“Because of Cynthia’s encouragement and guidance, I’m watching my book continue to be my best selling product. I hired her as a writing coach, but she’s been so much more. She’s coached me through personal challenges as well.
I’m always motivated after I talk with her. Because of that, business is booming and I feel like I know myself much better than before I hired her. Cynthia’s coaching is invaluable to anyone who wants to get things done and needs accountability.“

“I came to Cynthia for coaching because I felt S-T-U-C-K. I was miserable practicing law but I couldn’t see my way out. Working with Cynthia was like opening a door that had been locked with chains and bars for several years. We let in all this fresh air and sunshine and suddenly there were possibilities that seemed exciting and real.
I recommend working with Cynthia because she works with you wherever you are. On those days when you’re riding your bike, the wind is blowing in your hair, and you’re coasting toward your grand vision, she’s on a bike next to you taking in the sights and cheering you on.
When you’ve fallen off the bike and you’re wondering whose dumb idea this change was, she’s right there with the antiseptic and bandages, helping you get past the tears and see the glorious vista that’s still right in front of you. With Cynthia’s help, I left the practice of law, started my own venture, and now have two book deals. Who can’t use a partner like that?!”

“In the cluttered coaching space, Cynthia Morris has continued success because she makes it her mission to make her clients successful. Where many coaches merely show up, survey a situation, and offer a few platitudes, Cynthia fully engages and fully believes in your project and creative process.
I dedicated my popular multi-media manifesto ‘The Framework’ to Cynthia because there’s no way I would have shipped it had I not hired her to kick my ass into getting it done.
The benefits I’ve reaped from this project include paid speaking gigs, design and facilitation gigs and countless kudos from readers. Not only done, but better than I could have imagined.
That’s Cynthia’s gift: looking through your doubts, fears, or utter laziness and nurturing your genius…magnifying your buried greatness so the rest of the world can experience it. I now take on massive creative undertakings on the regular, and Cynthia is typically the first call I make.“
– Kristoffer Carter, author of The Framework (thisepiclife.com)
“Cynthia works with what shows up, and build from there. She has an exceptional ability to focus on both the personal /human/writer and also the practical writing aspects – and this deepens and accelerates insights and progress.
She is positive, encouraging and shares practical tips and ideas that can be implemented straight away. She ‘lightens’ the experience of writing… even when it feels heavy… and that nudges the whole process forwards.”
– Jane Moran, Noesis Learning (noesislearning.com)
“My creative energy had dipped. I had invested so much into my business and supporting other writers that I had lost enthusiasm for my own writing project.
From my work with Cynthia, I began making real creative connections again, rediscovering my love of books, of gardens, of singing, of art.
She supported me as I moved from one literary agent to another and helped me to refocus my energies back to my own novel.
I cannot recommend Cynthia highly enough. I did so appreciate our coaching and my renewed energy for my creative work has continued. Cynthia is inspiring and empathetic and has a wonderful ability to know just how to get you back in your creative flow; to find the joy of it again.”
– Jacqui Lofthouse, author of How to Be a Literary Genius and Bluethroat Morning (thewritingcoach.co.uk)
“Cynthia brings a wonderful breadth and depth of skills to the coaching process. As an expert coach, she offers insights and thought-provoking questions that challenge and inspire. As a successful published writer, she understands every step of the author journey.
Her passion for her clients and her passion for writing and living a creative life shine through her interactions and her work.
I valued every conversation with her and also gained great additional value from reviewing the written notes and audio replays which she sent after each session. In addition to her coaching and writing expertise, Cynthia possesses a remarkable intelligence which enables her quickly to get to the heart of an issue and help the client move forward with confidence.
Finally, she has a lively sense of humor which makes the entire process fun as well as meaningful. As a writer working on a long-term book project, I’m grateful for Cynthia’s support and highly recommend her as a coach.”
– Carolyn Barnabo, author of My Sydney Paris Life (mysydneyparislife.wordpress.com)
“I am so grateful to Cynthia for so much. I started writing seriously a few years ago, not considering myself a real writer. Now, I know in the deepest part of myself that I am a writer.
This shift is a huge gift, and I feel Cynthia has given me that gift. There are many things to thank her for. Her creativity which is a model for me, her joy and passion for the work we all do, her own writing process where she holds amazing perseverance and commitment, her belief in her own writing, her sense of adventure that she brings to every interpersonal transaction, and her ability to support and motivate the writers who seek her counsel.”
– Fran Jenner, author of Prairie Journey (prairiejourney.com)
“Signing up for Cynthia’s writing coaching is by far the best investment I’ve ever made. She was my shrink when I was panicked, my motivational speaker when I was afraid, and my friend when I was slacking.
Never have I felt surer about success than when I was working with her. I could go on and on, but I’ll let the results speak for themselves instead: three years of talking to my friends about writing a book, and I had nothing. Six months of Cynthia coaching, and I finished my book. Sign up for her coaching, you won’t regret it.“
– Rami Nuseir, author of Gutsy Geek (gutsygeek.com)
“I thought I was hiring Cynthia to help me organize the structure of my book and be a pace-setter for completing it. However, Cynthia’s coaching turned out to be so much more: she helped me break through the clutter in my writing processes and avoid the pitfalls that took me off the course to finishing my book.
Throughout our coaching work, Cynthia helped me ensure that I always remained focused on the right writing activities, saving me countless hours and untold frustration on the path to completing my book. Cynthia was a tremendous resource and ally and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who’s struggled to get their ideas on paper.”
– Scott Pollack, author of Start of the Deal (http://startofthedeal.com)
“My work with Cynthia was phenomenal. I hired her to help me with a book project – my first book! I was excited and nervous and wanted to do it the right way. I had done what I thought I had done extensive work building a solid foundation. But Cynthia’s candid, honest and thorough feedback took my book to a much deeper level. That allowed me to be proud to publish it.
Cynthia really guided me throughout this process. She helped me to discover my true self and what my work was really worth and what my project meant to me and to those I am called to serve. My time with Cynthia was so enriching and I was sorry to see it end.
I would not have been able to finish this without Cynthia. If you are considering working with Cynthia, don’t hesitate, don’t delay, stop analyzing and just go ahead and do it. The results that you will receive will be far greater than your investment. It will be a journey that you won’t regret. I am sure you’ll be happy you hired Cynthia. I know I am.”

