Writing a novel? Looking for some professional guidance? My one-on-one mentoring program was born out of a desire to provide new writers with the kind of intensive, honest, and most importantly, practical advice I hungered for throughout my early years as a novelist.
It’s no accident when you’re so engrossed in a book you can’t put it down. Fiction is an art, and—no matter what genre you write in—if it isn’t understood, you won’t hook your readers through to the finish, and then all your wonderful ideas and characters will come to nought. Through the course of your mentorship, we’ll assemble a personalized toolkit, covering craft, research, inspiration, pacing, conflict, motivation, structure, and characterization. Practicing on your own novel as we go, writers are empowered to articulate on paper exactly what’s in their heads—all while getting practical, get-up-and-go feedback. By the end of our time together, mentees will have cultivated a sophisticated understanding of the art of fiction writing and a professional set of tools with which to get the job done. And perhaps more importantly, they’ll have the know-how with which to keep expanding their toolsets on their own—no matter which genre they choose to explore.

“The mentorship was unbelievably helpful. Even better than I expected. . .I started with an idea that I’ve had filed away for years but had no idea how to start, and now I have a fleshed out story, and almost a quarter of it drafted—quite a big achievement in a short period of time!”
“A truly wonderful course!”
“You are a great teacher.”
“Daniella – just wanted to say thank you again for the course…it was great. I have you to thank for getting me writing…As of this morning I’ve written 31,000 words so it’s full steam ahead…”
