for your writing so you
have direction & focus.

“After our first phone conversation I knew I had chosen the right person to help me go forward on my book. I had shelved the work on it for about a year and after talking to Alissa for just an hour I got right back to work, did some revision and hammered out what I really wanted to work with.

“How did that happen? I have no idea except that Alissa can get into the nitty gritty almost immediately and draw it out of you. It is almost miraculous. I continue on the path and am feeling really good about it with her help and writing whispers.”

--Melissa, Colorado

“Alissa is motivating and inspiring—I wish I would have contacted her sooner! She is easy to talk to, a good listener, very knowledgeable and intuitive. I was nervous at first since I am a new writer, however she was so supportive and straightforward—it was really easy to work with her. She helped establish a framework for my writing lifestyle and gave me confidence in my creative process, writing style and ideas. I love getting her newsletters because they are full of great tips and stories too.”
