Even when her brain is infected with Alzheimer's plaque, Mom continues to nurture. This time, I'm grateful for a bossy Mom.

When you're stressed beyond overwhelm, just do the next thing. Each day has its own worries.

Author of "The Unraveling of Reverend G"
Introduction
I grew up on a farm in Oklahoma and yes, it's true that you can't take the country out of the girl. Currently, I live in the heartland of Kansas where I cheer for the Jayhawks.

As a writer, I'm interested in helping caregivers, particularly those who deal with Alzheimers and dementia. These diseases have affected our family in tragic ways and I write about them using the genre of fiction.

"The Unraveling of Reverend G" is the story of a woman minister who is diagnosed with Alzheimers. Rev G checks into Cove Creek Assisted Living where she meets Bert, Roxie and Gabriel - the cat with a special gift. The book is available on Amazon and from my publisher, Cross River Media.
