"Working with Suzette helped me refine and elevate my concept, position and focus my book, and pitch a polished proposal that sparked interest from multiple publishers and led to a book deal. 

Suzette is calm, in charge without being bossy, and tough in the best kind of way. She is attuned to finding the deeper "why" of your story, and she won't let you get away without going as deep as you need to go in service of that story. She truly is Your Story Finder, your book coach."

Suzette takes the fear out of writing

"Suzette has an innate ability to get you to dig deeper so you can access the parts of your story that will turn a good book into a transformational one. She takes the fear out of writing and allows you the freedom to capture the real story on paper. I cannot recommend her enough!"

~ JENNIFER DIAZ 

Like many of my clients, Jenn had more than one book idea. In fact, she had three: a narrative memoir, a self-help book, and something in between.

We dug into all three ideas and clarified the story that she felt called to write first—and then clarified how she would tell that story. We did this by looking at the bigger picture—her deep “why” for writing this book. What she wanted it to accomplish. And who she was writing it for. Through my story-finding process, we identified the common threads in various important moments in her life and uncovered the deeper story Jenn feels called to write.

"If you're working on a book and struggling with where to begin, needing support in thinking through story arcs and various structural elements, struggling with the practical ways to organize your writing, or just looking for encouragement and accountability....

I highly recommend Suzette Mullen! In a very short period of time, she helped me with both the big picture -- the journey I needed to take the reader on -- and getting grounded in next steps, breaking things down and literally walking me through Scrivener and an example of how I might use it to organize myself. I walked away feeling inspired and confident in my ability to move forward productively in the work. Suzette is compassionate, patient, a great listener, and dedicated to the craft -- everything you need in a coach. Thank you Suzette!!"
