I was a reading specialist and an alternative high school English teacher for thirty years. My husband has a muscle disease now with lung involvement and I take care of him and assist him in his structural engineering business. Our daughter had an emergency bilateral lung transplant two years ago and throughout, I wrote about her survival and recovery and about what was taking place around me and within me. Thus, I wrote A Chance Meeting With Life, my only publication. I began a business, Stacks of Books, Inc., in order to publish myself as we need to maintain the rights to our story. I continue to write and intend to publish again.
