I have reviewed this book as a reference for my thesis. It is full of writing exercise toward creating a spiritual memoir. The author is very well versed and very well educated to teach writing and this book can lead even the nonwriting type into the serious project of writing a memoir. I would highly recommend using the book to accomplish such. She covers everything from getting started to editing and publishing. I hope to use some of this in developing a memoir workshop.
I was looking for something to enliven an action character for my next book and began reading this at the local library, I liked it so well I picked it up for my private writing library. (Note: I am not writing a memoir, but I do write in limited third person or first person in extreme circumstances.)
