Welcome to the home of The Novel Advisor.  I'm Carmen Green, and the services offered are garnered from over 30 years in the publishing business. You may choose how you want to benefit from this experience. Custom packages include crafting your novel from beginning to end, consultation on how to publish, critiques on what you've written, discussions on the industry as a whole, how to approach an agent or editor, what to do after you've been published, or self publishing options. The experience and knowledge are invaluable, so we can discuss how best to develop a package that suits your needs.

  • What is your writing background?
    I've been a National best selling author for 20 years with 34 books published in 5 languages. I've had one book, Commitments, adapted into a TV movie, and have written and produced one stage play in 2010. In addition to writing, I am now a writing coach, and count some of the country's most successful romance novelists as my first students. In my spare time, I enjoy making jewelry, and hanging out with family. My recent novel, Entanglement was released February 2020. For writing coaching inquiries, please reach me at or
  • What made you become a writing coach?
    I've taught in colleges and online for 12 years, and it's natural for me teach what I love. Some of the people I've taught have become published! I love what I do, and I hope I can continue to help others achieve their dreams of getting their stories out there.
  • Where do your ideas come from?
    It sounds cliche, but music chords mostly. The saxaphone inspires me a lot. People watching and nature. When I'm in the classroom, I love listening to my students talk about what's going on in the world. They encourage me to get involved and see things the way they do. They are very interesting people.
  • If you weren't a writer, what would you be?"
    I don't know. God has the ultimate plan for everyone's life. I'd have to ask Him what is plan D.
