"My first 10 pages of the [book] proposal, an excerpt, have definitely come alive because of the class and I know it still has some ways to go…. Thanks. You have inspired me in so many ways – this has been of great help. You have been of great help.” l.h. Chicago, IL

“I had no idea how to approach writing a memoir until I took this class. I learned the craft of memoir writing, but more importantly learned about myself.” k. r. Palm Springs, CA

“Susan does an amazing job of integrating readings, writing, guided imagery, meditations, interviews and group discussion into a deeply creative experience.This class will help you take your memoir writing process to a new level.” m.c. St. Charles, IL

"When I enrolled in Mining Truth in Memoir, I didn't quite know what to expect. The class launched what has become a journey for me to discover the hidden things that have affected my writing. Some of the revelations were quite deep, but they set me on a path to healing from my past, as well as the courage to seek help for incidents long buried, but needing excavation. Susan's class offers a portal through which a writer can delve deeper into self through a series of exercises. Through the journey, the discoveries one makes is worth the agony of the process, and time it takes to get there. a.f. Los Angeles, CA

"I wasn't sold on how we can do this through nature, as I haven't always trusted nature, but Susan did it. I'm looking at nature and myself through much different eyes these days." v.s. Phoenix, Arizona
