MORENO VALLEY, Calif. (PRWEB) September 16, 2012
Author Lauren Thomas Griggs has written all her life. Now, she marks her debut into the publishing world with the release of her autobiography titled On Being.... Made available through Xlibris, this book will make readers smile, grow, and, ultimately, be comforted and assured that they are not alone.
Not in any way some rambling account of Griggs’ life in all its minute detail, On Being.... contains original, well-crafted, and heartily written stories of the author’s life experiences. While some of these events are light and funny, others are crushing and ghastly. Some are just everyday happenings. Her stories take many forms: poems, narratives, prose.
Through the pages, readers will learn what it was like for Griggs as a daughter, granddaughter, dog lover, proud African American, mother, teacher, Christian, godmother and retiree.
“As a girl, I wrote poems and such just for fun. As I got older, I realized that writing provided me with an outlet when my life took unexpected, sometimes tragic, turns and when I needed to say something better left unsaid,” Griggs shares. “This effort was rewarding at every turn. I learned even more about myself.”
Written to strike a resounding chord in readers’ lives, On Being.... is a stunning and brilliantly crafted memento of a life well-lived.
