I’m your coach, Caroline Donahue, MA. 

I have interviewed over 100 authors and book professionals throughout my career in the writing world. I have published, edited, proofread, and written for publications. I took an auction catalogue from idea to press three times a year, and I'm currently writing a novel. 

I have made it my life's work to understand as much as I can about how to get a book out in the world, and I have done it because I believe our stories matter. 

Your story matters. Let's get it written. 




“I was seriously looking for a new direction in life. I really really needed to hear from someone about my writing YOU CAN DO THIS and I BELIEVE IN YOU. It was something I never heard as a kid when I dreamt of writing and give up the dream. Caroline has massively helped me believe in myself. I am utterly gobsmacked and delighted that she has helped me step over this new threshold. I believe in myself as a writer – whatever that means. I feel a huge gap in my life has been filled, that I am going to do something I’ve been waiting to to do for 30 years.”



" I felt very positive and thrilled to be working with you, having listened to and loved your podcast for some time. I knew you were the right person for me to work with and I knew that the timing was right for this focus in my life. Working with a kindred soul for whom writing, reading, coaching and tarot are all great loves was the best experience to set me off on a positive, inspired and grounded start as I work on my own writing and coaching business, with a side of tarot! Thank you so much for the gift of your coaching, Caroline."



“I knew Caroline was awesome and, no matter what, I was going to enjoy the process. It was just like talking to an old friend combined with a super-positive therapy session. I’ve accomplished a SHIT TON in a short time. I did exactly what I set out to do. I’m more confident that I’m on the right path. I’m comfortable calling myself a writer, which has never been the case before.”

“Caroline Donahue has laser sharp instincts. We worked together on some writing for my website and Caroline quickly helped me identify a way to describe my work that was so exactly right that I felt like bells were clanging in my brain. Actually, I felt like Caroline was in my brain. She is super-smart, hilarious, generous and makes fantastic connections in service of her clients. I'm deeply grateful to Caroline and would hire her again as a coach in a heartbeat.”

How people feel about coaching with Caroline



“This was my first time with a coach. I was nervous. A bit of that feeling one has before someone comes to clean the house. That I needed to clean beforehand. Instead, the first thing Caroline helped me with was how to figure out what it was I most wanted to work on. She gave me a framework to find the work that would be the most meaningful and effective at this point in my life. I feel just a little bit braver. More energized to DO difficult things. I feel somehow more able to access optimism. Mostly what I feel more deeply is my own capacity to make myself happier.”



“Before we connected I felt stuck. I learned that you can make big changes with small moves.Knowing that setting goals, tweaking them, accomplishing them and then setting new ones works, has been encouraging and liberating. I will be forever grateful to you, Caroline. Maybe I will write a memoir or book of essays, or maybe my blog will just be a butterfly net capturing, then releasing precious experiences in my life. It doesn't matter, the process is hugely gratifying and without you it would not have happened!"



“I was working on a book about an expressive arts visual journaling process I had created. I knew Caroline knew the language and fundamental principles I was striving to express. She also has exciting, out of the box ways of helping clients see their project with fresh eyes. I needed to have someone help me shake things up and get a fresh perspective. I came away with new tools and a new approach to my business.”



“I wanted to share a bit of news that you definitely had a hand (or word) in making possible. When you did a book consultation with me, you suggested I try a technique of just sitting down and rewriting entirely from memory. To make a long story short, and a short story much better, that, I'm certain, was the technique that finally brought the story into focus. The happy ending is that it was accepted for publication. Thank you.”
