I love stories. All kinds of stories, but especially the ones I heard from my parents, grandparents, sister, aunts, uncles, and cousins. That’s why I started this website and blog in 2014. I share family stories and other things I think my readers would enjoy.
My personal goal is to keep my ancestors alive through their stories because I don’t want them to become just names and dates on a piece of paper. But I don’t want to be just a name and dates on a piece of paper either, so I’m writing my own life stories, too.
Besides being a blogger and a lover of family stories, I‘m also:
–A Writing Coach for Write-At-Home, an on-line writing program for middle and high school students where I’ve worked for 10+ years. Here’s a link to my coach’s page.
–The author of Easy Family History Journal: The Growing Up Years which is available on Amazon.com and The Government Girl, a novel I’m currently writing set in Washington, D.C. during World War 2.
–A family historian with 30+ years of research experience
–A certified Guided AutoBiography (GAB) instructor. GAB is a form of memoir/life story writing that uses weekly themes for class participants to write about. GAB is a semi-structured process for writing about our lives.
I can help you write your own life stories to share with others or for the purpose of life review. GAB is an effective way to write about your life, process life events, and find new meaning in your life. My Marking Your Milestones GAB classes meet live on Zoom. Sessions are 5 weeks long. Learn more about my classes here including dates and cost. You can learn more about Guided AutoBiography here.
