Welcome To My Childhood Memoir
Raised on Love
I’m Deb Trotter, and I’m a writer.
At this point in my life, I’m captivated with a genre known as memoir … so much so, that I’m writing two of them. One memoir is here, online, while the other one will be a book.
This is the homepage of my coming of age memoir, Raised on Love. It’s my opportunity to weave random memories into a tapestry of a life well lived.
My other memoir is a book I’m writing about my wild adventures in Ireland the summer of 1972. I blew out of my college graduation ceremony like a hurricane, hopped a plane with my best friend, and landed in the Emerald Isle during its rainiest season in thirty two years and at the height of its political violence.
