Instruction

I may be a bonafide writing geek, but what I love even more is spreading the love of writing to others.

Here are some places I get to do that:

"How to Write a Bullshit-free Memoir that Publishers Will Love"
It's easy to write a memoir. It's hard to do it well. Probably the biggest reason memoir gets a bad rap is because too often, the protagonist (that's YOU) is flat, shallow, one-sided, and suffers from a victim/hero complex. I'm not saying you are those things. But on the page? You might be. The good news is there's a solution. Follow my method for a bullshit-free Memoir.
