Care to learn how to record the memories of others and join a live discussion on writing for a changing social conscience?

In honor of Women’s History Month, I’ve been asked to present a Zoom program at the Sno-Isle Library System in Washington on March 23rd from 11 to noon Pacific Standard Time. Anyone can join in the FREE workshop/discussion on how to navigate the changing social conscience in writing. Seeing your smiling faces and hearing opinions from both readers and writers would be fabulous. Here’s a description of the program that the Adult Services Librarian wrote:

In writing the memoir of a friend’s girlhood in Java during WWII, author Sally Brandle was challenged by disturbing truths about privilege and oppression, as well as contradictions in historical accounts, depending on the perspective.

Sally will share strategies for encouraging recall of memories and events when writing or ghost-writing a memoir, then recounts the fascinating life of a girl uncomfortable with her mixed-race heritage, caught in the tragedy of wartime in the Pacific Theater. The story raises complex questions of race, privilege, politics, and social justice – questions that are as relevant today as they were during 1930s Dutch colonial rule of Java, Indonesia, and the ensuing Japanese occupation during WWII. It’s easy to register below, and you do NOT need to join this library.

In the meantime, I’m working on Book 4 in my series. This note from a reader made my month: “❤️– I just finished the third book in the series I hope there’s a fourth one coming ! I absolutely loved them all couldn’t put them down! Hope Elon has a child!”

About Sally Brandle

Author, horse lover, gardener, pastry enabler, and thankful wife and mother. Very proud of my novels, The Hitman's Mistake, Torn by Vengeance, and The Targeted Pawn. Multi-award winning author Sally Brandle weaves slow-burning romance into edgy suspense, motivating readers to trust their instincts. Growing up as a tomboy alongside brothers prepared her to work in a male-centric industry, raise sons, and create action packed stories featuring strong women. She thrives on creating unintentional heroines who conquer their vulnerabilities and partner with heroes to outwit cunning villains.

      Anyone can participate via Zoom by registering. I’m compiling a reference guide/hand out which includes my tips on triggering memories. Hope to see you!

  2. Your email link takes me to WordPress. When I tried to log in, my password was not accepted.  I do have a WordPress account associated with my website,, however it was set up by my web master who has since vanished. I have no idea how to access my website, or WordPress except by using the one password he gave me when he set up the account. The one that isn’t being recognized. Can  you advise me? Thanks!

    Wow, I remember recording memories back in the 80s of my in-laws and my mom and it was really interesting and also very difficult. Getting them to talk. But I got a lot of good stuff. I know this will be a wonderful course and I’m thrilled to hear there’s another book in the series.
