Great memoirs don't just happen -- there is a secret to writing them.
Learn how to story-board your memoir from an expert writing coach. There is a "golden thread" of meaning in every life, and when you find it and write about it you connect with a broad audience of readers who will not be able to put your book down.
"There are no 'ordinary lives' -- not really. The extraordinary is always there, just beneath the surface. You can find that thread in your life, and write about it." So says David Hazard, a veteran publishing consultant and bestselling author.