“I knew Cynthia was the coach for me because of her emphasis on creating a writing life, which has been my biggest challenge. I needed to figure out how to actually get my writing done without becoming a hermit.
Through my work with Cynthia, I gained valuable clarity on the place of writing in my life. I made significant progress on my novel, creating and reinforcing strategies to keep me working in a happy and healthy way. Her calls never failed to turn my mood from discouragement and confusion to joyful enthusiasm. This woman knows her stuff. I recommend Cynthia to anyone who wants knowledgeable and inspiring companionship on the rocky road of artistic creation.”

“My children’s book is out to readers and I am getting terrific responses–they LOVE it! I know for certain that I wouldn’t be where I am if it weren’t for Cynthia and her wonderful mentoring.”
– Laurel Becker, author of In the Heart of a Quiet Garden (laureljeanbecker.com)
“When I found myself in the midst of a major playwriting project I decided to give Cynthia’s coaching a try. Thank God I did! Oh my, until I experienced her coaching, I never would have believed how powerful coaching could be.
Cynthia’s laser-like insight and her wonderful guiding spirit helped me to get really clear about how I needed to proceed with my writing project. She helped me to create and plan out a physical environment that would make me feel inspired to write, as well as develop and commit to my writing practice (and make it fun!). We created concrete goals for my project, and I’m happy to say I met (or exceeded) them all. When it comes time to start my next major project, I will definitely be coaching with Cynthia again.”
– Pidge Meade, performance artist
“An accomplished writer herself, Cynthia knows what it is like to achieve writing goals. This is part of why she has attained great credibility as a coach. And she understands me and my writing process. Before she began coaching me, I was floundering.
I wanted to write a book on how to navigate a complex, often-uncaring medical system, but I had no idea how to even write a book. Cynthia helped me overcome the physical and emotional hurdles of such a task.
Now I am proud to say that, thanks to Cynthia’s guidance and positive outlook, as well as my hard work, I have completed my manuscript, book proposal and query letter, built a platform, and my book will come out soon.”
– Beth Gainer, author of Calling the Shots (bethgainer.com)
“Working with Cynthia changed my writing life. Our open and honest conversations helped me realize that my years as a journalist was in many ways holding me back from tackling the deep writing I was aiming for. I was editing unformed ideas, judging material before it had a chance to mature on the page.
Cynthia taught me to acknowledge the ‘gremlins of not good enough’ and then get back to writing. This gave me confidence and inspired me to create my own collection of personal essays on what it means to belong at www.thebelongingblog.com.”
