A Collection of Memoir Essays

by Sally Petersen

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Sally Petersen’s second book, Tea Pie, Love and Reality, is memoir in a series of miniatures. Many less than a page, they are poignant and funny, unique and universal. Like tapas or small plates, each is sufficient when sampled alone, or you can make a full meal. Petersen, a former journalist, columnist and essayist, illuminates experiences from a Midwestern childhood to a Fortune 500 corporate world, with stops along the way for mountain climbing, youngsters, travel, creativity and pushing life to the edges. She lives in the wine country between Oregon’s coast and mountains with her husband, Jim, also a writer.
Description
Sally Petersen’s second book, Tea Pie, Love and Reality, is memoir presented in a series of miniatures. Many less than a page, they are poignant and funny, unique and universal. Like tapas or small plates, each is sufficient when sampled alone, or you can make a full meal. Petersen, a former journalist, columnist and essayist, illuminates experiences that range from a Midwestern childhood to a corporate world in a Fortune 500 company with stops along the way for mountain climbing, youngsters, travel, creativity and pushing life to the edges. She lives in the wine country between Oregon’s coast and mountains with her husband, Jim, also a writer.
About the author
A former journalist, columnist and businesswoman, Sally now writes short essays, observations, stories and musings that she calls miniatures. Gathered into Tea Pie, Love and Reality, a perfect little book for gift-giving, they are stories of joy and victory, loss and sorrow, hopes and dreams. Before the miniatures, for thirteen years Sally ran a one-person business, The Write Touch, with specialties in writing, editing and desktop publishing. She used that successful experience to create workshops, then wrote The Real American Dream, which retained her personal blend of coaching and business insights. Sally lives in the wine country between Oregon's coast and mountains with her husband Jim. Memoir occupies her writing time now. She loves the task of teasing meaning from an ordinary life growing up on the Midwest plains, then reacting to the great events of eventful decades.
