Welcome . . . and thank you for visiting the new Be the Hero of Your Own Story® website.
Here you will find quotes, references and frequent blogs about life-story or personal history writing that hopefully will encourage you to try writing a few personal stories of your own.
If you’re here via the Pam’s Pocketbooks link, thank you for your interest but they are no longer available for sale. Rather, I am sharing them with those who participate in my workshops or other events I facilitate. However, I may post them all here, for anyone who wants to access them.
There will be nothing for sale at this website and no advertising, endorsements or promotions. I will include a list of references and you alone can decide if they’re helpful or not. I am simply sharing what has been helpful to me about the value and power of life-story writing.
My inspiration for the limited scope of this website is a quote by legendary American writer, Edith Wharton (1862-1937), who became the first woman to win a Pulitzer Prize, in 1921, for her novel, Age of Innocence.
“There are two ways of spreading light; one is to be the candle, the other, the mirror that reflects it.”
So, please think of this website and my blogs as mirrors, reflecting back to you what I have learned that has been of value to me.
I hope with all my heart that at least some of what I share here might also be helpful to you.
Write on, my friends, write on,
