Linda Joy Myers

Last year on a panel at the San Mateo County Fair/Peninsula Festival,  I had so much fun with buddies Martha Alderson and Luisa Adams and moderator Tory Hartmann.  This year buddy Margaret Davis asked if I would like to be on a panel with her. So, two months ago,  when Bardi Rosman Koodrin at San Mateo County Fair asked me if I wanted to present again, I said “yes!” She’s a joy to work with.

2010 San Mateo County Fair Peninsula Festival logo

How to Prepare for a Presentation as a Panelist

Margaret Davis did a load of work identifying California Writers Club members who have published novels, and would be available on Saturday June 19, 2010 at 2:00pm to be on the panel at the San Mateo County Fair/Peninsula Festival. The four panelists:  Margaret Davis, Jon Cory, Judith Marshall, Teresa LeYung Ryan.

Margaret came up with a fabulous title and description for our talk:

“SO YOU WANT TO WRITE A NOVEL”
Four Bay Area novelists discuss their experiences and offer tips for aspiring fiction writers.

Margaret also asked us for our bios and photos and she emailed the compilation to Bardi.

Geri Spieler graciously said “Yes” to being our moderator and asked each panelist to provide questions and topics that we would like to cover.  Here are Geri’s questions and the answers I emailed to her:

Geri:  I’ll introduce you so please send me no more than three sentences about you and your work.

  • Author Teresa LeYung Ryan wears two hats.  As a novelist, she uses her book Love Made of Heart to shed light on secret agonies suffered by mothers and daughters in domestic violence.  As a writing career coach and creator of Build Your Name, Beat the Game: Be Happily Published, Teresa helps writers identify their mission statements to attract agents, publishers and fans.

Geri:  Send me two questions regarding writing craft.

  • Teresa, in interviews you’ve revealed that the themes and subject matters in Love Made of Heart are autobiographical.  Did you start out writing a memoir or a novel?
  • Teresa, would you share one trade secret about story-telling?

Geri:  Please communicate with the other three panelists if you don’t already know each other. I know Margaret Davis and Judith Marshall; I will study Jon Cory’s website.

Geri:  Please tell me anything particularly unique about you that pertains to your writing

  • “I am the only Teresa LeYung Ryan (my middle name LeYung was created to honor my mom), but, my protagonists represent the many women, children and men who survived similar experiences that I have.  I was a witness to domestic violence–a girl who felt helpless, ashamed, angry, guilty and voiceless. Decades later, I found a way to help the child-in-my-heart. Through the characters in Love Made of Heart, I encourage survivors of violence and witnesses to violence to find and fortify their own voices through writing.”  Teresa LeYung Ryan   http://LoveMadeOfHeart.com

Panelists:

Margaret Davis (Straight Down the Middle) is a sociologist who is also the author of Families in a Working World and A Practical Guide to Organization Design.  Her second novel, Katie Carlisle, will be available soon. www.margaretdavisbooks.com

Jon Cory (A Plague of Scoundrels).  Retirement enabled him to return to creative writing after a career in business.  His debut novel received the 2009 Independent Publishers’ Silver Medal Award for popular fiction.  www.joncory.com

Judith Marshall (Husbands May Come and Go but Friends are Forever) is the owner of Kelso Books, a publishing house.  Husbands has been optioned for the screen and her second novel, Staying Afloat, will be available soon. www.judithmarshall.net

Teresa LeYung Ryan used her novel Love Made of Heart to shed light on secret agonies sufferered by mothers and daughters in domestic violence.  She is also a writing career coach and creator of Build Your Name, Beat the Game: Be Happily Published. http://writingcoachteresa.com

Moderator:  Geri Spieler, author of Taking Aim at the President http://www.gerispieler.com/

https://www.sanmateocountyfair.com/ 650 574-3247  for ticket info. Parking lot is on Saratoga, 1 block before the street dead-ends at Delaware (south side of fairgrounds).

Stage is located in the Fine Arts Dept, which is in the Fiesta Building on the San Mateo Event Center fairgrounds. https://www.sanmateocountyfair.com/fair-info/fairgrounds-map Vendors have the center block of space, we are in our own separate 2 large room type space and the stage is midpoint. (the technology dept is on other side of vendors).

2010 fine arts stage, Fiesta Bldg, San Mateo County Fair, CA

So, after I attend the Saturday June 19, 2010, 10:00am-noon  California Writers Club  meeting with fellow members for our last meeting before the summer http://www.cwc-peninsula.org ,  Margaret Davis and I will head out to the San Mateo County Fair, Fiesta Hall, Fine Arts stage to meet up with Judie, Jon, Geri and Bardi.  Hope to see you there!  2:00-3:00pm June 19, 2010

Sincerely,

Teresa LeYung Ryan
