Connecting Writer and Reader...

Done properly, memoir is more than just a recitation of facts about a person’s life. It’s a journey, connecting writer and reader in that shared space where we all experience what it means to be human. Writing Memoir: The Practical Guide to Writing and Publishing the Story of Your Life details, in a practical, fun way, how you can take the particulars of your life and weave them into a moving, compelling, page-turning story. With examples from my own works as well as other works from the masters of the genre, Writing Memoir lays out everything you need to know about narrative arc, theme, character development, description, dialogue, flow, and voice.

Concise, yet comprehensive, Writing Memoir also covers essential concerns like how to construct an effective outline, how to avoid common errors of grammar and punctuation, how to go about editing and rewriting, how to view your book critically and objectively, and the ins and outs of both traditional publishing and self-publishing—everything you need to know to write and publish the “story of your life.”

Whether you’re considering utilizing my professional ghostwriting services or writing your memoir yourself, I'm confident you’ll find Writing Memoir an indispensible guide.
