Since 1999, Writing Your Life has helped people take the memories that live in their hearts and minds and put them into words on a page.

Bio of owner and founder of Patricia Charpentier:

Patricia Charpentier, author of the multi-award-winning book, Eating an Elephant: Write Your Life One Bite at a Time, teaches, writes, edits, ghostwrites, and publishes personal and family history and life-based stories. To date, Patricia has coauthored, edited, and published more than seventy personal and family histories. Her belief about capturing life stories is: The only way to do this wrong is to not do it at all.

Patricia founded the Life Writers membership in 2020. Life Writers combines three components, which she believes are necessary for success—community, instruction, and accountability—and brings people together online from across the US, Canada, Mexico, and Jamaica. Learn more at

To encourage writing in community, Patricia offers free, virtual First Tuesday Write and Read sessions every month where people from across the globe come together to write in response to prompts and share their writing in small groups.
