Your writing deserves powerful public powerful readings. I can help you make those powerful readings happen. When you read your work confidently in public your chances of professional success increase dramatically. There’s power in the word!

When we work together, you’ll focus in on how to identify your strengths, choose your most compelling material, and be yourself onstage.

Beyond that, you’ll learn how to connect intimately with your audience—and convert your listeners into, as Seth Godin puts it, True Fans. It’s easy and fun.

Being yourself onstage is the best choice you can make. Play to your strengths. If you’re shy, be shy. If you’re outgoing, be outgoing. If you’re happy, be happy. No reason to worry. Let’s collaborate. Text me (+1) 919-949-2113 or click the round email button below.

“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
