Biography

Marty & HorsesWith over 45 years as a writing professional, having successfully coached associates, employees, authors and screenwriters during her producing partnership with actor Martin Sheen at Symphony Pictures in the 1990s, Marty knows what it takes to get from the blank page to the finished product.
 
Her credits include writing and/or producing more than 30 television and film projects, 40 books online and in print (some ghost written), several articles and short stories; she escaped the Hollywood Shuffle for Big Sky Country to share her experience with others who are seeking some honest advice about their writing efforts.
 
Living in Northwestern Montana, Marty enjoys tennis in the summer, skiing in the winter and playing with her 5 dogs, 3 horses and 1 large cat, and her first-and-only husband year round. Their three adult children, thirteen grandchildren, and friends from all over enjoy the fresh air and sweet water available at Humpty’s Dump, a century old ranch house located on 20+ acres near a town of 250 people who were available during the last census.
 
Coachwrite’s clients include writers, entrepreneurs, salespersons, professionals, and writing coaches who wish to communicate more effectively on websites, in blogs, in sales letters, marketing materials, bios, brochures, books, and e-books.
