Testimonials –

With Jude’s guidance, I was able to carve out a better story from my manuscript. I felt more motivated than ever and Jude showed me that there’s more than just a character arc. With her help, I was able to make the words dance on the pages.
Charley Wilcock, Author and Illustrator

Jude mentored me for over a year and helped me to work on several drafts of my memoir. I would send her two chapters a month for her to read through and then we met online so she could give me her feedback. It was invaluable to have a professional author reviewing my work and giving me her advice and support. I genuinely couldn’t have written it without Jude’s mentoring, and I would highly recommend her services to any writer.
