I believe our life experiences are our truest wealth. When we share our stories with honesty and courage, we give the world an irreplaceable gift.

I welcome you to this space as a lover of great stories and, possibly, as someone who may want to write and publish your own. Whether your words are purely for yourself or you hope to reach millions with your message, I am glad to share what I’ve learned over a lifetime of interviewing, writing, editing and journaling.
