About Ina

Coach Ina is a proven expert on
Memoirs, Humor, Pets, Senior

On memoir writing, Coach Ina is known for helping people open up and write about their life stories, those who have never written before and those who have but may be new to the memoir genre. People who attend her one hour sessions and longer interactive seminars attest to her ability to help recall vividly "memories long forgotten," and to write them down in a compelling style. Ina's goal is to help everyone enjoy the writing, so when Sophie Chudacoff said, "It's just plain fun!" everyone in the class agreed.
