What Our Client Say

I worked with Nancy Baumann, The Book Professor, on a one-to-one basis. Nancy is a great coach! She taught me how to develop a strong foundation for a series of children books that I have been working on for a long time. I’ve had the desire to write a series, but never knew what direction to go or exactly where to begin. Nancy helped me pull it all together, and I now have a plan to focus on to make my books a reality. There’s a lot of work to do, but I can see that my goals are achievable.

( Jill Droege )

"Working with Nancy on a one-to-one basis has given me focus and confidence.The time that we spent directly discussing certain aspects of the focus of my book was invaluable. The intent of my conference with Nancy was too funnel the broadness of my thoughts and intentions with my book, however, Nancy's insight helped me to recognize other critical aspects that I had missed; most specifically my target audience. Her guidance in this matter is critical to the success of the book. She is easy to talk to, yet direct. It is refreshing to work with someone who is comfortable enough with themselves to offer honest yet sincere feedback. Feedback that contributes to my growth but that doesn’t make me feel like an idiot. You are amazing Nancy! Thank you for being you."
