This Spring, Myriam and I will celebrate 32 years of marriage. What a ride. Many of you have read my books and never known her work behind the scenes. 

Born and raised in a village outside of Angers, France, she worked for a year in Toronto before beginning her work of transcribing hours of interviews with George H.W. Bush. Eventually, she transcribed interviews and recollections from five presidents. Ford, Reagan, Bush, (both father and son) and finally Donald Trump.  None of the books would have been written without her help.

These pictures offer a record of her multiple meetings with presidents over the years.

  1. Kudos, Doug, for honoring and respecting Miriam for her work in supporting your ‘authoring’ . I remember you and your family quite vividly from your Indiana years and they are wonderful memories. So proud of your ‘life lived well’ and the Godly influence you have had on our world. Blessings 🙏🏻
