  • Coach & Mentor – Susan guides the project, keeps you focused and moving, schedules and sets periodic targets so as to achieve completion.

  • Writer – Together you and Susan discover the key people, events, revelations, layers of your character, your voice, and themes to structure and shape your story. Then, together you both write and edit your manuscript.
  • Editor – Susan makes as many passes over the written material as needed for deeper discovery of character development, narrative build and momentum and to ensure every word, sentence, paragraph and chapter has purpose and furthers the story.  She inspects dialogue, voice, narrative drive and all the other elements needed to make for a moving, concise and precise manuscript ready for publication.

Memory is a passion no less powerful or pervasive than love.
It is the ability to live in more than one world, to prevent the past from fading,
and to call upon the future to illuminate it.
Elie Wiesel, And the Sea is Never Full

“Do you think Muses don’t exist anymore? Think again. Without Susan Stroh as my coach, editor and muse, I would have gotten discouraged and fallen into the old habit of doubting myself. But with Susan’s infectious enthusiasm, skilled listening and light-as-a feather comments and questions, I’m writing with greater confidence and speed and getting more and more excited seeing the project grow and take shape.”

Corinne Simon-Duneau, author
