friends of “True to Life”

Serious boasting here – c’est mon job, as they say in Quebec. I’ve been receiving emails about “True to Life: 50 Steps to Help You Tell Your Story,” which have made me happy. Apparently it is working for readers and writers.

Here are recent comments from two very impressive gentlemen. Thank you, sirs!

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed reading your book True To Life. It’s practical, direct, motivating. Well done.

I very much enjoyed your book on memoir writing and obtained a lot of
useful information from it. I made notes but will pick up a hard copy in
Toronto for reference – am seriously “unpacking” and will at some point return
to the beginning and make revisions to accommodate the excellent tips
you provide.
I particularly appreciate the humour in the book – the “running and
skipping granny” had me on the floor.
