About the author
Patricia Charpentier turned loss into passion when she embarked on a journey to help people give those they love the gift of a lifetime. She grew up in South Louisiana surrounded by extended family but had no desire to understand the history and culture she was born into. By the time she became interested, all those who held the answers to her questions were gone. Through ghostwriting memoirs on behalf of others, co-authoring, editing, teaching, speaking and publishing, Patricia has motivated and guided hundreds in leaving written legacies for their families. Owner of Writing Your Life and LifeStory Publishing, Patricia offers ongoing workshops and classes, including online classes, and is a popular speaker and seminar leader throughout Florida and South Louisiana. She lives in Orlando with her husband Bob. Find out more about classes, workshops, presentations and how Patricia can help you write your life story at www.writingyourlife.org or contact her directly at writingyourlife@cfl.rr.com.
