Welcome to

Memoir to Legacy, where you'll discover strategic guides and tips to write and publish a successful memoir!

Hi, I'm Carolyn V. Hamilton

Founder of the Memoir to Legacy programs

Want to chat about your memoir project?

Here are some of the questions you may have that we can discuss:

  • How do I share my life story with others when I have no idea where to begin?

  • What are my friends and family going to think when I write the truth?

  • How do I write dialogue when I can't remember exactly what was said?

  • I don't think I'm a good writer, so how can I do this?

  • Can I get sued for anything I write in my memoir?

  • I've published my memoir, so now what? How do I market it?


“I would not have completed the first rough draft of my memoir without your coaching, support, and guidance. You kept me on track! Thank you for all you have done to plug me into writing -- I am fulfilling a deep, meaningful purpose and loving it!!”

- Terry Crockett Esquivel
