Awareness and becoming aware are things that only come with the passage of time. As I am finishing writing my book, ON THE EDGE OF GRACE, I have become astulely aware of myself and how my life experience has made me who I am today. I would not trade a moment of the horror of watching the suffering that I have seen to be trite in the way that I think and perceive life and the living of it....

How could I take suffering lightly? How could I not be more caring, passionate and compassionate? I know this is a crime writing space and I will write my crime novels, but I must first birth this work-in-progress for the last 13 years. My only son was born with his bladder on the outside of his body and his penis was split down the middle. To date, at the age of 23, he has had 41 surgeries, 36 or which were by the time he was ten. I really need a publisher for this amazing story. It is my journey through the pain and loss that comes with watching the suffering of another. It has the elements of a great story including, but not limited to: socio-economic issues, moral issues, emotional divorce, physical divorce, becoming self-aware, the knowledge that only comes with years of being alone in every way, losing everything for the sake of one, looking for redemption where there is seemingly none......

.... finding redemption in the smallest of ways......

hope...

freedom......

Breathing!

Choosing to really live!

Wow, that's amazing about your son. Talk about art imitating life. Here's to hoping a publisher feels the same passion about your work as you do.
