MY SISTER, MARION, CALLS IT “OUR GREAT EXPERIMENT.” Big sister Margaret (that’s me) calls it “Why not, and can-do.” It’s the release today (on the occasion of Marion’s “29th” birthday) of baby sister’s fourth book by none other than Margaret-turned-publisher. Happy birthday, Marion. I think that’s the most unusual gift I ever got you. :) It’s also a must-have for anyone doing memoir-style writing–whether in print or on a blog–since that’s what Marion’s been teaching to sold-out classes for 13 years. Her tips helped me finish my own memoir, due out next February, which is how I got the idea to publish them. Get the details (and the book) by the red-headed Roach sister and birthday girl. It’s amazing what you can whip up at your kitchen table these days!

a season for sisterhood (from 1989)
WE HAVE FOUND neutral ground, my sister and I. After three and a half decades, there is at last a place for us to be..

a way to garden has a baby sister (or 3)
NOT CONTENT TO SIT STILL OR TO HAVE JUST ONE SISTER, we have given birth to another. Blog, that is, and specifically a blog network..
I am the luckiest sister ever. Thank you.
I want one! I’m off to get it done.
Welcome, Kay. Watch out, Marion will have you “writing with intent,” as she calls it, and getting that manuscript DONE. She is fierce. :) See you soon again, I hope.
ok Roach sisters-between this and the upcoming book “and I Shall have some Peace” I’m a fan. So glad to hear about both of you.
@Rae: Sweet! We are glad to make your acquaintance, too. Thanks for your enthusiastic support. :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARION! Congratulations to both Roach sisters-I’m a big fan of sisters (I’m oldest of four girls ) and in particular both of you. So very happy for you! I’m off to the bookstore!!
Just ordered it. Can’t wait. Happy Birthday, Marion. And many thanks — to both of you — for words that lovingly (clearly) open our world.
(And, as a fellow redhead, it looks like there’s soon to be another Marion book in my cart. Will have to create a special bookshelf for the two of you. Near something green.)
I think that would be a great book for me… what do you think Margaret? Looks great!
Welcome, Mark. Yes, it would. It’s small, fun, can-do. Very inspirational. They probably have copies at Bookloft in Great Barrington, since the printer we used is part-owned by them. : )
