This book is dedicated to all the people who struggle to write their memoirs, but haven't been able to find that elusive starting thread. I hope this short guide gives you the leg-up you need to get started.

It's dedicated, as well, to Josh and Hollie who provided the inspiration for this effort during a conversation about capturing family history over a plate of pork belly and great wine.

It's dedicated to my wife, Gale, who has set by, patiently for the most part, these many years as I've pursued my craft as a writer, neither knowing where I'm going, when or if I'll get there, or if I'll know I'm there when I do.

And finally, I dedicate this to my children, Tracy, Joey, and Sean, and all my extended family for providing me with a family history that was largely empty for many years. A special shout-out to my son, Joey, who prodded me to write my own memoirs some years ago.
