Meet Your Coach

Dorothea Buckingham - Historical Book Coach


Dorothea Buckingham is an award-winning author, librarian, and certified book coach who specializes in coaching writers of memoir and historical fiction. 

I have the academic credentials and professional experience to guide you through your project from your first glimmer of an idea through its deep revision. 

Being coached in writing a book, no matter what the genre, is a personal journey. You, the writer, become vulnerable during coaching partnership.  

We have to trust each other and we must be honest with each other. If either of us tells the other what they want to hear–it won’t work.

Please schedule a 30-minute complimentary call so we can get to know each other.
