Writing Books/How do I write a book about my life?

I too have had a similar experience. I feel it is an experience that I'm confident is one of which many will benefit. In fact, I'm certain it will add to the quality of the many "self-help" books on the shelves today that really will not lead others to really improve themselves or to create a plan for the remainder of their lives. As a School Counselor and educator of 30+ years, I find myself thinking often how to maximize my experiences as an abused child, a counselor, and a teacher of children in grade K-College systems. For an only child who grew up in poverty as part of a family circle where I was the only member who graduated from high school, college, and who received an M.Ed. in

Counseling, I have overcome. My story has all the ingredients of a story that I know many will want to read, but I must admit not knowing where to start. I would gladly share the revenue from what I know will be a good book for the skills and information needed to put it together.

Forgive me, but I forgot to thank you for your opportunity and not make me have to pay for it.

I can help you use your intellectual capital---you know---that NON-FICTION "book you've been meaning to write" out of your head and out into the world by answering questions about the publishing process and what your options are.


I work with numerous authors as well as other book professionals in this arena. In addition, I create tools for authors to use as they work through the process. Detailed information is available on my website,
