with Kathy Sparrow

Bo Parfet

Greg and I have worked on a number of projects, and this one was the most interesting and involved thus far.  Bo is an extreme sports enthusiast and mountaineer who climbed the Seven Summits––K2, Everest, etc. During his treks, which he initially […]

Don Johnson

“As soon as Kathy & I met over Zoom, I knew I had the right person to help me.  She listened. She got me and what I wanted to do. We started working together on a collection of essays I had written on Medium over the past 18 months.  She sorted through everything, organized things, […]

Laura’s stories inspired me, […]


Wren’s father and I were introduced by a mutual friend. The minute I read her poetry, I was so moved––many times to tears.

This lady rocks!  Jazz singer, artist, and woman extraordinaire, Georganne and I met through a mutual friend.

As a Dementia […]

Stacey Kirkpatrick

Like many of my clients, Stacey and I met at a Jack Canfield training, and when it came time to write her book, she reached out.  She is one of those brave writers whose story is bound to shift the perspective of many readers who may have had troubling experiences in childhood.  Here’s a synopsis […]
