Look forward to meeting you all and learning together in May 2013, in Lincoln City, OR. I'll be talking about memoir writing, and Salt in Our Blood: The Memoir of a Fisherman's Wife. Check out www.saltinourblood.com for photos, interviews and excerpts. And you can "Like" the page "Salt in Our Blood," and see photos and updates, on Facebook. Best regards, Michele Longo Eder
