Writer Statement

When my doctors told me I had breast cancer, they painted a picture of the worst future imaginable, something I didn't want. Like the characters I write, I had to find a way to change my own fate. And I did - the cancer is totally gone.

Each of us has the power within us to change our fate. The choice is in our own hands.
