Writing, Publishing & Story Coach


Ready to move from random notes jotted down in multiple notebooks to sharing your story?

Work with me, one-on-one.

You have the best of intentions. But life, it happens.

Don't I know it.

Between your family, community, and career, you just can't seem to get your writing pursuits to move forward.

You have the drive & undeniable desire to get your message out into the world. You just need support and a strategic framework to actualize that transformation.

Let me be your book writing BFF, your speech story soulmate, your platform building partner.

The secret to accomplishing this is to start writing. And keep writing.

But that doesn't mean you have to work harder, lose sleep, or lock yourself away (in a woodsy cabin or castle tower, whichever your inner writer thinks they longs for).

You just need me. And the right pen.

Definitely the right pen.

Through my signature coaching programs, I amplify your strengths and show you how to deploy them, so you...

Feel focused and productive.

That way you find your voice and refine your message.

I share with you systematic ways to build your brand, platform, and body of content. These left-brain shortcuts enhance your right-brain creativity allowing you to connect with people on a whole other level through your story.

All you have to do is take control over your life, your work, and your choices.

Let me take you from overwhelmed and scattered to sharing your story with the world.

Lela was completely honest about her own need to create and stick to writing routines, and that put everyone in the room at ease. This is not a workshop led by someone who asks you to buy their books and reminds you every week to interact with her on social media – it’s a place for writers to make real progress toward self-set goals and find community with others doing the same. I would recommend six weeks with Lela to anyone who wants to write more, start writing, or just see if writing is really what they want to do.

Lela is exciting, inspiring, and perceptive. I am writing again and loving it! This workshop was the most creative fun I’ve had in years.

I left the workshop with 101 (!) pages of writing, countless ideas and essay concepts to revisit, the motivation to relaunch and rethink my blog, confidence and enthusiasm that had been otherwise waning, and something else I didn’t anticipate I gained an intriguing, diverse, supportive group of writer friends.
