*Nominated, CityBest Best of 2015- 2018 – Local Author *
Those who have loved ones with dementia can read this, and say, ‘Yep, that’s me too.’ I want my readers to be moved. I want them to know what they are up against. And I want them to know how to love themselves in the most difficult of circumstances, when the person you are caring for no longer knows to love you back.

I found you and your writing. I enjoyed reading Unintended Consequences and My Mother Lied, although enjoy is not quite the right word — tough subjects. You get very human moments across quite effectively. I’m so sorry to read about your mother’s suffering. She is lucky to have you around. I’ll have to get to the rest of your posts.
You have a very impressive bio too. You’ll have to coach me on where to go to hear the best in oral performance groups. Do you ever go to the event at the Woodward Theatre? The Grenwich?
