The Stories That Make Us

This book is unlike anything else I’ve read. It’s such an emotional, heartfelt story of love, loss, and relationships. The writing is so real and the emotions so raw- you can truly feel the characters’ joy, pain, and sorrow. I think many women can identify with Haleigh and know (and may even be with) their Josh. I highly recommend The Last Look for readers who want a realistic, relatable, and touching book. Eckhardt does a wonderful job writing a very real, honest story.

What I Offer

Book Coaching

With book coaching, we work on elements of your book such as structure, voice, tone, message delivery, target audience connection, storytelling, industry expectations, and identify any gaps that may exist between the author telling what they know vs. what the reader still needs to be able to understand. We also set a timeline for when we want the entire book to be done, and I keep you accountable to the milestones we set.


A 1.5-day intensive program designed to transform aspiring authors’ visions into an actionable book project. This immersive experience includes personalized goal setting, deep dives into story discovery, clarity and structuring workshops, honing the author’s unique voice, an introduction to the publishing world, and a comprehensive follow-up session. 


Ghostwriting is a service that takes the ideas and stories of the client and transforms them into books that fit the client’s authentic vision, tone, and vision. It is best for clients who have a very specific idea or concept for a book and are willing to provide the ghostwriter with the information and stories they need to be able to write the client’s book in the timeline set.
