Tips for Writing Your Pet Memoir, Part 1

Bob Tarte  on Pet Life Radio

Wall Street Journal Best-selling author Bob Tarte shares tips on writing a memoir for publication, aided and abetted by Bill Holm, who also shares tips on becoming a character in someone else’s memoir. The two will also discuss humor writing in dull, unfunny terms in part one of this presentation for the Mid Michigan Word Gatherers Writing Group. Although the tips are for memoir writing in general, pet book author Bob swears by them when he isn't swearing at Book Character Bill, and they are derived from his publishing success with Enslaved By Ducks, Fowl Weather, and Kitty Cornered.


Bill Holm and Marcia Davis are writers living in Holland, Michigan. In addition, Bill is a character who is unflatterinly portrayed in Bob Tarte's books Enslaved by Ducks and Fowl Weather. He is a lifelong resident of west Michigan. Marcia was born in New York, raised in New Jersey, and writes poetry. She also writes for Herman Miller, Inc., an office furniture company.
