When did you first start writing?
I first started to write after I sustained a hemorrhagic stroke. I actually didn't start working on my essay in earnest until 9 years into my recovery. This essay talks about all the aspects that I went through - from not talking (I was silent for the first 5 months) to all the surgeries that I went through and all the different therapies I got involved in. These therapies included physical, occupational, and speech. I have gone to a psychologist and a psychiatrist for the past 3 and a half years.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I felt that my words might affect any person who has had similar experiences.

June 3, 1991 is a date that I will never forget. This was the day my father died from a massive heart attack. His passing means something different then my siblings because I was there in our house and my 2 sisters and my brother were not. My mother came home from work after I had called her and she dealt with the ambulance and the police before my father.was taken away.
