About My Story

At the heart of my memoir, I share the chaos I chased, the secrets I kept, and then how I let go to claim my truth and find connection with others. At times, my story is dark and harrowing, yet I promise, it will end on a bright new way of living. It reveals what we make of choices and consequences—and what these make of us.

Early Angst of Writing My Story

People told me to get my story out in any way I could. That got me started. When recalling memories to put on paper, I couldn’t forget that when life was incredibly difficult for me, people said, “Keep the faith” or “It will be okay.” When walking to my library job from my downtown bus stop, homeless folks with their signs asking for a hand-out would greet me good morning. When with friends, their difficulties would press on my heart. And then there were the news reports showing us social injustices.

Why I Wrote My Story

Those disconcerting moments pushed me to share my story. It is a story where I am not proud of some events. Yet, I persevered to get this book to you. I wrote my story to show that no matter what mistakes we made, or what hardships we endured, it is possible, through our own action to change things. This change creates inner peace, a sense of belonging, purpose, and meaning. -Elle-
