writers at conference‘Tis the season for writing conferences! As you know, we writers tend to be solitary people—we have to be willing to slave at our desks alone for months and years while we write our book.

Don't Call Me Mother (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: At the age of four, a little girl stands on a cold, windy railroad platform in Wichita, Kansas to watch the train take her mother away. For the rest of her life, her mother will be only an occasional and troubled visitor. Linda Joy Myers’s compassionate, gripping, and soul-searching memoir tells the story of three generations of daughters who long for their absent mothers, yet unwittingly recreate a pattern that she was determined to break. Accompany Linda as she uncovers family secrets, finds solace in music, and begins her healing journey. Learn how she transcends the prison of childhood to discover light in the darkness of strife, abuse, and undiagnosed mental illness. Don’t Call Me Mother is an inspiring chronicle of perseverance, healing, and the transformative power of forgiveness.

Linda Joy Myers, Journey of Memoir: The Three Stages of Memoir Writing

Deena Metzger
