50,000 words, realize their story doesn’t work. No one, not even kids or grandkids, will want to read it.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Your Memoir Deserves Better!
What if, instead of reading craft books, attending webinars with 100+ other people, or winging it, you could have the exact support you need?
What if it wasn’t a one-and-done webinar, but a coaching program? And what if that coaching program is in a small group—three people!—so that you get to talk about your memoir every week?
It takes everything I’ve learned from years of developing corporate training programs. It includes the deep study I’ve done to make sense of story structure. And it leverages human performance strategies so you can make confident progress.
It’s not a coaching program for novelists, because memoir writers have special challenges. Memoir Mastery takes those into account. It doesn’t cover line writing skills because before you write, you need to be crystal clear on the story you want to tell: Where it starts. Where it ends. Why it matters. Memoir Mastery will bring you that clarity.
I know what makes a story work, I know what writers need to succeed, and after Memoir Mastery, you will too.
Solid story plan + Confident writer = Your memoir born into the world!

I built this for you.
Too many writing courses are confusing.
I believe in clarity and simplicity.
Too many writing courses squish “narrative nonfiction” with novel, overlooking the greatest struggles unique to memoirists.
I believe in honoring the unique challenges of memoir.
Too many writing courses spend too little time on your own writing.
I believe we learn best when we work together on the stories of our hearts.
