Even during this difficult time with the pandemic, I find joy and peace in reflecting upon the seven (7) year journey I conscientiously took, to write and publish a book, hoping it would soothe my soul.
Three years ago, I received at my home, the first shipment, 300, of the nonfiction book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s. It was a surreal feeling, holding a book in my hand.
This journey helped me fight through the complicated grief that I’d been stuck in. As I wrote my story, and crafted the words on paper, it validated what John and I had lived through.
In April 2017, having healed, I could now talk about my three sisters-in-law, Lora, Marcia and Cindy who were struck down early in their lives by the insidious Huntington’s Disease, without crying.
For the next several days, John and I had fun addressing approximately 30 books to mail to those who ordered a copy on my author website. I also had two local book signing events to organize; April 29 and May 7, 2017. https://www.theresecrutchermarin.com
It was a very exciting time for me as my dream came to fruition. To read Watching Their Dance book reviews, click here: https://theresecrutchermarin.com/goodreads-review/
The following is my personal tag line that I write in every book I sell.
We Can Never Lose Hope……….
