Author Lynn Cook Henriksen, aka The Story Woman, is answering questions on The Bookcast not only about the innovative, five-step “TellTale Souls Method” on the art and craft of writing memoir, but also why it’s important to take time today to write a bio-vignette about a significant mother figure to keep alive her character and spirit now and into the future. Intimate stories, “Mother Memoirs,” about all kinds of mothers from all sorts of places link our spirits and provide a higher level of understanding springing from the essence of the female soul. 40 such stories, written by “TellTale Souls,” are woven throughout the thought-provoking prompts and inspiring exercises in the award-winning “TellTale Souls Writing the Mother Memoir: How to Tap Memory and Write Your Story Capturing Character & Spirit.”
During The Bookcast author interview, conducted by veteran interviewer Bill Thompson, Henriksen introduces a method for writing memoir with a distinct and refreshing difference, adding new twists that invite readers and writers into a spirited and soulful world, because she knows tapping memory and learning to write with honesty about intimate, often trying, relationships is the most valuable form of writing. She will reveal how the book takes readers on a journey through emotional terrain to access the deepest spiritual truths of intimate relationships while learining to write short, true stories (bio-vignettes, a term she coined). It’s a gift to writers and would-be writers. The significance of “Keeping Spirits Alive” through writing the Mother Memoir has the power to move people and change awareness.
