Hi, I'm Sue!

I help romance writers craft stories your readers will remember forever. My revision techniques are based in the study of human psychology and harness the power of transformative emotions. 

And I created this 4-day feel-good event to help you bust through any societal shame barriers holding you back from being your authentic self as you write your best stories.

I can't wait to welcome you to the virtual conference for romance writers who want to love the stories you write
