My Fearless Foursome!

Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of hosting my first ever men’s memoir workshop.  I had 4 brave men who stepped forward (from left to right we have Keith, Vinny, Jim and Tom).  Last March when I was at the airport waiting to fly back to my father’s funeral my article came out in The Desert Sun called A Memoir Helps You To See Who You Really Are.  I received a few email messages from men stating, I see you teach Women’s Memoir Classes, but what about us men?  It was at that moment that I realized that I wish my own father would have had the chance to write his memoir and so the idea was planted.  I had the best two hours yesterday.  The men were wonderful and I look forward to having some more workshops just for men.  Thank you Keith, Vinny, Jim and Tom for being the foundation for a great beginning for teaching men’s memoir workshops.  I look forward to developing some workshops geared just for men.  What a wonderful gift these men are doing, not only for themselves, but for their families!

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!"
