Smashwords Interview

Why did you write this book?
I am a disabled veteran. I found my disabled veteran brothers and sisters were hurting in ways that might be remedied. I found many not coping well with loss and their handicaps., because of attitude. Although the VA has many helpful programs, I did not find training to help the veteran’s attitude toward their coping with loss. Yet, the active military, all branches, now provides resilience training to all personnel. Yet the VA doesn’t. I wrote this book to add to the healing arts for caregivers in the VA;, but also for any veteran and for others coping with adversity.
Is there another story in your writing?
Yes, I have been teaching (and living) body/mind/spirit wellness for many years, incorporating insights from both science and the wisdom traditions. Namely, I have something to offer. Plus I have faced many setbacks and adversity in my life, learning resilience inch by inch. Now in my 80s I am also a storyteller and want to leave something for others who are hurting, not coping well.
