By: Roberta Temes, PhD

Did you ever want to write your memoir but didn’t know where to start? Did you not know how long it would take to write a memoir? If you answered both of these questions in the affirmative, this book for you!

Writing a memoir doesn’t have to be difficult. But it can take a bit of organization. However, Roberta takes all the guesswork out of that process by laying out in step-by-step fashion how to write your very own memoir. The reader is encouraged to write her memoir as she is reading each chapter of the book. You will be guided day by day to writing your memoir in its entirety from beginning to end.

Roberta will help you to determine the major themes in your life, and how to keep digging through your memory bank for dramatic incidents which will make your memoir memorable and relevant to other readers. In addition, she shows how to bring all of your life incidents into a plot structure and organized whole for your memoir so that it is cohesive and interesting. Finally, she shows the reader how to put the whole manuscript together and get it ready for publication in whatever form it will take.

I loved the book, and as I was reading it, I drafted my own memoir. I always held back from getting those words on the page, but when I discovered that I could write my very own memoir in 30 days, I sprung for it. The process was cathartic and liberating. I encourage all individuals who always wanted to write their memoir to read this wonderful book.

Thank you Roberta for such a GREAT book!
