Hello, friends!

As many of you know, I’ve been tap-tap-tapping on my keyboard and learning the craft of writing from the most brilliant of teachers. There are so many people to thank: Kate Hopper, Julie Burton, Nina Badzin, Herta Feely, and Linda Sivertsen. These wonderful writers have propelled me forward, and I’m delighted to say I’ve finished writing Happy to Be Here.

What is this book about?

Over thirty years, I’ve had four kidney transplants. Yes, that’s a lot. So despair has wrestled with hope. But when hope wins, life is the prize. When your mom and husband both jump at the chance to donate their kidneys, it’s hard not to feel explosive gratitude. And kindness and joy rise to the top.

Happy to Be Here extends far beyond my story because we all face uncertainty. Right? Shouldn’t we strive to live happy, anyway? I call it happitude.

What’s next?: I’m diving into the tricky (and some say nearly impossible) task of finding an agent and publisher with a broad reach. So, cross your fingers with me?

What I Believe: You can’t be a realist if you don’t believe in miracles. So I’m driven to share this wellness story made possible by people helping people. You know what else… we can all find joy in our lives, when we know where to look.

Send me an email if you’d like to get on a pre-order list for a copy!

Joyful regards,
