Memoir Anthology Published Today!

TalesAnthologyCover

In the spring of 2014 I entered an essay into a memoir writing contest at womensmemoirs.com. I am honored to have my essay ‘Kernel’ among the selected works in Tales of Our Lives: Reflection Pond, which released today as an ebook. As part of its launch, the anthology is being offered for only $.99 for the next couple of days. In my published essay, I share a personal moment where I realize that I am not as isolated in my circumstances as I thought; the world became smaller. Enough of a hook?  🙂

I appreciate this book because along with the other thirty eight stories, it also includes writing prompts and tools to help anyone record the events and people that have made an impact in their life. Taking the time and effort to record my personal history has been so meaningful for me and I would encourage anyone to try it. It’s hard and it takes courage to write from a personal place. But it’s also powerful and can be illuminating as to what is revealed. You don’t ever have to show it to another living soul. But you may want to. You never know what could happen. Since I have started to write seriously it has been such an adventure!

Hope your new year is off to a stimulating start. Wishing you all the best to you and yours, Molly

  2. Molly, I read your essay. Well done!
    From my time in Topeka I too remember Fred Phelps and family all to well. My father was the Assistant Dean at Washburn Law School and as head of admissions the one thing he is still embarrassed by is letting the children of Fred Phelps attend Washburn Law School. He says they were more than had the credentials and were brilliant students, but…
    I also remember a time that I was at lunch with a vendor, who was visiting Payless Shoes, at the Ramada Inn in Topeka, Fred and crew happened to be picking in front of the building (I can’t remember why). The vendor I was with just happened to be gay and we decide to go up and introduce ourselves to Fred – after shaking the vendor’s hand and learning that he was gay Fred threatened to sue him.
    While not a father, I also lost best friend to aids – he was early in the game, 1983. I remember going to Denver to his memorial service and cursing him and whomever for leaving us so soon. He was a brilliant sculptor, and I sponsored a retrospective of his work in Denver that same year.
    Thanks for sharing your story with us. I was moved.
    FYI – Mitzi and I have rented a condo in the Kansas City so we can be closer to family. We still have our place in Colorado and intend on moving back and forth with the season – winter and summer in Colorado and spring and fall in Kansas City. We need to get together again. Tom
