I am Paula Riley, author/editor and freelance writer/photographer based in Reno, Nevada, a beautiful place to live and not remotely near Vegas. Well, it shares the same state, but not quite the same state of mind.

I love what I do: 

~ Freelance stories for magazines and newspapers. 

~ Book doctoring; Preparation of manuscripts for Kindle or other eBooks. Coaching writers through their process.

~ Advice about preparing print-on-demand books through CreateSpace.

My New TMCC Course: Write Your Life Story 
Wednesdays, Feb 12 -- March 4, 2020 (4 weekly sessions)
10:00 a.m. to noon
TMCC's Meadowood Center

Ain’t life a story? We say Yes! Our favorites offer plots and subplots, lessons and loves. In this class we’ll explore ways to organize a personal story for publication or posterity while referencing examples of published memoirs. We’ll talk about voice and pacing and themes, which sound daunting, but you’ll get the feel of them. Discussions will include your projects in progress, the sticky bits about naming names and dishing dirt, various publishing options—you know: the good stuff. This is a non-credit course.

I'm told that printed course guides will be available Nov 12 at the Meadowood Center on Neil Rd. C'mon -- let's write!
