Today Dr. Angela and Dr. Stephanie talk to Jessica Hagemann, a professional ghostwriter, who helps people tell their stories. From a young man who recovered from a stroke and then wrote a book on communication, to a mom of seven who wasn’t sure her life was interesting enough to fill a book, Jessica helps each one of these people give voice to their individual journeys. Jessica reflects on her first experience writing the memoir of her grandfather Jack, who was a retired arson investigator in Kansas, and the surprising things that even Jessica’s mother didn’t know until she read the book. Dr. Angela and Dr. Stephanie reflect on the way that Cider Spoon Stories captures the universality of the human experience one story at a time.
