Betsy Hayhow Hemming is a former newspaper reporter who spent years in the auto industry before starting her own business in leadership development. Writing has been a constant throughout her career. She writes columns about the Au Sable River in Michigan and self-published her first book last year, “William Bell: A Novel.” She is working on a second William Bell novel and loves to write ghost stories and creative non-fiction.

About the book:

Three people face life’s powerful issue of which path to take. Enter William Bell, a quirky fellow who calls himself a life facilitator but hates the term. Whether they want assistance or not, William uses unique approaches to help them. Debra is a newly-widowed woman who is struggling with the grieving process. She dreams of houses and happens upon William in an unusual way. William helps Debra through some truly difficult times. Sam, a just-fired advertising director, receives career advice from William. Did he want career advice? No. But that didn’t stop William from providing memorable counsel. Emma – an intense and extremely private person – has the gumption to serve as William’s attorney. Roles shift as William works mightily to help her achieve her secret dreams. “The world could do well with a few Williams around…”
