We are two sisters-friends-survivors-overcomers. We grew up in a terribly typical American suburb, just outside a major US city, which allowed us to be exposed to people/places that were culturally rich and varied. We are, and were encouraged to be, avid readers and to study and uncover the many mysteries of life; we are both partial to history, especially autobiographies. So, it’s both surprising, and not so surprising that we would come to the point when we would want to do some autobiographical writing of our own.
We’re writing because we’re interested in learning, sharing, comforting (ourselves and others) as we come to understand our own experiences. But we also want to exchange ideas and hear fresh perspectives on the myriad topics that we will address: family, physical and mental health, parents, humor, sadness, children, relationships, work, life choices, and more.
