LAURA HEDGECOCK is passionate about telling stories and connecting with others. She comes by that passion honestly; her grandmother, Hazel Crymes, wrote throughout her life. However, her grandmother wrote in secret; Laura believes in sharing.
When she’s not writing, Mrs. Hedgecock enjoys spending time with her husband, her young-adult sons (when they’re available), playing soccer, nature photography, and finding her roots.
Memories of Me: A Complete Guide to Telling and Sharing the Stories of Your Life taps into the passion of connecting with loved ones through memory narratives. It empowers hobbyists to create a legacy of family stories and memory episodes through prompts, in-depth brainstorming exercises, writing samples, and just enough writing tips for writers to take pride in their projects.
