    The Healing Benefits of Writing and Publishing a Memoir

    in Motivation

    A memoir begins with the need to tell a story. The story often contains a momentous life situation which the author needs to excavate and examine in order to discover how the event shaped his or her values and opinions. Telling the story in a way that readers can see themselves can create a healing experience for both the writer and the reader. In my case, I decided to break my silence about my husband's death in the Vietnam War.

    Ruth W. Crocker, Ph.D is an author, writing consultant and expert on recovery from trauma and personal tragedy. Her book, Those Who Remain: Remembrance and Reunion After War describes her experience following her husband’s death in Vietnam and how she found resources for healing. An excerpt has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

    Turning Life Experiences into a Compelling Memoir - Guest Jon D'Amore

    in Writing

    Our guest Jon D’Amore was first published at 10 when a story he’d written about the Civil War was distributed throughout the county school system. During that time, he began studying the guitar. By his 20s, having honed his love and knowledge of music, Jon was traveling cross-country as a musician.

    While touring, Jon was also a feature writer for New Jersey’s 3rd largest newspaper, The Passaic Herald News, allowing him to enjoy the best of his favorite worlds…playing music and writing. Eventually, he found a different side of life. He said, “Goodbye and it’s been a slice!” to the music business and entered the corporate world. By the millennium another
    change had taken place. For more than two decades, Jon knew that within him there was the desire and ability to write, so he drove to Los Angeles and started as soon as he arrived.

    As an insider with no mob ambitions, Jon had been a trusted ear and learned of the life and death manipulations that made friends and relatives from his world disappear. When the smoke cleared, Jon was one of the few left standing. The others were either dead or in prison. The Boss Always Sits In The Back isn’t “just another mob story.” It reveals the demise of the mobsters who ran northern New Jersey…as told by someone who was there.

    He didn’t stop until the manuscript and screenplay for The Boss Always Sits In The Back were completed. Jon has written and co-written several screenplays and articles. He still resides in California where he continues to write…and listen to music and will share what it takes to write a compelling memoir and publicize it.

    Helouise “Halo” Matzelle was born in the city of Delft, (The Netherlands), on October 19, 1964. Three months after her birth, Helo’s parents decided to emigrate from the Netherlands to the United States. Boarding a ship, they traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to Chicago with only two hundred dollars to their name. Chicago, Illinois where her parents experienced discrimination of their mixed marriage, which was illegal in eighteen states at the time. 

    Later in life Helo became a busy and faithful wife, devoted mom, caring daughter, loving sister, and dedicated friend. She cherished life and took none of it for granted. Or so she thought. Life was busyness, blessings and excitement. She had a beautiful home, a great husband, incredible children, and a cute dog named Grace.

    Then one day, everything changed and shock took hold. Helo was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor sitting over the main artery in her brain. On the day of diagnosis she sat quietly with her husband, Rich. He took her hands and softly said “time to pray.” Her prayer was simple. “God, please make something beautiful out of this.” Little did she know what God alone was capable of, but over time she discovered how vast His affections are. 

    "Machines beeping, the blur of medical staff running, a crash cart whizzing into an ICU room, was there any hope? 
    A young woman lay, packed in ice, as doctors attempted to somehow stop the swelling in her brain that threatened to take her life… and her family waited. "

    Join Helo as she tells us how God can replace fear with courage and discouragement with determination, if you let Him. 

    It is my profound pleasure to introduce you to my very special guest Helo Matzelle!!

    EP#19 Memoir meet Poetry: Kira Lynne Allen crafts debut book in two genres

    in Writing

    In May, I interviewed author Kira Lynne Allen about her new book Write This Second out now on Prashanti Press. In this episode, Kira explains how she used various strategic moves to recreate voice and pace in her work. She tells you what she thinks of the publishing process (as opposed to self-publishing) and whether it helped or hurt her work. You'll also hear what obsession fueled her desire to finish the book by October 2014.

    Kira is an artist in the most robust sense of the word. In the interview part that is on my editing floor through no fault of its own, we talk about her collage work which she's been doing for years. Actually, her mother also had the talent. In this image which accompanies her blog post, "You Call It A Book, I Call It A Movement or 7 Reasons Why I Founded: Write This Second," we see a young compilation Kira - a mix of real photos and sketch work which she drew herself.

    I absolutely loved this book and would read it again, so I advise you to check it out. But in the words of the first book reviewer I knew, "don't take my word for it." 

    “Kira Lynne Allen’s first full length book of poetry is so gorgeous, so rich in honesty, truth, pain and healing, beauty and rage and humanity, that it is going to change lives. It gives permission, and that means that it gives life. It gives off heat and fresh air. It exposes, encourages, challenges, delights. I found it thrilling.” —Anne Lamott, New York Times bestselling author of, Small Victories: Spotting Improbable Moments of Grace; and Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
