Bio: I did not start writing stories until I became ill with Alzheimer’s disease. I am not sure what it was, a need to write my memoirs or just the way the disease struck me, but I was on fire writing stories and ended up writing about 70 short stories. The stories were mostly about childhood and then, as things changed, I was writing more adult until I wrote Turning Point – A Pathway out of the Fog of Alzheimer’s, my next to last book. I am grateful and feel blessed. I have had one doctor hold up my book stating that it is a “must read,” and another doctor verified I’ve beaten the disease!
Favorite thing about being a writer: I have expressed myself in many ways music, art, designing of costume jewelry and clothing and now writing. I fully enjoy the freedom of expression that writing offers.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: As an indie author trying to get the word out about your newest book can be a daunting task. Marketing is the make or break it for any indie author.
Favorite books: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Great post! What an incredible man/story. Very inspirational to do something so productive with such a dreadful disease. Happy to hear he ‘beat’ it! And I’m looking forward to browsing through more posts that I’ve missed in the last few months. Hope all has been well with you!
All is well with me – super busy but having fun!
How incredibly fascinating that a disease like Alzheimer’s can spur one to write. What a wonderful man! Thanks for sharing, Barbara.
