For over fifteen years I have found joy, purpose, and great inner reward in helping people share their expertise, tell their stories, and express themselves well through the written word. As a book coach, I work closely with you to bring your book into the world.

I have worked with Jane for around ten years. Her knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail and creativity are unbelievable! Jane has a unique talent of being able to ask questions and probe to bring out ‘the story’.


Thank you so much. It is so delightful to work with someone as reliable as you! I just integrated all your corrections in the text. I am really impressed at your work —​ I think you really understood what I am trying to convey. Thank you especially for the lovely suggestion ‘to take something with a grain of salt,’ which perfectly renders what I meant.
