“Nomi, you are so professional and have such a big heart. You didn't just write well, or work well, you got inside my head and became me. You were my voice and my witness and told my story better than I could have myself. You are such a great writer, a true artist and a genius. Thank you for working with me, it has been the greatest adventure, a true joy and I didn't want it to end! Bravo!”

— Ellie Laks, Author (with Nomi Isak) of My Gentle Barn (2014, Crown/Random House)

“Nomi is a top-notch developmental editor and copy editor who has worked with me on books of tremendous challenge and complexity for the J. Paul Getty Museum. I can always count on her to get the job done and to do it right. Authors have been consistently grateful for her skilled, insightful improvement of their texts and her cheerful, positive approach. In short, she's a gem.”

—Dinah Berland, Former Senior Editor, J. Paul Getty Museum Publications

“I would recommend Nomi to anyone writing anything. She has the insight and intelligence combined with an innate ability to help you figure out what you want to say and how to get going!”

—T. Frank, Writer

To Those Seeking One-on-One Coaching:

As a writing coach, I sit down with you face to face (or on the phone). Together we work to achieve your creative goals.

I customize each session for you, depending on your needs. I may be helping you find your voice and vision. Or I may be guiding you–step by step–through the process of writing a book. We may focus on the creative process itself or on goal setting and deadlines.

If you feel blocked, we'll use out-of-the-box techniques to get you out of that stuck place and onto the page with power and grace.
