A Cup of Jo Writing under the pseudonym, Jo Juanita Manlove, I use fiction to explore my past, those memories that stand out, present, to reflect on yesterday and its impact on today, and beyond, my hopes and dreams, the life I want to create. This collection of short stories provides insight into my journey and hopefully will inspire you to write about yours. Writing your memoirs is great way to gain clarity and self-awareness. Writers reflect, writers reveal, writers inspire. If you have the creative bug, and you have a story to tell, take a chance....write your life.
