Hi. I'm a writer and a writing teacher in schools throughout New York City, including The New School, NYU, and New York City College of Technology.

I offer one-on-one writing coaching and book doctoring for both non-fiction and fiction projects. For more about my editorial services, click here.

My memoir, Dirty Secret: A Daughter Comes Clean About Her Mother's Compulsive Hoarding was published by Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books; you can find more information here.

I also write personal essays and health and wellness articles for newspapers and magazines including The New York Times, Salon.com, and EveryDay with Rachel Ray. You can read a sampling here.




Have questions? Perhaps some sartorial advice? You can contact me at jessie.sholl [at] gmail.com.


And, if you're inclined, feel free to follow me on Instagram or the Twitter.



<< PS: This is not my dog. I happened upon Klaus this summer, and since our outfits matched ... well, I had to get a photo. At the time he was eight months old and already weighed 130 pounds!
