"...everything in life is writable...if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt."..... Sylvia Plath

Author: Nancy Hinchliff

*Guest posts on topics of interest to writers and poets are welcome.  Contact me, if you're interested. Please feel free to post comments and feedback on the excerpts from my memoir-in-progress.   

I own and operate a bed and breakfast in Louisville, Kentucky where I also blog and write on line at Examiner.com, Eye on Life Magazine, Pink magazine and Hubpages. You can find me blogging at Business and Creative Women's Forum, InnNotes, Innbusiness  and Louisville Bed and Breakfast Association 

In 2008, I co-authored Room at the Table, for The Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky for which I won their president's award for outstanding work. The coffee-table cookbook has recipes from Kentucky Inns all throughout the state and beautiful photographs of scenic Kentucky taken by award winning photographer, Robin Goetz.

I am currently working on a memoir titled Operatic Divas and Naked Irishmen: An Innkeeper's Tale, a humorous and poignant account of how an admittedly asocial retired school teacher reinvents herself as an Innkeeper. This i
ntimate tale recounts 16 challenging years of self-discovery.


  1. Nancy, the memoir sounds fascinating. I always imagined an innkeeper's life would be very rich and entertaining.

  2. Thanks so much for the comment. yes, rich, entertaining, and a lot of other things. It'll be a while before I try to get it published. I've been working on agent query letters and proposals lately. But will start sending out letters soon.
