Book launch in March/April 2022
After my husband died from cancer, I wrote a book of essays and poetry that followed my journey of loss and grief then subsequent growth and acceptance over those first five years.
Reducing WE to me was not easy, and I’m shocked I did it. But I did with the help of faith, family, and friends.
Grieving, Growing, greenlighting
Writing has saved my spirit from a crushing blow. Faith, family, and friends are my three other constants—a trinity of lighted candles illuminating the way.
This is my journey through five years of turning WE into me—a collection of 55 essays and poems. I hope that sharing it will help someone along the way.
What’s different about this five-year mark? Now that my life has grown and expanded beyond the confines of that one horrific point in time, I’ve discovered that even though my grief is always there, my world has become bigger. My life has outpaced the grief so that it is just a part of my world now not the whole thing.
The release is scheduled for mid-February in time for what would have been our 35th Valentine’s.
