About This Episode

Today we explore Julie D. Summers decades-plus journey writing her new book, Off My Knees: From Skid Row to Sunset Boulevard. Writing a memoir can be incredibly hard, and both Kathleen and Adanna jump into this conversation together as they try on a new platform for the podcast. Yet, Julie’s story is one of resilience and hope amid some very dark, troubling times.

This episode focuses more on “what makes a memoir?” than a how-to. It’s not just about having had struggles or a fascinating life, although Julie has had both. But more so the willingness to have the guts, chutzpah, and the ability to self-reflect. Julie gives tips throughout the conversation to help and encourage others seeking to write their memoir and for folks climbing out of hard times.

Julie’s memoir takes you through her life, from childhood to later in life. It’s a seemingly endless string of trauma, yet in how she writes her story, there is light at the end of the tunnel with every downturn. If you listen to this on its release day (10/13/22), the eBook will be free for the next five days starting 10/14 on Kindle.

“We really enjoyed this format for the podcast and will be incorporating it into our upcoming Season Three starting in January. Let us know if you did too.” – Adanna Moriarty, Producer, Talking Book Publishing Podcast.
