If you cross-pollinate the humor of Dave Barry with the sagacity of Robert Fulghum you will taste the flavor of my memoir, Some Days Chicken, Some Days Feathers. It begins with my earliest recollections in Oregon and ends as I am discharged from the Marine Corps due to Vietnam injuries. It is a comedy mixed with Greek tragedy, but really wants to be a musical as fun as Mama Mia.
At age 61, I was earning a Masters In Teaching degree. As part of my student teaching I taught a section on memoir writing to 8th graders. I thought "Hey this is fun," and so I began. Everybody has their own story. Part of my mission is to encourage readers to get started and I will conduct funfilled, hands-on memoir workshops to get you started!
