a memoir-writing book for my sister’s birthday

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!

      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.

    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!!

  2. 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.)

      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. : )
