Dabbled in family history when I first retired from full-time employment. Now regularly put in 60-hour weeks. Is that obsession?

Delighted to have a new focus for my writing.

Saber, I have edited your question to improve its clarity and readability. I hope that I have not lost your meaning. If I have, you can "roll-back" the edit to your original.

comment Can I use a different ISBN when publishing a co-authored book in two different countries?
Which (or how many) ISBN the book has may be the least of your worries. That is just one of the issues of who owns what in your collaboration and whether you have breached a pre-existing agreement with your (her?) publisher by printing in another country. Seek expert LEGAL advice.

comment How about a story as a series of anecdotes?
You wrote "I have a concept for a story I'd like to do ... But this sounds like a horrible story to me." Unless you are under a contractual obligation or some other external compulsion, why would you want to write a horrible story?
