Linda was fascinating to talk to and her Audio Autobiography covered lots of ground. As someone who had already begun writing her autobiography, she had plenty of stories to share.
The one I’ve chosen to share with you here is about her time living with friends and attending college in Manchester in the 1960s. Something I did myself, 30 years later.
What Linda said about her Audio Autobiography experience:
‘Since becoming a grandmother, very unexpectedly at the age of seventy, I have wanted to record my life story for my grandson.
When I was introduced to Gillian Torres while taking part in a “Stories of our Lives” session I felt an immediate rapport with her.
To record my audio autobiography Gillian expertly guided me through a series of sequential questions which helped me to put my thoughts in order to tell my tales.
I felt very relaxed talking to her, she made it feel easy. It was like talking to a friend.
I am delighted with the recordings, despite not liking to listen to my own voice!
My daughter thought it was “Brilliant”. A friend from the Stories of our Lives group enjoyed
listening to my stories rather than reading them. So thank you Gillian.’
