Dear Tammy, Just a quick pause to tell you how I valued the two hours I spent with you to discuss my memoir….. (had you all to myself!!!) Wanted to tell you how much It meant, encouraging me to build on my thoughts of how “life’s ironies” have contributed to my success in life. Your suggestions to build on this theme throughout my story, immediately released me to do exactly that. Additionally, a piece I recently wrote concerning this and read to you because I wasn’t sure where it belonged, you cleared the air and suggested it should be the final chapter, as it reflected my concluding thoughts, a summarizing statement acknowledging the empowerment of life’s lessons. . . . . Many thanks to you.

Sincerely, Joan Suter

writing coach relaxesThose who know Tammy know that she is passionate about what she does.  When one walks into her office, they are greeted with a warm smile and a hug.

As a facilitator for women’s groups, she is warm, caring and able to allow the women to open up and share with one another.  Time and time again women have told her that they never expected to share those private moments with anyone, much less with a group of women.

Walk into the writing workshops and you will feel the warm atmosphere that Tammy has created here in the beautiful area of Palm Desert, California. Come see for yourself what other women have experienced when they have enrolled in the Living a Legacy series.

Make plans now to join Tammy’s fun, interactive, life-changing class!

A small, intimate and safe place to explore the inner story teller inside each of us. What a wonderful place to come and meet new friends. Join author Tammy L. Coia in a journey of a lifetime!
