"Barbara recently demonstrated the uncanny ability to delve deeply into my soul and have my creativity and confidence soar. With just a few clearheaded words, she sort of turned on a light and gave me the insight I needed when I was severely stuck, inside the revision of my memoir. My writing jumped light years ahead, and I have no doubt that later this year, I will finally find an agent. Thank you, Barbara! "
