Twisting the Plot

Nov 30, 2021

At 75 years of age, with life of plot twists that include physical, emotional and relational challenges, Ronda Tamerlane has decided it’s time to tell her story. 

Ronda’s 12 in 12 2021 project is to write her personal memoir. 

Listen to this week’s Twisting the Plot Podcast as
Ronda talks with us about how writing her memoir is giving the opportunity to take on new perspectives, let go of resentments, deepen her connection to the many roles she has played, and the many lives she has led. 

As a retired psychotherapist, Ronda hopes that by telling her story, she will help to normalize and give voice to the experience of depression, anxiety, and generational trauma.  

No more keeping quiet for Ronda. 

She is both speaking out and listening more deeply to herself through her writing. 

It is a memoir to grow by. 

And growing is ongoing.
