“A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.”

— Maya Angelou

I’ve always written as a way to process my thoughts and feelings. As I study memoir writing, and practice it daily, I’m finding the more I write, the more I learn about myself. I’m uncovering my story essay by essay.

Every time I sit down to write I’m surprised by what ends up on the page. It’s almost always unexpected and very often enlightening. It’s turning into quite the journey!

I've blogged for years, and written and published four nonfiction books. Now I'm studying memoir and practicing the craft of creative nonfiction.
