Help to Write Your Memoir
Mentoring for the next — and every — step of your writing journey
Praise for Denis Ledoux:
You have the heart of a teacher, not just an editor, and I have become a much better writer because of your attention. A publishing professional who subsequently reviewed the manuscript told me that the writing was good and engaging. I have you to thank for that. You were very helpful.—Denise Swasty
