Co-Author/I Know My Way Memoir:Always Remember to Color the Sky Blue

Linda Odubayo Thompson, the co-author of her mother’s memoir I Know My Way, subtitled always Remember to Color the Sky Blue, has been a professional writer for over ten years.

She has adapted a writing style to marry narration with a considerable amount of dialog; all to help her readers feel a part of the conversation rather than just looking in the window watching the action unfolding before them.

I Know My Way is a memoir about Linda’s Mother who was born visually handicapped, and would spend a lifetime struggling with operation after operation in a futile attempt not to become totally blind.

 In late 1986, Theresa’s perfect world came to a crashing halt when her soul mate Jerry lost his life to cancer. Theresa was so devastated that she poured her heart out on an old manual typewriter trying to capture all of her precious memories. It was after her very tragic death in 2008 that the ream of notes were found and became the starting point of her memoir.

Linda feels that she is up to the task of explaining the level of emotion needed to convey the tension at every turn because she is now almost blind herself and lost her first husband to cancer as well.

Linda has also been a marketing consultant in her first career as an Accountant and Financial Advisor, and has continued in this vein with her copywriting clients in the past ten years. She is confident that marketing strategies that are being put into place before, during and post launch of the memoir I Know My Way, will help make linda a sought after Indie author/book marketer.
