I offer manuscript evaluation at $5.00 per page. My minimum is 50 pages, and I typically do between 75 and 100 pages, if it's a full-length work. This includes in-depth analysis of the writing (voice, narrative technique, self-disclosure, and structure), summary notes, and a phone or in-person consultation. My fee as a writing coach is $100 per hour.

I am also available for lectures at colleges and public forums; two-hour, all-day, and week-long writing workshops; faculty development programs in writing and teaching memoir; and brief residency writing programs. In addition, I am available to speak about the music of Samuel Barber in colleges, at conferences, and with music societies and groups.

I am often asked to do ghostwriting, which I politely decline. I only work with people who want to do the hard work of writing themselves. I can recommend one good ghostwriter/book developer: Bob Goodman.

Expenses and fees are negotiable. Please enquire.
