It began in 1975 when I married a smart, ethical, handsome man with 3 children. Although I am a psychiatric social worker, it took several years before I realized he had been diagnosed with severe narcissistic personality disorder...a Donald Trump!
My writing initially was for the purpose of catharsis. It helped a bit.
Once it became clear that this was a NON marriage, I sought ways to find areas in my life which offered normalcy. I founded a licensed adoption agency and did international adoptions from third world countries. (almost 2000); it grew, offered gratification and stabilized me a great deal.
The writing was cathartic, but very painful. For relief, I would turn to writing about my childhood growing up in Hell's Kitchen, NY, dating a member of the Westies, the culture there, the assets like the theater district, old Madison Garden, the dock workers,and being one of 2 daughters of a marvelous woman who became the program director of a local settlement house and a man who became known as "SIr fix it". This was during WW II and had it's own intrigue. I enjoyed that too and lead me to write memoirs of my 12 years in a Catholic Religious community. Very funny stories from that time also gave me relief from the NON marriage horrors.
The result is that I have 3 separate sets of memoirs, all fascinating, but somewhat disconnected. In discussing the with a local writer's group, the suggestion repeatedly came up that I should consider a TV movie, partly as a way of unifying them different parts and partly because of the timeliness of the "Trump appeal".
Not sure how to select the best genre, modality.
