Last evening I had the pleasure of hearing Delia Owens speak at Book a Million in North Canton, Ohio. she was wonderful. She had written 3 nonfiction books and “Where the Crawdads Sing” was her first fiction book which sailed to the New York Times Best seller list. When asked which was easier to write I loved her answer. She explained that non fiction was more factual and like being in a cage. Fiction meant you were out of the cage and could take the book anywhere you wanted to go!
This book is now being made into a movie. She is also working on a new fiction book. She lived for 23 years in remote Africa and had many stories to tell including how she was charged by lions and elephants, but dreaded public speaking even moire! I love hearing the different authors speak.
I have over 40 chapters written for my non fiction book and am still writing away. I am being deterred by income tax which is not nearly as much fun!
Also - the international Myelodysplasia Foundation has written and asked me to write an article for them on my journey with MDS to be published in their next newsletter. I am busy and happy. My health took a little downturn when my blood counts went haywire but I started some shots to get the red cells going which are working very well. So life is good! More later - another book signing coming up soon!
