Drawing from more than 25 years of literary know-how and modeled after a 15-week college course, this manual provides guidance for seekers wishing to delve further into self-exploration through writing. Extending beyond the idea that memoir writing intends to put past events into a more understandable current perspective, the guide maintains that keeping a document of one’s life is actually the basis of a psychic process called “soul work,” which manifests as a desire to experience the state of being alive to the fullest. This unusual approach to memoir writing aims to generate more honest and genuine results that come from inner needs rather than outer expectations. Intended to clarify a writer’s developmental path, this resource emphasizes the importance of self-awareness and the need for dealing with difficult material that actually alters the writer in the process, resulting in significant growth of the soul.

For countless years, emotional pain has been a catalyst for creation. Musicians and mystics, artists and authors have transformed personal tragedy into works of sublime beautyand in doing so, often found inner peace. The Art of Cathartic Memoir explicitly shows writers how to recast their experiences into art while encouraging them to find such inner peace. It offers exercises, structure, and inspiration based on a wide range of literary, psychological, and spiritual sources. Drawing upon the ideas of Carolyn Myss, St. John of the Cross, and many others, The Art of Cathartic Memoir supports writers in constructing their life stories in a mystical yet artful way. Whether writing a full-length book or a shorter piece of memoir, The Art of Cathartic Memoir facilitates transformation on many levels and speaks to writers, why they need to create, what keeps them from it, and how to overcome resistance. Krista has been a friend and trusted editor for several years. She has worked with me and my brother on a manuscript authored by our deceased father. As a skilled writer, Krista quickly identified and sensitively corrected the technical and grammatical issues involved in dealing with a non-native English speaker. More importantly, she readily grasped the meaning and intent of what was written. She was able to delve into what our father was thinking and his motivation as he wrote particular passages and recalled specific scenes. A. Zygielbaum, Lincoln, Nebraska Kristas workshop and gentle facilitation enabled even the beginning writer to tap into skills never before realized. Her workshop gave me permission to play with words in my head and allow those words to dance on paper. D. Brown, Lincoln, Nebraska

Richard Lacey, former Pittsburgh Steeler turned detective, is contacted by Jeanette Green to resolve the shooting of her deceased, compulsive gambling husband, Syd. Lacey tells her to let sleeping dogs lie, but she insists on an investigation. What seems like a routine investigation turns into a sack of scorpions when both the Mafia and the State of New Jersey take interest. Lacey’s pregnant wife, Marilyn, is kidnapped, pitting Lacey against the mob. Lacey finds that Syd was involved in the construction of a new center in Atlantic City. He works with government authorities to untangle the involvement of the mob in Atlantic City construction. When a hit on Lacey by the mob fails, government agencies make a clandestine move on the mob. Later, Lacey discovers that the mob was not involved in the hit on Syd Green. He finds the solution much closer to home.

This book is the condensed version of my life. It contains the things I can remember most about what has occurred in my life. It is in effect the autobiography of Jonathan Daniel Beckmon which is my full legal name given to me by my parents Raymond Beckmon and Linda Helms (her maiden name) and assigned to me in the United States of America where I was born. At my current stage of life my only real goal is to get married. I have been looking for a suitable spouse for at least 15 years as of the time this book is being published with no luck. Its very hard to find a decent moral woman with the current state of our society and general lack of moral values in the United States of America. I honestly feel that had I been born in Russia I would have been married long ago. I had much better luck finding women there that were interested in my qualities and that were decent human beings. However I have only managed to make it to Russia once as it is beyond my current financial means to go there a lot until I find a wife. Since I refuse to lower my very high standards Ive lived out my life alone. It is better to die alone than to marry a wicked woman. You can read the book to find where the codename Lehi comes from.
