What do you hope to learn/offer to this group?

How to organize and write a full-length memoir. Also, to learn everything I can about writing from others and to get some valuable critique of my writing. I can offer passion, critiquing (intermediate level -- maybe) and a sense of humor.

Are you writing a memoir now or planning to?

I am writing a memoir about my experience with international adoption.

What is your favorite memoir that you've read recently and why?

I'm at McDonald's writing this, so I don't have the book in front of me. The title is Call the Midwife (or Midwives). Although the prose is not the best quality, the stories and images are powerful.


I've been editing and re-editing two memoirs for the past ten years. What a process! Since September of 2012, I've been taking classes at Phoenix Community College to earn a Creative Writing Certificate. My day job is teaching kids.
