I am delighted that my Smashwords book, "Too Early for Flowers: The Story of a Polio Mother" has been optioned for screen rights by beautiful Ksenia Solo who will produce and star.
Even when writing the novella, I always could see it as a film. Ksenia is very moved by the story of these courageous mothers, especially through the microcosm of mine.
Since the age of 2 she spent years on daily exercizes to strengthen my polio leg, and reinforced a little boy's physical and social confidence while I spent years in braces. She taught me that everything is in reach, but I just have to reach higher than most boys.
She inspired me to explore all that life offered, and to travel around the world. Many years later I know I was able to give her the same kind of comfort and encouragement at the end of her life.
I hope readers will be inspired by this lovely, rare woman.

I couldn't stop reading..sharing the life of this noble, simple woman was almost like invading her privacy, but it was something I had to know. People must know of the heroism of these polio mothers, and the strengths they and their families learned to enable them to face their lives with pride and acceptance. And it's based on a true story. Amazing.
