Beyond Morning is a death-support and storytelling organization that exists to help individuals remember, record, share, and celebrate their life’s story before the moment of death arrives. Then, when death is imminent, we offer compassionate care and support through the death doula model.
We teach individuals about the value of memoir and life stories, as well as the necessity of memorializing them when they are no longer here to do so.
Our mission is simple: We are scribes, storytellers, and listening ears for both the living and the dying. For the dying, we are companions, friends, caregivers, and end of life support.
We accomplish our goals and mission in a number of ways:
Beyond Morning believes that people not only fear death but also fear being forgotten. We exist to alleviate death & legacy anxieties by celebrating your life’s story and supporting you at the end of it.
As long as I can remember I have been a writer. I began my professional career in 2005, working in the field of memoir, life review, death and grief. I have written over 30 books on behalf of others. Under my own name I wrote the book Write Until You Feel Better and the forthcoming Writing in Memoriam.
In 2019 I added the role of end-of-life doula to my work life after taking the INELDA training. That same year, I founded Beyond Morning, LLC, offering end-of-life doula and memoir writing services to the terminally ill and elderly.
