What’s your love story?

Nothing evokes our feelings like the power of love. Romantic love. Secret love. Forbidden love. Longing, lust, and loss. Any way you look at it, the passion runs deep and the stories are ripe for exploring. What’s your love story?

“I feel no judgment as I am led safely to share the stories of my life. Equally magical is listening to the stories of other women in my circle. I realize I’m not so different; and therefore, not alone.” Carol Lynn Everest, Sonoma, CA

When we read our pieces aloud, we were all in awe of how open-hearted, moving, and beautiful every story was. It wasn’t that we didn’t know how to write; what we needed help with was opening our hearts. That’s what Susan’s gentle support allowed us to do.” Betsey Crawford, Marin County, CA
