I fell in love with books as soon as I was able to read. I dreamed of being an author
myself. But chose to make a living instead.
Then I experienced a life-changing (and darn near life-ending) event. I was diagnosed
with Stage IV cancer, and given about six months to live. To help cope, I started
to write about my thoughts and feelings – at the same time I was experiencing them.
This stream-of-conscious proved to be very therapeutic (and later became my book,
Mortal Musings: Waiting for Dawn). It also caused me to re-order my life priorities.
One of those is to return to what I really love -- writing.
