unlock your creative potential

"They've had a lot of practice opening doors before you came along."

I read somewhere that you're supposed to carry an old metal key with you to open doors to opportunity and unlock your potential.

As writers, we so often experience doubt beyond our control, but in life, writing, and publishing the most powerful act of faith is believing in ourselves when it feels the most impossible. For me, carrying this 1876 Neumann key has served as a reminder of my favorite mantra:

You already are.

You always were.

You still have time to be.

As a teacher and a coach, my goal is to instill creative peace, extend thoughtful critique and and honest praise to help my students grow in their craft, and offer guidance in the publishing space. These are keys they can carry with them through their career--in moments of quiet doubt and celebrations of victory.

The door is open, you are welcome here.
