The most transformational change in our lives often comes from hardship and heartache. The worst things that happen to us can be our greatest teachers if we train ourselves to seek their lessons. Katrina’s talk is the story of a personal disaster that led to reinvention.
Katrina is a novelist, with four books for adults and one novel for tweens, her most recent titles being The Kindness of Strangers and The Blessings of the Animals. Katrina teaches creative writing workshops from the third grade to retirement communities, focusing on craft and motivation (and is especially good at jumpstarting stalled writers). She also offers manuscript consultations through Write Sisters Consulting and is a public speaker. She lives near Dayton, Ohio with her wonderful fella, and their sweet beagle and odd cat; has a thing for goats, gardening, and going barefoot; and is totally addicted to coffee, pedicures, and movies.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
