“First, you write for yourself... always, to make sense of experience and the world around you. It’s one of the ways I stay sane. Our stories, our books, our films are how we cope with the random trauma-inducing chaos of life as it plays.”


Bruce Springsteen

"Working with Kirsten was a great experience. She helped me wrangle an unwieldy creative nonfiction feature into a shorter, tighter, more sellable piece. Kirsten was able to see the theme that was missing in the story and her compassionate comments were invaluable in helping me see it, too. I would not hesitate to recommend Kirsten."

 "I hired Kirsten as a mentor to assist me with developmental editing I was doing for a client's memoir. Kirsten's support and advice was invaluable. She was an excellent sounding board for my ideas, and my doubts, so I was able to move the project forward with much more confidence and direction. Her recommendations were practical and inspiring."
