Thanks to Sheila Bender, who provides special links to my work on her website, 
Writing It Real. Portions of the site are reserved for members only, where my stories and articles are found.  For you writers out there, I suggest you check out this site and utilize Sheila’s uniquely useful writing instruction and mentoring through membership. Sheila has been an online friend for years, until I met her at a Texas writing retreat. Sheila Bender is a gem!


Body Language, a true story of me experiencing a traditional Turkish Bath. This introduces my first draft, then Sheila’s recommendations for improvement, and my revised and final submitted narrative. Sheila published all three elements as a learning example for other writers. It is published on Writing It Real (WIR) website.


Navigating the On-line Publishing and Promotion World (Fall 2013), a narrative about how I self-published my memoir and promoted it early after publication in response to questions from Sheila Bender, the author of Writing It Real website. 


From Idea to Publication (Fall 2013), an interview with Sheila asking the questions and me explaining how I developed my memoir from the conception of an idea to the actual publication of At Home in the World.


A Coming-of-Age Vignette, Sage Advice, and the Writing Exercise They Inspired published on Sheila’s website. This is Sheila’s way of instructing by example by using a scene from At Home in the World.


I'd enjoy hearing your electronic voice.
