I coach fiction writers who need support for some aspect of their writing.
I also help non-fiction writers and have a passion for non-fiction myself.
DO I NEED LOTS OF PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AS A WRITER?
For new writers, I recommend my online course, known as the Fear of Writing Online Course. A coaching program can always follow the completion of the course, if so desired. In fact, this is the path to my coaching service most commonly taken by new writers.

CAN YOU HELP ME FINISH MY BOOK?
Yes, I can help you finish your book. But, as in anything, there’s a broad range of human experience. Depending on their issues, some writers need more time, and some are fast workers. Below are some examples.
I have a client who had not written much in seven years but who wrote the first draft of her first novel in about a month with the third assignment I gave her because she was so on fire with the assignment. (She was working on it night and day, so her results are not the average.) I also had a client who happily finished a book she had been stalled on finishing for five years, and she is now a published author. I currently have a client in her 70s who is finally writing the novel she conceived of decades ago, and it is nearing completion. Hers has taken longer, but she doesn’t mind because it’s fulfilling a cherished dream.
WILL MILLI KICK ME UP THE BUTT TO GET ME MOVING?
My style is to motivate you with genuine, caring enthusiasm and inspire you with the riches of your own imagination. As in everything I offer to writers, the underlying theme is to have fun and embrace the Inner You.
I also provide an accountability program designed especially for you. Each client is different in how they want to be held accountable. I will listen deeply and base it on your needs.
WHAT KINDS OF ASSIGNMENTS WILL I GET?
Your assignments will be tailored to your personal creative journey. Each assignment is created especially for you by me in response to what you express during the coaching sessions, and based on whatever it is you are wanting to write.

WHAT IF I DON’T LIKE AN ASSIGNMENT YOU GIVE ME?
First, I would help you determine whether the assignment is actually not suited to your needs or whether you’re experiencing resistance. Sometimes attempting an assignment you think you don’t like melts the resistance away and you end up getting to something you didn’t realize was waiting to emerge.
If you truly don’t like an assignment (or it’s not right for you), there’s an easy solution: I will design a new assignment for you the same day.
