JoyWrites is the story of my life.

I am like a crane flying through the darkness, entering the magical wonder of letters and into a glorious blue sky, bright with clouds.   

For me, it's always been about the stories. As a very young child I liked to watch people in airports and restaurants and conjure their stories.

I wrote through every class and life event, and then taught others to write. Illness started a new chapter for me, one I turned into a book to help other patients through the choppy waters of long-term illness.

I've learned to search for the positive path forward and find the good I can do. My life is still about the stories, and I will continue telling them.
