About Kim O’Hara
As an Intuitive Book Coach with her company, A Story Inside, Kim has coached over twenty-five authors in the last two years through the writing of their memoirs and self-help books. While the work with her clients has the goal of a finished manuscript, she is particularly focused on their journey of healing through writing. She witnesses her authors’ past stories and encourages them to write new ones.
Two decades as a movie producer and screenwriter in Hollywood taught her the art of story development and artistic collaboration. Her movies starred notable actors, and screened all over the world. A few can be rented on Netflix. She trained as a writer at Stanford Writers Lab, San Jose State English Department and UCLA Advanced Screenwriter’s Lab. She explored acting at the IO West Improv Intensive, but was almost kicked out for “writing everyone’s parts in her head.”
Kim holds sell-out A Story Inside monthly workshops where participants write through prompts to reveal their inner most fears, desires, pain and joy. In a mere day, she helps women heal through their words, unlock hidden potential, and surmount their blocks. You can read more about her company A Story Inside at www.astoryinside.com.
Kim’s memoir, Kicking Abuse In The Ass (A Brutally Honest Memoir), is available to buy now on Amazon. She unfurls the denial of sexual abuse that held her hostage for her whole life, and with an open heart, provides the writing prompts she used to heal.
Kim was the 2017 Keynote Speaker for the Soroptimists of America Spring Conference on Tell Your Story, and will be a Key Panelist at the Motion Picture Fund’s Deal With It Women’s Conference 2018. She will be featured on the UK You Tube Show How I Live in February 2018. She has held story workshops for PMI and PIHRA. She speaks at conferences on a range of topics, always sharing the message that writing your way through any trauma can give you a life you love.
She lives in Los Angeles, CA with her two beautiful daughters, one cat and an endless barrage of fleas.
