There is most certainly an art to writing memoir. Memoirs are one of our favorite genres at Communicator Academy but one of the most difficult to write (well). This week’s guest, author and speaker Susy Flory, joins us and gives us her best tips and experiences writing memoir. Susy explains exactly what makes a memoir good, the different types of memoir and a few of the rules for memoir.
If you are a writer, or aspire to be, this episode is for you. Kathi describes this episode as a master class so pull out your notebook and listen in.

Susy Flory is the New York Times bestselling author or co-author of eleven books, including an upcoming memoir with NASA astronaut Scott Parazynski, called The Sky Below.
Susy grew up on the back of a quarter horse in Northern California and took degrees from UCLA in English and psychology, and has a background in journalism, education, and communications. She first started writing at the Newhall Signal with the legendary Scotty Newhall, an ex-editor of the San Francisco Chronicle and a one-legged cigar-smoking curmudgeon who ruled the newsroom from behind a dented metal desk where he pounded out stories on an Underwood Typewriter. She taught high school English and journalism, then quit in 2004 to write full time.
