Today we’re very pleased to introduce you to LindaJM. She’s our “Autobiography and Memoir Bookworm” Contributor on Squidoo.
Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
My niche is for books about people writing about themselves. Autobiographies are usually written by famous people who want to tell their life stories, so people will have more information on their childhoods up through their present lives. Memoirs are usually written by less prominent people to focus on one aspect of life, one issue, one set of circumstances that others will identify with.
Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
I was asked by one of my children to write a memoir, and so I started reading them. Before long, I was hooked. I love reading memoirs and autobiographies! It is a great way to learn the intimate details of someone else’s life. Nobody can write about an experience nearly so well as the person living through it.
Who had the most influence in your life?
My parents are the most influential people in my life, but if I had to choose just one author – it would have to be Julia Cameron, author of “The Artist’s Way.” Her encouragement for creative people helped set many thousands free of whatever might be holding them back from success. If you want to be creative in any area of life, her books can help overcome any inner resistance encountered.
