~ Danelle Brown, Queen Bee Consulting

I was thrilled and terrified to be asked to write a chapter in a new anthology, Fearless & Fabulous, Finding Your Way through Midlife and Beyond.  I was given the opportunity to work with a writing coach, Kay Clark-Uhles. Kay took the time to listen and calm my nerves.  With Kay's guidance, I finished my chapter that authentically tells MY story. 

~ Jules Karagiannis, Espresso Yourself Coffee & Café

Knowing Kay was in my corner in creating my chapter was so reassuring.  As this was my first opportunity to publish something, I was nervous.  She guided me adeptly with word and phrase suggestions to better get my ideas across.  Invaluable!  I appreciate her expertise.  Thank you, Kay!

~ Christine Melton, Purely by Heart Designs

Kay added much more to Repurposed Life than punctuation and grammatical edits.  Her coaching and direction allowed me to focus on the book’s content from the reader’s point of view which improved the flow and cohesiveness of the story line.  Kay is an absolute pleasure to work with, and I look forward to our next project together. 

~Lyn Morris, Author Repurposed Life

I am so grateful for the opportunity to share with others about Kay Clark-Uhles.  She served as editor and writing coach with the contributing authors for "Fearless and Fabulous: Finding Your Way through Change and Beyond."  She was diligent and thorough as an editor and great as a writing coach, strategically nudging me to revisit and refine while cheering me on.  She is great as both an editor and coach!

I am a new author writing my first book called ESP (Easy Sales Process): 7-Step to Sales Success and was introduced by a colleague to Kay Clark-Uhles, to help me flush out the book and edit it with a fast approaching deadline. Kay helped pull out my story while helping me keep me on task.

Kay is a rock star with helping organize authors' thoughts, creating a clear outline, and editing the chapters quickly and efficiently. Finally, Kay made the entire experience fun and easy. What more could you ask for in a coach/editor?

Writing in Threes – July 2, 2021

By Kay Clark-Uhles

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I believe that everyone has a story (multiple) to tell. You also know I believe that generations want and need to know the stories of their predecessors. Although one of my uncles wrote about our family tree—complete with locations, births, marriages, children, occupations, and deaths—my parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles never wrote their personal stories. And I so wish they had. I’ve heard many would-be…

Writing: Good as Aged Whiskey – June 2, 2021

By Kay Clark-Uhles

Last month, I wrote about how undead passive verbs kill storytelling and how active verbs pump life and energy into writing. What I didn’t say—Rules of interesting story narration begin there, with the use of active verbs. What is the second rule of good narratives? The elimination of most adverbs and some adjectives.
