92 years young…

If you ever get the chance to take one of my workshops and have the opportunity to sit with Melitas Forster, you are in for a treat!  Melitas is my most senior student at age 92.  Her memory and recollections of events are amazing.  I make it a point to try to stop by and see her at least once a week to make sure she is staying on task…she does have lots to write about obviously.  Yes, she is a keeper and I plan on keeping her in my classes for years to come!

Melitas was featured as one of the “accomplished elders with cool stories’ in today’s Desert Sun.  Click here to read the article.

"Because of Tammy I have found confidence in my writing and feel blessed to be honored in such a way. I have found my voice. I have found freedom! I recommend anyone for whatever reason to expand their life and sign up for her writing workshops or classes. You'll be amazed at how good you are and how everyone has a story worth telling. Sign up and set your voice free!"
