CommercialOn my birthday, the year I turned 51, I received the news that I had breast cancer. I was on the martial arts floor teaching a Korean style of fighting to about fifteen kids under the age of 12. There was no time to have a breakdown, unless I wanted to unleash complete chaos in the training hall, so I drew in strength and went back out to the floor.

How did the arts help with my treatment and recovery? I chose to view cancer as the enemy and treat it like I would any other. Counter attack and win. Offer no quarter. This disease is a killer and must be treated as such.

Now was not the time for self-pity or for asking, “Why me?” In so many cases there is no answer to that question. People from all walks of life, lifestyles and backgrounds develop breast cancer, with seemingly very little in common. If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, chances are you will never know the why.

One of the most frightening things for me was not knowing what to expect, which is one of the reasons I wrote my personal journey.  It isn’t a technical discussion. This isn’t the treatment for every form of cancer. But it will let you know that there is someone out here who understands what you’re facing, and who won her battle.

So if you are facing your opponent, or if you know someone who is, please get a copy of Cancer and the Warrior’s Way, either Kindle or paperback. It isn’t too long, but it is my wish to give you hope.

I have recently submitted Gambler’s Folly to a publisher, who requested a preliminary rewrite. I’m hoping to hear back again soon.

With winter really beginning to show, it’s easier to come into the office and sit down to write for a while. Gambler’s Folly is coming along nicely, as is the non-fiction story of my fight with breast cancer. My cat likes to come in and supervise from my husband’s chair. At least that’s what I think he’s trying to do, though he usually looks like he’s asleep. Just now he’s having a few problems with infected toes, so once he’s in the chair he’s down for the count.
We talk over story ideas, like how to get my hero out of the predicament he’s managed at this point. The cat listens intently, shrugs his shoulders and yawns. I don’t think he’s really into this story at all. Or maybe he’s hinting that I’m smart enough to figure it out on my own. I mean, really, if you’re asking the cat, there is an issue greater than the story.

I’m sure it will all work out in the end. Gambler’s Folly will be finished soon and into the real work–making my ramblings into something resembling a crafted tale. The cat’s toes will be better after he finishes his antibiotics and he’ll be able to get in and out of the chair himself.
And I feel certain that, after he feels better, he’ll really like Gambler’s Folly and be willing to put just a little more effort into it for me, give it just that little twist of magic it needs from my favorite feline. So I’ll talk to all of you later. Time to get the cat and get to work.
A piu tardi amici…..

I’ve received the proofs for Jareth:  First Lord, and if they turned out well, I can have them approved and have them sent back this weekend.  So I’m crossing my fingers and digging in today, searching for anything which didn’t turn out quite the way I’d like it.

As soon as the proofs are sent back and we’re ready for printing, Jareth will be available on Amazon.com.  I’ll keep you posted.
