Contest Winner’s Book Now Available

In Fall 2012 Madison Magazine and I teamed up to offer a reader the chance to see his or her life story become a book. Entrants submitted a 500-word autobiographical sketch, and a panel of judges chose winners Ron Hoppmann, first place; Barb Kehrein, second place, and April Hoffman, third place.

In May 2013, I delivered Ron’s completed book to him. We celebrated its launch with his writing group (see photo below).

The book is for sale on To purchase a copy, click here.
