I am a Florida-based author, physician and lottery winner. My interests are eclectic in nature...from the seemingly mundane to the strange and interesting.
I ‘m currently in the process of publishing my lottery experience memoir, Pressing My Luck. When not editing or fulfilling my duties as an emergency pediatric care physician, you’ll find me sharing my books progress as well as my inspirations and thoughts on my blog http://www.shirleypress.com/blog.
In 2001, Dr. Shirley Press won 56 million dollars (17.5 million take home) in the Florida Lottery. In her memoir, Pressing My Luck, Dr. Press takes readers on a tour of her life and looks back on how the lottery windfall affected it. With insight and candor, Dr. Press recounts her decisions, daily struggles as well as post-lottery observations on family, friends and life in general.
