"As a result of Savannah’s stellar coaching, I landed a book contract with Avon/HarperCollins!"
"Savannah is a great coach! She has an amazing sense of story, and it shows in the way she coaches writers. My favorite part of working with Savannah was the weekly call where I could discuss my work and brainstorm any necessary changes or tweaks to my current draft. I recommend working with a book coach because it’s a great way to learn the craft of storytelling quickly without having to spend years toiling at it alone. As a result of Savannah’s stellar coaching, I landed a book contract with Avon/HarperCollins!"

How Can I Help You Write Your Novel?
I want someone to help keep me on track and give me ongoing feedback and support while I finish my draft.
I want someone to read my complete draft and give me guidance on how to improve my story.
I want to DIY my novel, so I want to take an online writing course that lets me learn and do the work at my own pace.
"With Savannah’s help, I was able to finish a draft and have fun with my writing again."
"Savannah helped me to finally finish a novel that I had been working on for five years–I can’t believe it! I started writing this story multiple times but could never get past the first couple of chapters. I was constantly feeling overwhelmed, near tears, and frustrated with my lack of progress. With Savannah’s help, I was able to finish a draft and have fun with my writing again. I’m so grateful to have worked with her and would definitely recommend getting Savannah’s help if you’re feeling frustrated or having trouble making progress on your draft!

My Core Values
✨ SIMPLICITY. I believe that the writing process doesn't have to be overwhelming. Through my blog posts, podcast episodes, and online courses, I break down the process of writing a book into simple and actionable steps so that more people can finish their drafts and get their stories out into the world.
✨ EDUCATION. I believe that anyone can write a book, but it's not something that we were taught how to do in school (even if you got an MFA!). My mission is to teach writers how to write, edit, and publish stories they feel proud of without the doubt, frustration, and overwhelm that stops most people in their tracks.
✨ COURAGE. I believe that writers are real-life superheroes, and that they have the power to change the world with their stories. As an editor and a book coach, it's my goal to help every single writer I work with develop the confidence and the courage to share their message with the world—and have fun doing it!
✨ KINDNESS. I believe in leading with kindness and giving genuine and honest feedback. As an editor and a book coach, I am to create a safe space, free of judgement where writers can improve their craft, make friends, share their stories, and accomplish their goals.
✨ COMMUNITY. I believe that having a community of like-minded writers with similar interests and goals is the key to success. Anyone who wants to be included in my community is welcome and celebrated—that includes those of every race, gender, sexuality, religion, size, age, disability, or genre/writing topic.
a few fun facts about me...
👉 I LOVE animals! My three pups, Luna, Forrest, and Hudson are my best friends, and they constantly make me smile. You can see more photos of them on Instagram!
👉 As an avid fantasy reader, I’ve been on a lot of adventures! I’ve studied in the Ravenclaw common room at Hogwarts, ridden on the back of a Luck Dragon in Fantasia, eaten Horneater stew with Bridge 4 (and saw a spren for the first time), listened to music at the Eolian, spent time in the Shire with Frodo and Sam, traveled north of the Wall with my brothers in black, been captured by Mordsith, gone Under the Mountain with Feyre, fought off giant R.O.U.Ses in the Fire Swamp, battled for Terrasen, trained with the Aes Sedai in Tar Valon, and more!
👉 I’m a Libra sun, Cancer moon, and Virgo rising. I'm also an INFJ (Myers-Briggs), and type 4 (the Individualist) on the Enneagram. Yep, I'm a bit woo!
"Savannah helped me cut through the noise and focus on what was most important in my story and I finished my first draft!"
"“I had a TON of ideas for a story but no idea what to do with them. I write fantasy so I usually get consumed in world-building or creating cool magic systems, but all that doesn't make a story. And it can actually get quite overwhelming. Savannah helped me cut through the noise and focus on what was most important in my story and I finished my first 100,000-word draft! So excited!"
