Donna Rankin Love and Walking For Our Lives (archived)


In her own words:
Since turning 80, I have written and published three books of stories based on my rich and varied life. Raising four sons born within five years. Running a tutoring center in my home for dyslexic students. Walking across America in the Great Peace March. Remodeling houses in Mexico. Now I live in Capitola, CA, a beach resort on Monterey Bay.

To this day, I continue to write and to speak to audiences about the pleasures in telling our stories. To people who are intimidated by writing their lives, I say, "Write your lives one tale at a time. Remember, you don't have to start at the beginning!"

 Follow my blog, You Don't Have to Start at the Beginning, here for my thoughts on writing, sneak peeks from upcoming books and updates on memoir writing workshops.

If you are interested in scheduling me for an appearance or talk on memoir writing, or joining one of my memoir workshops, please email me at lovedonna@sbcglobal.net.

Walking For Our Lives is available for direct purchase from Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/Walking-Lives-Donna-Rankin-Love/dp/193553050X

Blessed are the peacemakers...
a white cop, a black kid

Arnold Penxa is a white cop from black Detroit, Michigan determined to save the lives of children no matter the cost, no matter the color. He is an ex war veteran and retired Detroit policeman, now working for a private school security firm,and he sniffs out a conspiracy for a multiple school shooting. The problem is that nobody wants to believe him except for a few close friends, so he's forced to act mostly alone to bust up the plot. Forget the usual suspects. This is the Mad Motor City where the line between common sense and criminal behavior is never clear.
