My name is Carrie Klewin Lawrence and I am the author of Origin Story. 

I was inspired to write this book because as a professional stage director, I have decades of experience helping people craft and tell their stories. I’ve seen the power of personal discovery storytelling, and have realized that controlling your(self) narrative can do amazing things for creating the future of your dreams.

My hope is that, in reading this book, you will gain the ability to see the past with a new perspective and discover possibilities for the future. 

In this book, I hope to instill in you the same sort of passion and excitement that I have for personal discovery storytelling. Ultimately, I want you to see this book as a tool to help you understand and celebrate what makes you unique. 

My perspective is unique because of my experience as a theatre artist, professor, military spouse, mother, and personal branding coach.

In this book, you’ll discover how to unlock your origin story by learning:

  • What is an Origin Story – Explore the basic elements of an Origin Story and how to use them to craft your own story.
  • How to Access and Craft Your Origin Story – We will take a look around your life to find the evidence of who you really are.
  • How to Utilize Your Origin Story – Whether preparing for an interview, a keynote, or designing your website, you’ll have greater control over your(self) narrative.

You will love this book if you are considering a career change, an entrepreneur, an artist, a student of any age, or if you are looking to fortify your personal brand with storytelling.

Origin Story is a nonfiction book that speaks to people who have not yet realized their true calling, or are unsure what path to take to achieve it. 

This is also a book for anyone considering creating and sharing their origin story – whether through personal discovery storytelling (like a Ted Talk), social media, and marketing.

Why is this book more expensive than normal?
At the presale/preorder stage you are helping with a small portion of the publishing costs. This ensures that the book will be published, and that you are investing in the author’s work.
By making a purchase through this storefront, you are supporting the military community. A percentage (10%) of the proceeds goes directly to supporting Spouse-ly and the many vendors you find here.
You can wait and eventually buy it on Amazon… but will it make you feel as good as making a purchase here?

Carrie Klewin Lawrence (she/her) is a quirky, collaborative stage director focused on social change. Carrie is also a professor, personal branding coach, and mother of three, who enjoys lindy hop, traveling, and photography. As the author of Origin Story, Carrie weaves personal discovery storytelling into a journey of self-discovery and forward action, encouraging readers to control their(self) narrative.  Once, when she was ten years old, Carrie wrote a play called “Little Red Riding Hood Says NO to Smoking”. Rediscovering that play, in a box kept in storage from her childhood, is the inciting incident for the creation of this book. 

My perspective is unique because of my experience as a theatre artist, professor, military spouse, mother, and personal branding coach.
