For more than a decade, I’ve been speaking on the topic of “preserving one’s memories through memoir.” I also occasionally give talks on self-publishing.

Guest speaking engagements across North Florida include:  Advent Christian Village, Dowling Park; Delta2012 Mediterranean Cruise 019.jpg flipped Kappa Gamma, local chapter and Florida District II meeting in Middleburg; Gainesville Woman’s Club; Haile Plantation Friday Friends; local chapters of the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) International; Writers Alliance of Gainesville (WAG); University of Florida’s Museum Nights at the Harn; Matheson History Museum‘s Scribes of the Sunshine State; and Alachua County Library’s Local Author Showcase.


My memoir writing workshops meet for an hour or two each week for five weeks. If you would like to sponsor or take part in one of these workshops, please contact me.
