Stefanie Molina is a book coach who helps writers work through their mindset blocks and complete the novels of their dreams. At Salt & Sage, she’s a sensitivity reader who’s obsessed with learning and sharing knowledge, and often finds herself on mental tangents without any idea how she arrived there…
Stefanie treasures the endless love and excitement authors have for their work. She believes the most important characteristic a writer can have is persistence, and she adores boosting morale and motivating her authors to reach the elusive finish line. She works hard to infuse the writing process with joy and fun. Few things are better to her than helping an author gain confidence and reach their goal!
As a pan woman of color, Stefanie is personally invested in increasing representation in publishing, and is most interested in diverse stories with fresh perspectives. Any story that blends adventure and romance is her perfect cup of tea.
When she’s not adding books to her reading list at an unsustainable rate, you can usually find her in the great outdoors; exploring her multiple cultures through food; or in a totally unrelated daydream.

What Clients Say
My experience with Salt & Sage, was, first of all, extremely professional from start to finish. Every email was friendly and welcoming without losing the sense of expertise and professionalism - questions were answered promptly and clearly, and issues were sorted out quickly and reliably. The edit I received was incredible - Stefanie was thorough, addressed all of my concerns, came up with suggestions for fixes I could make, noted areas I had not even mentioned that she thought I could improve, and above all else was kind. I had expected to receive my edit feeling embarrassed or ashamed - this was not the case. Not to say I did not have areas to improve, but rather that I most certainly did, and they were addressed carefully and with graciousness. I would return to use Salt & Sage in a heartbeat!
Stefanie gave great feedback I never would’ve thought of on my own. Everyone I spoke to was kind and easy to work with, I’d definitely recommend Salt and Sage.
