Fill Your Creative Toolbox



Your workshop was so incredible that the coordinators have not stopped talking about you.

Let’s tell stories!

“I’m not a writer.”

“I’ll start that novel someday…”

“I don’t know where to start…”

Everyone has a story to tell. We just need the right tools to tell it . As an award-winning novelist, a former animation story development executive, a comic book-writing, cookie-baking, book-loving educator, my workshops will give you the straight skinny on storytelling: what to do, how to do it, and how to make it even better. Whether it’s the nuts and bolts of writing, navigating issues of empathy and diversity, or deeper explorations on craft, I approach it all with a heavy dose of encouragement and humor. Whatever your focus and whoever your audience, let’s excite and inspire them to do great work!

Before I get down to writing, I just wanted to thank the magnificent @ Sherri_L_Smith for her great @WritingPadLA class yesterday. Huge help.
