“I was inspired to write my memoir to celebrate the lives of the loved ones I have lost – all seven,” said Marie Lenay Rogus, Author of “Grief Comfort Guide: A Personal Journal from Loss to Light.” Ms. Rogus, who is also the Publisher of Twilight Garden Publishing, hopes that by putting down in words her experiences with the losses she has endured, she will be able to help others come to terms with their grief.
The author is also working on the audio version of her book and will be recording the book for Audible in early November. A trained Hypnotist, Ms. Rogus will soon offer the hypnosis download for free on her website GriefComfortGuide.com. “My future goal is to have a daily blog to interact with others who have experienced the loss of a loved one,” she said. “I would also like to do speaking engagements.”
In addition to her writing and publishing, Ms. Rogus is Co-Owner of Rogus Innovations, a company that makes devices for the two-radio market and also works as a Foreign Patent Assistant Paralegal at a law firm. She is also a Childbirth Educator and creator of the “Ease into Birth” method of childbirth. Previously, Ms. Rogus worked for many years in the entertainment business, where she came to know such well-known personalities as Robert DeNiro, Sylvester Stallone, Cary Grant and Mae West. She shares stories about her interactions with these Hollywood legends in her memoir.
Ms. Rogus is learning all she can about how best to market her book and how to use social media to expand her reach when it comes to not only her book but Rogus Innovations’ product line as well. “Now I also need to learn how to make and edit films for YouTube,” she added.
