What Students Say
“Couldn’t have written anything without you.” — Larry Seeley, Santa Fe, NM author of Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, and 17 Degrees North
“Character development, pace, dialog: all essential tools for mastering the craft. I’ve taken classes, joined writer’s groups and participated in workshops but nothing brought these things home like Tea With Toni. If you’re serious about writing, open your mind, let go of your ego and let Toni help you become the writer you know you can be. I know I’m glad I did.” — Sharon, Thousand Oaks, CA
