I am a sensitivity reader for Mormon books and books with prominent Mormon characters, and I’d be interested in working on other projects such as film/TV with Mormon topics.

I also offer coaching to authors who are stuck and can’t get to the writing they know they want to do. I also offer developmental editing to writers who have either completed or are in the midst of writing mystery, sff and Mormon-adjacent fiction, non-fiction and memoir. Typical pricing is $2/page for comments in manuscript, an email with detailed notes to move forward and a Zoom call for 20 minutes.

And because I think it makes people feel better to see how bad I was and how far I’ve come, here are a few of my early writings:



    • Better than advertised.

      There must be millions of us who are going to ‘write a book’ someday, but someday never comes.  I had piles of notes collected from over 20 years of ‘maybe’ and hundreds of hours of talking to myself in the shower, but that was it.  Then I took a chance on Mette’s ‘Kick in the Pants’ program.  She is a proven success in all the phases: starting, slogging through the middle and finishing and getting published.  In academia, fiction writing, non-fiction writing, and Ironman.  And that is just what I know about.  Daily encouraging reminders.  Weekly chats.  Killer feedback that is honest but gentle enough.  And I am so stoked.  I followed her guidance and ended up with a first draft, as advertised.  I don’t have money lying around the house, so believe me when I say the price is right and the promised expertise was delivered.  Thanks, Mette!

    • Mette’s expert advice helped me to revise my manuscript, which was key to successfully querying agents. Her editing is thoughtful and spot-on; her insights helped me to make my novel shine brighter.

    • The things that get in the way of our writing are complex. Fear, anxiety, temperament, life-problems, emotions, confidence, practice, skills, discernment, discipline. Mette was a support for me during one of the most complicated, emotional, and fraught creative periods I have ever experienced in my entire life. Her steady input, her calm way of helping me put things into perspective, her uncanny ability to stand in solace with me during near-complete breakdown, were all absolutely integral to my ability to produce a draft of one of the best novels I have ever written. I owe a lot to Mette and recommend her support to anyone who needs just a little help to navigate their way through the creative process.
