Click cover, if you want the book.

I just received notice that TellTale Souls Writing the Mother Memoir: How to Tap Memory and Write Your Story Capturing Character & Spirit was picked a winner in the San Francisco Book Festival “Best Books of the Spring” competition in the How-To category!  They say it was a tough competition that attracted entries from around the globe.

What more can I say? I’m absolutely thrilled about this honor!

Well, The Story Woman has this to say, “When you write your very own short, true story about your mother or someone who made you feel like a daughter or a son—you’ll be thrilled, too!”

Many of them have never written a story before dipping their toes in soulful waters to write from their hearts — they come away as master swimmers!

    I also want to say Congratulations and thank you so very much. I can’t tell you how this book is so timely. Everyone I know has someone that has Alzheimers. My Mother-in-Law has it now and we are just beginning to see signs. Even her disposition has totally changed. I am so thankful that you wrote this and that your are sharing.

I hope you like the book, and that you’ll write a story or two and/or encourage people you know to write a short memoir capturing the character and spirit of their mothers and others. It is important work, as you’ll see when you take the journey into writing the Mother Memoir. Thank you for taking the time to share you words with me.
