Pat is a genius! Before we met, I had been working on a memoir for several years, and struggled to give my story structure and pacing. After our first call, I hung up the phone with confidence that I had found the right mentor to help me get the writing to the place I wanted, and four weeks later I felt we had nailed it. Pat’s story-telling expertise helped me determine what to keep and what to delete. She encouraged me to dig deep. She asked difficult questions to help me get to the root of my story, all the while allowing me to stay true to my voice and my vision. Her encouragement and her ability to instantly “get it” helped make my process fun, inspiring and an experience I wish I could do all over again. I will return to Pat with any future projects with no hesitation.
