I am the mom of 12-year-old Hannah, the wife of steadfast, dear Marshall for 26 years, the only child of salt-of-the earth Jim and Betty; I am a children's book author, a freelance editor, a former legal editor and former prosecutor who was suddenly diagnosed with brain cancer on Sunday, January 17th, 2016. This website is an unfiltered account of my unexpected journey, the focal point of my support community, my way of reaching out for help, and a sacred space for me to try to process all I am going through. Be with me now. I need you.
