RUINED: a memoir

It’s fun to hear an author’s voice, especially when they write something as personal as memoir! You can listen to me read the Epilogue to RUINED — which is a Letter to My Daughters. I was grateful the publisher let me read this section for the Audio version of the book. If you like to absorb books through your ears, I hope you’ll give it a listen.

After RUINED came out, I did a lot of interviews. I’ll link just one — an hour long interview broken into four parts. The radio host is Michelle McKormick for “Sound Off West Michigan” (WJRW 1340 AM) in Grand Rapids, Michigan — the city where the “ruining” event happened. Michelle remembered the crime spree in 1978 and had many questions for me! We didn’t even pause for station breaks.
