Writing Coach and Published Author
Welcome! I’m Deb Donnell. Do you have a life story trapped inside of you?
- It may be an autobiography you’d like to write and publish commercially.
- Alternatively it could be a personal memoir you’d like to gift to your descendants.
- Or you may have researched your family history and want to create a permanent legacy?
- Perhaps your story documents your professional expertise which you want to share with colleagues, clients or like-minded readers.
I also offer online and local workshops and courses to teach you how to preserve your personal stories and valuable knowledge. If you are interested in releasing your trapped story then I can help you.
How May I Help You?
“81 percent of people feel that they have a book in them — and should write it.”
—2002 Survey reported in the New York Times
If you are among the 81 percent, I’m here to help you release your trapped story. The first step in our journey together will be to set realistic expectations. We will decide who you are writing the book for, and what success looks like for you.
This is crucial, because assuming the above 81 percent all start writing their book, only 3 percent will actually finish it. So in order for you to not die with your life story trapped inside you, it’s best to engage the services of a professional.
Fortunately, technology allows me to work with clients all over the world. So you don’t have to live locally to work with me. We can easily connect and work together via the Internet or telephone.
