Coaching:   $75/ hour with a five hour minimum to be completed within one month ( I do try and stay flexible and open to the needs and financial realities of the writer, so let’s talk!)

Editing:    $75/hour with a ten hour minimum. 

 I offer a few pages of editing at no cost so you can get a strong feeling for how I work  Minimums vary depending on length and depth of the manuscript or project.

All payments are to be made in advance and are non-refundable.
A mutually agreed upon, reasonable timeframe will be determined at the beginning of our journey together.

Timeframes are essential to this process. Accountability, consistency and dedication are key to progressing, flourishing and evolving as a writer.

Please call for a 30 minute complimentary consultation. It is no small decision choosing a writing coach and/or an editor.  If we decide that we are a good fit, know that I will give 110% to you and your project and I am honored beyond measure to be entrusted with your writing.

I look forward to hearing from you!




“I can’t say enough about how good an editor and writing coach Leslie is.  I had her review the first chapter of my debut novel,  A Thing with Feathers. Leslie caught many things in my manuscript that other more well-known and more highly compensated editors entirely missed!”  -Novelist and Poet J.John Nordstrom
