Hi, my name is Trina O’Gorman. I am a writing professor. I’m also the divorced mother and only surviving parent of two, living her best life in New Jersey with her two amazing sons. I describe myself that way because I was divorced in March 2017 and my ex-husband died in June 2018. The quick succession of those events have left me in a precarious and somewhat unique place. Most of my writing centers around my reflections on how we can manage our stories, especially those relating to trauma and grief. All of my reflections come from my notebooks, which I have kept for many years.

I hope this blog help you to believe that you can overcome the challenges you’re facing. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media. You can find me at @trinaogorman and @thebookoftrina on Instagram.
