Ok, I'm commenting. I would LOVE a copy. And if I get published perhaps it would make you even prouder.

Even after having taken a class on memoir, I still have so many questions. What to put in and leave out? How to write a non-fiction when I can't remember what I had for lunch last week. And, most important, does my truth serve others?
