Do you have a story aching to be told?

Memoir is a unique category of literature.. Let me show you how to turn your experience into a compelling book that’s ready for publication – whether it’s a literary memoir, a memoir/biography hybrid, or investigative memoir. The Art of Memoir shows you the complete process:

Taking you from page one to finished draft of a publication-standard book-length true story…

……..WITHOUT needing critiques

………WITHOUT spending years on the draft

……….And WITHOUT feeling miserable as you write!

This memoir program lived up to its promise and more. I finished my memoir in the first week, instead of the last week. Then, somehow, I reviewed all 20 chapters and reduced 1M+ words to a mere 285K in a single ‘book’ document by the end of the course. AND I have a hook, plot points outline/table, query and synopsis. After twelve years working on my memoir, this was quite incredible!
