Survey after survey reveals that public speaking is many people’s greatest fear. If you’re a writer who’s working to reach audiences, you may be required to face that fear! Publishers today expect authors to connect with readers—in print, online, and in person—to promote their work. When you send us a link to your talk, we provide a written critique that highlights your strengths, identifies areas for improvement, and offers practical suggestions you can implement to improve as an effective communicator. Price: $100 (Videos up to forty minutes)

Collaborative/Ghost Writer

Margot serves publishers as a collaborative writer and ghostwriter, helping others tell their amazing stories. (More on this, and Margot’s editing/consulting work HERE!)


Margot also serves publishers and writers as both a literary midwife—helping authors birth the books that are in their hearts through book proposal and manuscript evaluations—and also as a book doctor, stepping in when manuscripts need resuscitation.


Her first book, The Girl in the Orange Dress: Searching For a Father Who Does Not Fail, was awarded the Advanced Writers and Speakers Association’s best nonfiction book of the year for 2011. She’s also the author of six other Christian living books. Not Who I Imagined was a 2015 Selah Awards finalist for Christian Living. Margot is represented by WordServe Literary and is a member of Redbud Writer’s Guild.


Margot enjoys connecting with audiences on campuses and at conferences, retreats and festivals. Some clients include Messiah College, Wheaton College Center for the Application of Christian Ethics, Friends University, MOPs International, Young Life Women’s Weekend, Urban Promise Ministry Summit, Lifest and the Wild Goose Festival.
