Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.

Proverbs 16:24  (NIV)


As Christmas time approaches, this will be a commercial blog promoting both of my published books…The Light Through My Tunnel AND The Afflicted Healer.

The Light Through My Tunnel is my first published book and memoir. I describe being a wife, new mom, business professional and avid runner until my life was abruptly changed by a car accident and traumatic brain injury (TBI ).

It’s an inspiring and sometimes humorous account of my accident, my losses, challenges, victories, and ultimately, my need to reinvent myself.

See the book trailer below….





Speaking of reinvention, I had to leave a lucrative career as a pharmaceutical representative because I was no longer physically able to keep the fast pace of a drug rep. Instead, I began studying to ace the certification to become a personal trainer.

Don’t laugh! I realize I am not the image of a seasoned fitness professional. As a group fitness instructor, I am able to use my physical limitations to show others the proper way to hold their bodies while moving through an active range of motion. Of course I have to do it all while touching a chair for stability.


Thus I became the Afflicted Healer.

In my second published book, The Afflicted Healer, I gather 15 other guest authors to share their expertise and offer encouragement and advice for those trying to overcome obstacles, whether of mind, body or spirit, … and live their best possible life despite the challenges.

All of my Guest Authors are professionals and experts in their field. Read the advice of physicians, therapists, a pastor, a life coach and more.
