What Carla Says About Working with Kathy

“I have had the great pleasure of being coached and mentored by Kathy Sparrow. When I started with Kathy I knew I wanted to write a book but I didn’t know where to start. She expertly guided me through the beginnings when I was trying to find my writer’s voice and nurtured my resistance and struggles with firm but caring sessions. Her shared insights and knowledge allowed me to gain clarity, confidence, and excitement about being an author. I would highly recommend Kathy to aspiring and seasoned authors alike.”

What Tresa Says About Working with Kathy

“As a brand new author, I knew little about how to write, organize, publish, or market my book. Kathy led me out of the dark and into the sunshine of owning my story and becoming a published author! She connected me to an affordable publisher and a graphic designer who created the perfect book cover. Kathy also patiently read and re-read my manuscript, adding a perfect phrase here, restructuring a sentence there, contributing to my message that continues to reap high praise from readers and attract clients to my coaching practice. She is a leader in her field and a valued key to success for new authors.”
