JoyWrites is the story of my life.

I am like that crane flying through the darkness, entering the magical wonder of letters and emerging 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 keep on telling them.
