Coach Teresa here to say that my colleagues and I are writers who wear many hats too.

Elisa SouthardTravel Writer, Talking Tagline & Marketing Expert, author of Break Through the Noise: 9 Tools to Propel Your Marketing Message , wears a  new hat / new name– SASA–Smart And Savvy Adventurer, helping young women gain Big City Travel Skills.  Here’s the video I produced of SASA who says: “Learn public transportation systems when traveling.” Elisa aka Sasa is also involved in Public Relations Society of America, Bay Area Travel Writers, Left Coast Writers, and Women’s National Book Association.


Birgit Soyka–author of To Drink the Wild Air: One Women’s Quest to Touch the Horizon –wears these other hats:  female motorcycle adventurer; the loving human at the San Francisco Bird Hotel who says:”I understand Amazonian, Cockatilian and Toucanian and I am proficient in Budgie talk and African-grey slang. I love them all and I can relate to their moods, desires and needs.” Birgit just acquired Squawk & Howl (pet-sitting). Birgit is also involved in Women’s National Book Association.

Birgit Soyka uses her book to help people recognize their “Personal Transition Recipe” to create a joyful life and inner happiness.


What does Elisa Southard aka Sasa and Birgit Soyka have in common:  travel, motorcyles, birds, dogs, and Women’s National Book Association colleagues including Teresa LeYung-Ryan

    I write non-fiction. Sometimes that’s reports and articles for my church where I volunteered to be council president! Nearly a full time job for gal who is supposed to be retired. I’ve just published my second book: Living with the Stranger in Me: An Exploration of Aging. This first week I’ve sold 32 copies on my own. For sale also on

  • The hats I wear are: published travel writer, MFA in Writing student at University of San Francisco, reporter for Petaluma Patch, and blogger on the writing life–encouraging all creative souls to put the pens and pencils to paper. Oh, and I have a day job that has nothing to do with any of this but I hope someday will!
