On July 10, 2023, the first shipment of my memoir Leaving Linda: A Moonie from the Boonies arrived. Needless to say, I was overjoyed. It’s been a long hard slog.
It was over ten years ago when I signed up for an online memoir-writing course. Since then, I joined my wife, Maree, at an in-person memoir writers’ class at Amicus Books in Marysville, then after that we both joined a local writers’ group in Marysville that met once a week. I also started this blog with the idea that some of my stories would be added to Leaving Linda.
As someone who when he first heard the word semicolon thought it was a birth defect, I needed a lot of help. Most of that assistance is recognized in the “Acknowledgements” section of my book. You can read that section, along with chapters one and two, in the “Look inside” or “Read Sample” feature on Amazon.
