It is March and the blog tour has finally begun. My deepest thanks to Nicole Pyles of The Muffin (WOW! Women on Writing) for this lovely interview with me.

Please see the full interview page to enter the raffle for a book giveaway. The giveaway ends at 11:59 pm EST on March 15th.

WOW: First of all, congratulations on your book Acts of Forgiveness. What led you to write this book?

Ted: It was time. I am breaking silence: breaking silence about the past events and demons as well as attempting to clarify the meanings of life and my experience. As a person of faith, I am often challenged to become a more clear and cogent self in the midst of things that I may not understand. I am a writer by nature and training. That, too, cause me to commit to words and paragraphs the nature of experience, particularly the reflections on my own experiences. So I have assembled this memoir of portions of my life.

WOW: I think that’s incredible! What was it like recounting periods of your life to turn into a memoir that would be read by others?

Ted: Writing anything is the means of locating myself in time and space. It is the means I have found to become clearer about what I am thinking and why. As an extrovert I rarely know what I am thinking until I speak. What I speak I need to write down to remember. So writing is the means of exposure and remembering what I think and how I feel. Not a bad way to begin a project of this magnitude. I am delighted that you are joining me on this journey.

Do read the rest of the interview, enter that raffle, and come along with me on my blog tour. You don’t even have to leave home, and that’s probably a good idea for the moment.
