Reinventing My Life
Written as my memoir, it is a story of love, lies and loss…and final healing. It is meant to share how I was able to survive emotional and financial tragedies by reinventing my life.
Palm Desert, California
After many years of tragedy, I was able to heal by entering college at the age of fifty-nine. It opened a door to give me an opportunity to overcome deep depression and to give me the chance to rebuild my self-esteem and my creativity that both were nearly destroyed.

I now continue going to school, even after receiving my Masters degree in Creative Non Fiction at UCLA. I have now published my first book, my memoir, titled “Reinventing My Life” by Dorothy Kissell. I hope to share my story with those who can empathize and perhaps find inspiration to rebuild from the onslaught of tragic events.
