About Me

I'm a fan of great stories

This is why I focus on writing coaching. I believe great writing can be taught and I share everything I've learned about telling great stories. I teach you about the four pillars of storytelling (plot, pacing, characters, and world-building) and how to improve them in your book.

Caren has a sharp eye for story structure. She did a great job helping me restructure my book for impact and pacing--and pointed to a possible plot twist even I didn't see coming.

I chose Caren to project manage and edit my recent indie book. She's professional, efficient, knowledgeable about the publishing industry, and most importantly, responsive.

Caren did a line edit of my novel and made it far better. Her eagle eye caught inconsistencies, inaccuracies, and grammatical errors. I recommend Caren's eagle eye and capable hand.
