Denis LedouxLifestories have always played an important role in Denis’ life. He grew up in a three-generation home in Maine with paternal grandparents who lived upstairs.  As a child, he heard tales of his extended family and their history recounted by the family storyteller, his mémère. Is it any wonder then that he devoted himself to help to write your memoir

As a short story writer, he drew on family characters, settings, and stories for his fiction. In 1989, he won the Maine Fiction Award for Mountain Dance & Other Stories. His other fiction titles include What Became of Them and Other Stories from Franco-America, and Lives in Translation: An Anthology of Contemporary Franco-American Writings which he edited. Denis’ short fiction has twice been honored with the Maine Writing Fellowship Award (1991, 1996), an NEA-based merit award.

Help to Write Your Memoir: Destined to Happen

It was a natural leap from his own family stories embodied in PastWorkshopautobiographical fiction to helping others to record their stories in well-written accounts that apply all the techniques of fiction writing to autobiography, family reminiscence, and scrapbooking.

In 1996, Denis was named Lifewriting Professional of the Year by the Association of Personal Historians.
