EightWeeks to Liberate Your Voice, Map Your Memoir, and Write Chapter One

I’m so excited you are feeling called to liberate your voice, outline your book, and complete your first chapter! 

Here’s the story: 

I’m bringing a small group of committed writers together to map an achievable path to completing their book in the next year. How would it feel to know that you won’t let another year pass without finally finishing your book?  

During our eight weeks together, we’ll craft a strong guiding outline and set a clear intention and direction for your entire journey, using the same opening structure as my yearlong Memoir Lab. My co-teacher and I will hold you through the emotional process of uncovering your most compelling stories where they live in your body, and help you create an energetic container to support that journey through completion of your manuscript.  

If you’re anything like most of my students, you’re highly gifted – a natural leader, healer, storyteller, teacher, artist, performer, and/or mystic with a secret identity as a writer. 

You’re also likely a perfectionist in almost everything. And although these high standards and attention to detail have gotten you far in your professional life, they’re not supporting your writing. 

You’re ready to liberate your voice and untether your creative power, to write the deeper truth of your experience and learn to craft it into a page turner. You’re ready to stop holding back from fully embodying your soul’s work, to bring your highest energy into the world through your story.

You're standing on the brink... 

You’re moving towards being seen in your full power, ready to be known, once your book is published. This both thrills and terrifies you. 

And with that inner battle raging on, another year can slip by without a book to show for it.

What if instead you had the support to set a clear direction, an outline and even a finished first chapter in a few weeks? More importantly, what if you had the energetic and magical support to push through blocks and trauma that once shut you down, to finally share your story with the world? 

You can build that resilience, and our coaching can help. 

Enter: Author Up! - Eight Weeks to Liberate Your Writer’s Voice, Create an Outline, and Complete Your First Chapter

If you give my team eight weeks, we’ll help you unleash your voice, identify your soulmate reader, write a table of contents, map a strong guiding outline, and finish your first chapter.

The most critical steps in writing a compelling memoir or non-fiction book occur up front. A clear initial intention empowers you with agency and a path forward for the entire journey. 

Whether you are invited to continue on with us in Memoir Lab, or you move forward on your own, you’ll walk away from these six weeks with an introduction or prologue, your first chapter, and a pathway to completion.


In our eight weeks together, you will:

  • Join eight 90-minute weekly live virtual workshopping sessions to create your aligned energetic writing container

  • Complete writing exercises and curriculum from Memoir Lab to identify your key narratives and structure an embodied outline 

  • Write and receive feedback on chapter one from me and my team of gifted Story Coaches

  • Uncover your true “author identity,” and your secret reason for writing the book (likely deeper than you consciously know) 

  • Land on your unique, individualized process for writing your stories and holding space for your emotional experiences 

  • Access to our Somatic Writing™ community including private slack channel and facebook for peer feedback, discussions and support

  • We will also support you with access to our many private classes closed to all but Author Up and Memoir Lab authors.

I want you to experience your dream fulfilled: your book written, published, and launched into the world. I want you to see how your life expands, the magic that follows. 

I know you're very particular, and only want to work with other driven and inspiring humans. Let us jumpstart your writing process with support that’s as potent as you. 


I’m a completion coach -- it’s the most powerful aspect of my story medicine. I’ve helped over a thousand people finish their memoirs, nonfiction books, and solo stage shows for the last twenty-one years. If you know finishing your book is the doorway to the highest expression of your soul, I’m ready to help you walk through it.

We’ll meet Tuesdays from 10:00–11:30 AM CT to build the structure that will carry you through a finished memoir or hybrid nonfiction book. Class recordings will be available and accessible 24/7 for review during the program.

I’m also offering a bonus writing retreat for clients who Pay in Full - A six hour Retreat with me on a Saturday to dive deep into your story and shatter internal blocks to progress. We can only support a limited number of writers at a time, so Author Up! and the retreat is first come, first served.

How much energy would you get back if you had a defined plan to finish your book next year?


I’m excited to support you in stepping into your highest self.  

With love and magic,  


Tuesdays, 10:00–11:30 AM CT
