Debra Parmley is not only an interesting and vibrant speaker, but she also teaches from experience. She’s a true voice of authority in the writing industry. I’ve been in the business for over a decade and yet felt compelled to sit up and take notes. Not only is Debra wise beyond her years, but she delivers informative workshops guaranteed to capture and hold her audience’s attention.

Private Consultations:

In one short hour, Debra was able to help me break through several years’ worth of writer’s block. She has a knack for throwing your brain for a loop with techniques more involved and useful than the plain, surface-skimming concept maps and writing prompts you find with most writers’ sources. They are useful for breaking through every bit of congestion you may run into with your writing. She is fun, insightful, and encouraging. Please, give her a shot! She is well worth the time.  – Amanda L. Trowbridge

Debra Parmley is a great resource and author. I scheduled an appointment to meet with Debra to review my first book. She was incredibly helpful with her knowledge and creativity as an author and her expertise in this field. Her insight regarding marketing strategies and promotion were extremely favorable. I highly recommend Debra as a wonderful teacher and guide when writing, publishing, and marketing a book.  – Susan Saucier
