Show Notes

Like many Peace Corps volunteers,  young Evelyn LaTorre fell in love with a handsome man native to the country where she served. The two eventually married.  Unlike many of her fellow Peace Corp peers, Evelyn remains happily married to the same man 55 years later.

Here, Evelyn shares her story of determination to overcome a surprise pregnancy before marriage, her parents disapproval, the cross-cultural differences between Evelyn and her husband, and and the grit it's now taking to publish two memoirs, back-to-back.

You'll learn:

  • The ingredients that have led to a successful partnership between Evelyn and her husband.
  • How Christmas newsletters saved over the years can help form a book.
  •  That it's never too late to publish your first book.
