Find your voice. Tell your story. Make it work.
Whether you’re building a brand identity for your new product, breaking ground on your memoir, or simply seeking to develop your craft as a writer, how you tell your story matters more than anything else. I have worked with hundreds of writers, business owners, and innovators on books, blogs, and brand-building. I believe that every project, client, and story is different, and warrants a unique approach.
I approach each story with the care and attention it deserves; I am committed to supporting you as you cultivate your authentic voice. I ask detailed questions about the project at hand and really listen to your answers before suggesting how we could proceed to make your vision a reality. Whether that means content creation, substantive editing, brand consultation, coaching, or a combination of those elements depends on you.
The result is a bespoke creative collaboration tailored to your specific needs.

“If you are looking for a fresh mind, creative ideas, experience, skills and a lovely personality in your Consultant, then look no further. It was such a pleasure working with Toby earlier this year. Her input on how to improve our social media and online exposure as well as her brainstorming support and great ideas on new business names for us, was invaluable and very refreshing. She took her time listening to and understanding what we wanted and needed and then made well thought-through, creative and helpful suggestions which we are looking forward to putting into practice when the time comes.”— Isabel and Graeme Essen
“Being a non-native English speaker who just wrote a book in English, I needed more than just an editor. Not only has Toby managed to make my work an enjoyable read, she has also taught me how to write better English. Her understanding of style, composition and grammar is outstanding, her professionalism is unrivalled, and yet she is totally fun to work with. I can’t recommend her warmly enough.”
— Raffaello Manacorda, “Conscious Relationships: The Art of Bringing Awareness to Intimacy & Sexuality“

“Toby is so easy to work with. She is highly intelligent and caring, and she can take on any task and excel at it. Her communication is excellent, too—so many superhuman traits. She has taken my business to a place that I only dreamed of, and I couldn’t have done it without her.
Before Toby, my greatest time consumer in my business was writing, and my deepest anxiety was that my grammar was poor and my writing not good enough. Now I am proud to share my writings worldwide. Since working with Toby I’ve had three books published by Hay House and articles published through Huffington Post! Could I have done that without her? No. My self esteem has also improved, because I have someone else whose work I admire lifting me up, letting me know when something is good and when something needs changing.
To Toby: I adore working with you. You are the most professional, reliable, talented person that I believe I have ever hired in my business. You are a delight to connect with each day, easy to get along with, willing to work under pressure and always attain deadlines with a smile. What more could I ask? I am blessed to have found you. Thank you for doing this work!”— Donna Wild, Author, Speaker & Weight Loss Nutritionist
“Toby is a delight to work with. While she was an editor at Elephant Journal, I chose her as my personal editor because of all the great experiences we’d had together. She is full of encouragement and positivity. When I developed an interest in travel writing, one of Toby’s areas of specialty, I reached out to Toby to mentor me. She shared her insights with me with great enthusiasm. Toby is a great inspiration to me.”
— Pavita Singh, Writer, Marketer, & Editor
“Toby worked for my husband and I for two years while she was over seas. It was a delight to have her on board! My husband and I are self employed; artist and Rolfer. We needed someone who was looking ahead, looking out, helping us move forward into the world. Toby edited for us, she wrote corresponding letters as our assistant, she kept up on media contacts, client contacts and grant applications. She kept an eye on future planning and informed us regularly so we did not lose our pace. She held a clear sense of direction when we asked for her guidance, and she appreciated that the creative process is never linear and sometimes things have to happen in increments. I have never seen her to express anxiety, but I have felt her gentle and playful pressure to move ahead with ease, kindness and excitement. I always felt she was aware of details even while she was continually traveling. I highly recommend Toby for her intuitive skills for writing, communicating and navigating a small business, or a larger one.”— Liesje Smith
