I am a survivor of child abuse and, hopefully, cancer. I like people but also like to be alone. I have been working on a book about the effects of child abuse and hope to have the first draft done by January. In the meantime, I sometimes feel an irresistable urge to write either a short story or an article. I appreciate feedback from anyone who reads what I have written. Update: cancer delays things but it looks as though my book will be in print before this year ends.
