"Working with Marcy was a DREAM! Not only is she a skilled editor, but she is also incredibly thoughtful as a coach and mentor. She truly takes pleasure in helping others’ dreams of being published come true."

- Kristin Dooley |

"I absolutely loved working with Marcy. She is so kind, thoughtful and patient! I was quite nervous going into self-publishing, which I knew nothing about, but she gently walked me through it every step of the way."

- Venus Martinez-Sharp | 

"Marcy was there to help me from start to finish on my children’s veterinary book series. I really appreciate how personal, yet honest she is. I want a good finished product, and Marcy helped me achieve that."

Author of the Veterinary Adventure Series

TEDx Speaker & Best-Selling, Award-Winning Author

How Story Empowers Kids to Shape Our World. Connecting to these stories we heard as children help us forge our future path. Stories can provide healing as well as a creative outlet.

So this is my challenge, use pens, hope, and words to ignite and nurture the potential of our children, and ourselves. Reach a kid through story, and you will change the world.

Persuasive writing and story opened doors for me as a child. I didn’t have enough support around me to help me walk through that door, so my early careers went in a different direction.

However, over time I circled back around and now I coach people on how to share their stories. I help adults, and children, stoke their creativity.

sharing your stories can impact the world
