Meet Gillian

Hi, I'm Gillian: Author coach, writer, editor, yogini, nature lover, and free spirit.

I grew up a North Jersey girl who found my peeps among the creatives and theatre people. I’m location independent and have lived in Chicago, Hawaii, New York, Europe and Vermont and currently live in Upstate New York’s Hudson Valley. Digital tools such as email, Zoom conferencing, Dropbox, and Google Docs allow me to serve clients living anywhere in the world.

My extensive teaching and publications background laid the groundwork for my career as a professional writer, editor, and author coach. My clients and students tell me I’m insightful, thoughtful, compassionate, encouraging, inspiring, and motivating. I put people and their passions first. What’s important to you is important to me.

I’m half country girl who’s happiest in the woods and meditating on boulders in babbling streams, and half city girl who needs regular access to good yoga classes, fabulous ethnic food, live music, and art that pushes me to think about the world in new ways. I love learning from people from diverse backgrounds and a range of interests, experience, and expertise.

Whether I’m coaching, writing, or editing, I’m passionate about what I do. I thrive on collaboration. I’m open-minded and a good listener. I handle sensitive material with tact and respect. I care about my clients and work hard to provide them with professional, timely, top-notch service and results, by or ahead of deadline.

I can also provide photos for stories; see some of my work in the collage below.

I invite you to visit my author coaching, writing, and editing pages to find out more about my expertise and the services I offer. Take a gander at my writing portfolio, get a feel for my personality and how I work in the videos on my home page, and check out my testimonials from happy clients. If you’ve got a project you think might be a fit, shoot me an email from my contact page.

I look forward to meeting you!

The writer must believe that what he is doing is the most important thing in the world. And he must hold to this illusion even when he knows it is not true.
