About Viga Boland

Viga Boland has authored 3 memoirs in 2 years. Her first memoir, "NO TEARS FOR MY FATHER", a true account of the sexual, mental and physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her father for 14 years won a Gold Medal in the 2014 Readers Favorite Book Awards.

At the request of her fans, Viga wrote her second memoir, "LEARNING TO LOVE MYSELF" in 2014. This book is her account of healing, recovery and self-discovery after abuse. Through the love of her spouse and children she learned to love herself. This is an inspiring story of redemption that gives hope to the abused.

In a complete departure from the style of her 2 previous memoirs, in 2015 Viga Boland published "The Ladies of Loretto", a delightful and humorous account of her 4-5 years as a student in a Catholic high school for girls only back in the 60's. Called "timeless" by teachers currently employed by that same school, "The Ladies of Loretto" is a joyous romp down memory lane for anyone who attended Catholic High Schools back when there were no cell phones and sex-ed and the nuns wore long black habits and carried yardstick rulers to keep students in check.

Now retired, Viga Boland currently runs memoir writing workshops for the Hamilton Public Library. She is also the editor/publisher of "Memoirabilia", a magazine for memoir writers. Memoirabilia features how-to articles, author interviews, book reviews and submissions by writers. Check it out and subscribe at http://www.memoirabilia.ca
