#Writing #Memoir [Expert Interview] – The Blogger’s Lifestyle

guest feature

I was recently interviewed by Kathleen Aherne of  The Blogger’s Lifestyle , talking about writing in memoir. Please come and visit the rest of this interview on Kathleen’s blog.


Writing Memoir [Expert Interview]

Writing Memoir Intriguing interview with D.G.Kaye, author of 5 books in the memoir genre. 

“Everyone is unique and has a story to tell.  Observing other people on the street, in the mall or on the beach, I often wonder what fascinating tale they carry, a story waiting to be written. Let’s look into writing memoir, a literary bloggers genre.


What is your story? Most of us have given thought to one day writing our memoirs or assisting a parent or grandparent to write their story. Therefore, I am excited to have a guest today who has just published her fifth book in the literary genre of Memoirs.”


Writing Memoir with author Debby Gies


“Debby Gies is an accomplished nonfiction memoir author, writing under the name of D.G. Kaye. She writes about life, matters of the heart and women’s issues. I have read her first book entitled Conflicted Hearts. Any good book will keep your interest; a great book feels like you are right there feeling what the characters are experiencing. Conflicted Hearts is such a book, and that is why I read it cover to cover in one day. The sequel to this book has just been published.”


Debby lives in Toronto Canada with her husband.

She self-medicates with a daily dose of humor and is an optimist with a drive to succeed. She loves to cook, travel and play poker.

Her generous and warm personality is evident in her writing.  She writes about lessons from her very colorful and eventful life to empower and inspire others.”


Debby we are so honored to have you here to talk and share your knowledge with us.


Thank you, Kathleen, for taking interest in my work and inviting me here to your blog to talk about my writing and for the opportunity to offer some pointers about memoir writing.


Breaking Free


Debby, you were born in Toronto Canada, and describe your childhood as being emotionally neglected, leaving you with a severely deflated self-esteem.

You could have remained a prisoner of your past influences. However, it is evident that you have overcome and broken free from these invisible shackles.

Was there a trigger where you realized that you could break the mold and effect positive changes in your life? Is this what set you on the pathway of writing your memoirs?  CONTINUE READING THE INTERVIEW HERE

ANNOUNCING—Meno-What? – A Memoir, Memorable Moments of Menopause by D.G. Kaye

I am over the moon with excitement to announce that my new book (ebook version)Meno-What?  A Memoir will be published Tuesday June 10th on Amazon. As I had numerous delays getting this book out, I anticipated the birth of it Saturday June 7th (my birthday) so we could share the date, but as we all know, we can never rely on a due date! 🙂

NOTE: I would like to ask that if any of you would like to purchase a paperback copy to consider purchasing it direct from Createspace or here on my Meno-What? page by clicking the link that takes you directly to Createspace. The link will be available to purchase from sometime next week and I will post here when it becomes available.  For those of you who may have read my earlier post about Createspace, my royalties there are being held captive until I reach a $100 threshold before they will release my royalties. My books will be available on Amazon, but I made the error in sending family to Createspace to purchase my first book, Conflicted Hearts, as soon as it was live because they didn’t want to wait the two to three days it sometimes takes for the paperback to link to Amazon and after it was linked, my paperback sales have all come from Amazon, thus nobody any longer purchases through Createspace for me to reach the threshold for me to receive my funds. Once I reach that threshold, I will be removing the Createspace link.

Thank you all for your comments and emails, for your interest in the publication of my new book.
