Liane, you are an excellent mentor for the memoir-writing process. You guided me skillfully through draft after draft. In the process of much rewriting and reflection, I was able to identify deeper issues, as well as the true heart of the story. A real eye-opening experience! Your feedback made such a difference. Thank you!
