Events Page

Welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

I look forward to getting to know you, hearing your dreams and goals, and sharing my experience, strength, and hope with you so that you can live the life you were intended to.

Now that things are beginning to open back up I felt it appropriate to offer a brief summary of my experience around the pandemic. It is here, because it is related to “carrying the message”  for me, primarily through recovery meetings online, and in-person along with other book talks. Teaser: I have several others in the works.

Occasionally I will post updates for recovery speaking engagements here, but only if the meetings are open to anyone.

Book Talks

Marlene Cullen hosts the Writers Forum Zoom Series where writers share their writing journeys and offer tips about the craft and business of writing. Sometimes we’ll enjoy relaxation exercises and then write together. There will be time for questions and answers and chatting about writing.


Come back soon for information on my next event.
