Finally, it’s here! After talking about my book for, well, for five years, it’s finally finished and available for you to read! It’s sort of like talking about going on a diet and losing weight. After a while, people say, enough. They expect you to stop talking about it and produce some results. Same deal with writing a book. Eventually, you’re expected to stop talking about it and produce a book. And now I can finally say, I did it. (Maybe some day I can say the same about the weight thing too. I am still working on that).

I’d be kidding myself, and you as well, if I said I didn’t care how many copies of my book sell. I do care. But on the other hand, my memoir is a story that needed telling, so regardless of what happens sales-wise, it’s very satisfying to share my “unsanitized” story about cancer as I know it.
Memoir is probably my favorite genre, or one of them anyway. I love reading stories about real people and real struggles.
One of my favorite memoirs is The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls. It’s wonderfully bizarre. Another favorite is The Mercy Papers: A Memoir of Three Weeks, by Robin Romm. This one’s about a daughter whose mother dies from metastatic breast cancer. Very raw. Which is exactly why I love it. And a third favorite of mine is A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas. This one’s about grief and dogs. So poignant, one to tug at your heartstrings for sure. I highly recommend all three.
Back to mine…
You can purchase Cancer Was Not a Gift & It Didn’t Make Me a Better Person: A memoir about cancer as I know it, here on my site in pdf format. You can also purchase a print copy on Amazon and it is now available on Amazon for Kindle as well.
For now I want to say…
