Ignoring the “Memoir Schmemoir” voice

Kay Clark Uhles

Everything Kay Clark Uhles knows about writing she learned from her car. On August 12, Kay will talk about how she learned to ignore the “Memoir Schmemoir” voice on road trips, how beginning writers can apply those lessons to their writing, and how she can help experienced writers to navigate their projects through brainstorming, editing, and coaching.

Kay has worked with hundreds of authors and contributors on sharpening the craft of writing. Kay has been called a “rock star” when it comes to brainstorming, creating clear outlines, writing engaging text, and editing. She believes that all people have a story to tell and makes the process easy and fun. “She’ll make you look good.”

Kay is a retired community college administrator and former court reporter, with a Masters in Adult Education, as well as training and experience in Motivational Interviewing—which is probably why she’s been called “not so scary for an editor.” Kay recently published her first solo book, Parts, Pieces & Particulars: A Primer for Single Moms Raising Sons and Single Dads Raising Daughters and is currently working on a novel.

Carin Shulusky
Author Spotlight

 

Carin Fahr Shulusky is a wife, mother, grandmother, and former marketing professional. Not one to take an easy retirement, she published her first book, In the Middle, in 2021. She also contributed a chapter in the anthology, Living Mt tRuth, about the personal legacy and impact of former US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had on her life as a young marketing professional for a Fortune 500 company in the early 1970s.

Her first book, In the Middle, is part fiction and part memoir about being suddenly forced into the role of caregiver to her elderly mother while also having to juggle her already demanding career and family life. Her second book, My Lost Year, is the fictional account of a family facing the upheaval of the 2020 global pandemic.

Make sure to attend her author spotlight to learn more about what inspired her to write her story at the age of 70, and how she was able to successfully tell her story and to continue writing.

“Life inspires me. I write from things I know and see in my own life. My first book, In the Middle, was inspired by my own struggle to care for my beloved mother as her health declined.  My chapter of Living my tRuth is my “me too” moment that I’ve waited to tell. My next book, My Lost Year, is a fictional story of the couple navigating the pandemic, but many of the things they’ve experienced come from my own pandemic experiences, or of those close to me.” Carin Fahr Shulusky
