Let’s Work together.

Your writing deserves powerful public powerful readings.

When we work together, you’ll learn how to connect with your audience—and convert your listeners into fans.

You’ll focus on how to play to your strengths, choose your most compelling material, and deliver your reading, talk, spoken-word performance, or speech confidently on any stage, large or small.

Being yourself onstage is the best choice you can make. If you’re shy, be shy. If you’re outgoing, be outgoing. If you’re happy, be happy. Let’s collaborate.

“When I published my book, I did one library reading and it was a disaster. So I said no to other offers—because I’m a journalist/ introvert/ hate attention. But tonight I did a reading I couldn’t wiggle out of. Before I did my reading, I read your book in advance and did as you told me. It really helped. Brass tacks baby! I needed them.”
— Marilyn Berlin Snell, author of Unlikely Ally: How the Military Fights climate Change and Protects the Environment

Here’s a sample of a reading/performance of Ulysses by Tennyson.
