In this episode:
Liz Alterman and I discuss the dos and don’ts of writing a memoir, in particular how to write about people who have not been very nice to you, and are the reason you’re writing your story in the first place!

Sad Sacked is Liz Alterman’s memoir about her and husband being made redundant at the same time, and the effect it had on their large family. This is still a timely subject as we move into winter and prices are going up.

She tells me about her transitions from financial services to journalism and from memoir to fiction. Workshopping was the biggest breakthrough for her.

We then go on to talk about how to make more time in your busy week to write and Liz shares she had to make the change from long writing sessions to writing on the hoof.

Her first adult suspense novel, The Perfect Neighborhood, came out in July 2022 and is available on Amazon.

Her memoir is currently in audio only, but you can order it at your local library or, if you’re a member of Audible Plus, it’s free as part of your subscription.
