Trish Lockard, editor, book coach, author, and owner of Strike The Write Tone.


Welcome. I'm Trish Lockard. As Strike The Write Tone, I offer a full range of editorial services for nonfiction and creative nonfiction, and am a writing coach, specializing in memoir.


Visit my SERVICES page for details.  

In addition to my own clients, I often do freelance editing for publishers across the country.

I am a member of:

Editorial Freelancers Association

ACES: The Society for Editing

National Association of Independent Writers and Editors

In my personal life, I am a long-time member of and volunteer for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). I have served as a chapter president and am a certified classroom instructor for the NAMI program Family-to-Family. I brought those years of experience to my writing of Make a Difference with Mental Health Activism
Long ago and far away. . . after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications from the University of South Florida in Tampa, I began a career as a technical writer of software instruction manuals for telecommunications, insurance, cartography, and freight logistics companies, as well as corporate policy and procedure documentation and employee benefits handbooks.

I have co-authored a book with Dr. Terri Lyon, Make a Difference with Mental Health Activism: No activism degree required  - use your unique skills to change the world.


Visit Terri Lyon's website, Life At The Intersection, for more information.
