About Lynette Benton

I'm a published writer and writing instructor. I guide others in writing about their lives or families. My work has appeared in numerous online and paper publications. My essay, “No More Secrets and Silence,” about how I wrote my memoir, My Mother’s Money, won first prize in the contest sponsored by National Association of Memoir Writers and She Writes Press. It was also anthologized in the collection, The Magic of Memoir: Inspiration for the Writing Journey. An excerpt from my memoir was a finalist in a 2014 memoir writing contest.
