Fire book cover from Amazon

 Available in May 2016

My memoir about the firestorm of 1991. As the twenty-fifth anniversary of this devastating fire approaches, I’ve written the story of how my family faced the loss of our home and our neighborhood. It’s a message of hope and resilience in the face of a life-altering event that forever divided my life into “before” and “after.”

 zero-to-sixty-book Zero to Sixty in One Year: An Easy Month-by-Month Guide to Writing Your Life StoryIn this book, I don’t tell you how to write your life story–I show you how I did it, and I’ll take you through the easy-to-manage strategy I cooked up for my year-long blog experiment, Zero to Sixty in One Year. By breaking it all down into manageable sections, with examples from each of my six decades of stories, I take the anxiety out of starting off with a blank page or screen. With tips on getting started, a variety of ways to refresh your memory, and those peeks into my blog, I invite you to begin writing your life story.Available for Kindle on AmazonAnd in several formats on Smashwords
