I help authors discover the wonder of their own voice, uncover the beauty within their story, and birth their offering into the world.

The Go-To “Book Doctor”

Author • Collaborator • Writing Coach

For experts wanting to pen their own offerings, I get involved in all aspects of the creative process—as a coach, a developmental editor, or a ghostwriting wordsmith. Sometimes that means fine-tuning a book idea or crafting a book proposal, playing with voice or giving feedback chapter-by-chapter. Often it means helping writers get quiet, offering them practices with an inward focus so they can listen to what wants to be revealed, discover their unique gift as a writer and find the clarity and confidence they need to write their book.

Linda has the rare ability to be honest yet kind; focused and organized yet flexible and funny.

—Dr. Rachel Allyn, The Pleasure is All Yours

ABOUT LINDA

For the last ten years, I have been a coach, developmental editor, collaborator, and ghostwriter, focused on helping aspiring writers navigate the book-writing world. My clients have ranged from a TV talk show personality to a neuroscientist/ integrative MD in San Francisco and an acupuncturist in Beverly Hills, to psychotherapists, yoga celebrities, self-help experts, memoirists, and even an 80-year-old shaman.

My services include working with authors during any phase of the writing journey. I will brainstorm and refine ideas; collaborate on or ghostwrite a book proposal; develop (or ghostwrite) a manuscript; and pitch to agents or publishers whom I have personal relationships with.

BOOKS BY LINDA

Along with lending my writing and editing skills to help others birth their book projects, I have authored several books of my own, including the award-winning Yoga At Home: Inspiration for Creating Your Own Personal Practice (Rizzoli Publications).

COURSES

In the fall of 2019, I created an online writers community to assist writers on their book-writing journey. The first offering has been an 18-week online course called Your Voice, Your Story, Your Book, in which we explore all facets of writing narrative nonfiction, including memoir, self-help, narrative journalism, educational e-books, and personal essays. Throughout the course we learn how to cut through the noise of our own minds to find the confidence and clarity we need to write from the heart. There’s plenty of time to write, read what we wrote, and receive encouraging feedback. All of this within a supportive and loving circle of trust.

Reflections

Yoga to the Rescue

Yoga to the Rescue

If you suffer from anxiety or chronic stress, you certainly don’t need anyone to tell you what that feels like. A pounding in your ears perhaps? A racing heart beat, sweaty palms?

I can’t say enough of how I loved working with Linda Sparrowe.  From the onset of deciding to write a book to the book proposal and then to the actual writing of the book, Linda was there every step of the way. She helped me, guided me, and edited my work. She knew the voice that was needed and was kind, and compassionate in our journey together. She is a wise soul and an inspiration to me.
