Reviews Needed!

Dear friends, my memoir “Breaking Free; 45 years in the wrong body” could really use reviews to help generate a more substantial online presence. Since signing on with Brainspired Publishing, all the positive reviews on Amazon disappeared, and I’m left with just a new revue that manages to misgender me (I wish I knew how to delete it). It is traumatizing to check on Amazon and see that review. Now, it’s not my publishers’ fault, not at all. I had to delete the old link so that they could set… Read more Reviews Needed!

Achievable Goals.

I have never been good at setting goals or being exceptionally well organized; one could say that I’m something of a pantser (fly by the seat of your pants type). However, now that I feel more comfortable as a writer and know that I can tell a story, I am setting two goals for myself regarding this thriller I’m working on. 1.

I find that having a mixed bag of friends can… Read more Creating new characters

My life has been one of drawing and painting, describing and sharing… Read more Memoir news and new Thriller in the works!

A Trans memoir, a human story.

My memoirs, what I wrote of my life from the point of view of feeling trapped in the wrong body is influenced by all manner of things, among them is the book Conundrum which I read when I first began my transition.  One aspect I seem to have borrowed from her writings is that I have to some degree, lessened the trauma and pain I experienced throughout. This is in part because I wished to be encouraging of others who are going through similar life changing events and also it’s… Read more A Trans memoir, a human story.
