Silent for far too long, I’m passionate about helping women find and use their voices through writing and creativity.
The Plot Whisperer
I introduced the Universal Story at the heart of every transformative journey in my bestselling The Plot Whisperer to help novelists, memoirists, and screenwriters embrace the structural, linear and organized side of writing a story.
Before long, I widened my support to include writers limited by self-doubt, ensnarled in emotional traps, and lacking imagination. Now, my work has evolved into plotting a course of action for creatives and makers of all sorts. I serve as a spiritual guide to transform the lives of anyone who has forgotten how to follow your own heart.
Plot Whisperer Blog
Known as the Plot Whisperer for the creativity, plot, and life tips I “whisper” across all social media platforms, I often muse on the Plot Whisperer blog, where I explore creativity, and character and personal transformation to pin down universal elements in stories and in life.
Live Your Best Creative Life
For years of working with writers on the plots for their stories, I met too many talented writers and creatives who hid from their truth. These same writers ultimately led me to confront the truths I’d been hiding from for over 60 years and inspired me to write Boundless Creativity: A Spiritual Workbook for Overcoming Self-Doubt, Emotional Traps and Other Creative Blocks designed to rid you of what holds you back from living your best creative life. The trick is change your habits so your actions and mind align with your passion and enrich your life with more creativity and inspiration.Passionate about freeing women’s creative spirits, I offer the workbook with my dream and deepest desire that the workbook reveals all the benefits that come from filling your days with creativity. I hope the workbook not only helps you tell your truth fearlessly but also transforms your life as writing the workbook has transformed mine.
To live your best creative life, you benefit from:
- A belief in yourself
- A reliance on your own innate intuition
- A wide open imagination
“We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.” Jacques Yves Cousteau
“We forget that the creative cycle and the life cycle are all part of the Universal Story.” Martha Alderson
Learn to enliven your creativity. More easily tap into inspiration. Better envision imaginative solutions. As your creativity blossoms, the quality of your life improves.
I live at the beach, and draw inspiration from the beauty that surrounds me. When I’m not at the beach, I’m helping people live their best lives, writing women’s fiction, and nonfiction about the Universal Story, creativity, plot, and personal transformation.
Living a creative life is like riding a wave.
You’re best served having
a respect for the sea
an understanding of the waves,
and the emotional will to
throw yourself into the great unknown and
surrender to the universal pull…
