Biography Coaching

Are you working on a biography, or just thinking about writing one? As a member (and past president) of Biographers International Organization (BIO), I have helped dozens of biographers conceptualize their books, write successful proposals and pitch letters, use their time wisely at archives, select and hone their sample chapters, and improve the organization, flow, and tone of their manuscripts.  


The wide-ranging subjects of the biographers I've coached include: artists, writers, a U.S. president, religious leaders, a history-making attorney, a famous comedian, a porn star, and a clinical pathologist.


My own experience is with both university and trade presses: three biographies with Oxford University Press and a fourth published by W. W. Norton in 2022. 


I charge $90/hour, with a two-hour minimum, and I usually respond to initial queries within twenty-four hours.
