Shameless Plug! I've been published again!

It's been a rough year and I'm still under the weather, so today's post will be a short shameless plug. I've been published again! 

Living with traumatic brain injury means living with loss. One of the losses I've learned to live with is that my career as a professional writer ended just as it was getting started. (I've published two books, Generation Ex and But I Don't Want To Go To Bed). So imagine my joy when a few days ago, I 
received this nice little package in the mail. 

Almost a year ago, a writer friend sent me an email alerting me to the fact that a new Chicken Soup for the Soul book was in the works. Because the theme was traumatic brain injury, and I was a writer before I sustained my TBI, she thought I might try to come up with a submission. 

My brain doesn't work on command the way it used it, but I did manage to come up with a story just in the nick of time. I was optimistic, but have worked in publishing (on both sides of the book), so I knew better to get my hopes up.

At the beginning of the year, I learned that my story was still in the running. It wasn't until just a few weeks ago that I learned that my book did in fact make the final cut!

 The big surprise was learning that my submission is the first story in the book!

Here's a sneak peek!

My story.

A little shout out to the blog.

If you are interested in learning more about what it's like to recover from and live with a traumatic brain injury, the book is available for sale on Amazon now. The book official releases on June 24.
