Surprise, surprise. I just discovered that Kindle already has my new book. No yet officially released, it’s available already on Kindle! The wonders of the digital world! So now people are buying it, downloading it and writing me–this is great.

No matter how many times a writer gets published, there is the thrill of knowing that your words and ideas are moving out into the world and being shared with others. I’m passionate about the power of memoir to heal and to create new connections with others. Every week in my work with other writers, I see how writing our stories helps us to be more creative in our personal lives and gives us joy.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year, and I hope that if you feel the desire to write, that today you will sit down and listen to that voice within you, and write.
