In August, I will join a discussion about WORK and MONEY with my creative memoir writers. A subject long taboo, this conversation is brewing in Asheville. What has been your experience with work and money in Asheville? Can you compare your Asheville Experience with that of other cities? .
My name is Fiora: F i - o r - a ! I was born in Asheville, to a family from New York City, and raised in the Beaverdam Valley. I've lived in Sarasota, Florida; Riobamba, Ecuador; Amherst, Massachusetts; and Ralegh, North Carolina. I have two daughters, two granddaughters living nearby, along with a good-sized extended family ... all with stories to tell!
