Freezing at the scene of a fatal multi-victim accident during her first year of residency nearly ends her medical career.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing in this paranormal, mystery genre allowed me to take the reader through real world self-doubt and fears which sometimes cripple our moving forward freely or lock us into the same struggles, same conversations voicing our fears and going around in circles until we find the courage to get off while enjoying a budding romance and mystery of unlocking hidden clues to free a family from its prison.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Aspiring writers should never lose sight of the freedom that writing gives. The writer can go anywhere, do anything and accomplish their hidden desires. This being said, they should never forget that if they like their writing and their writing gives them peace or joy, they should never stop writing no matter what other people think of it. Writing is a very personal experience, just like opinions are not fact, they are someone subjective beliefs, also a very personal thing and not everyone likes the same thing, nor can everyone be pleased by the same writing.
Living on the east coast, I love to travel to Maine. It is just far enough away to enjoy time with my wonderful family without the weight of work or competing schedules, but close enough that most of the short time to escape is not taken by travel. The beautiful scenery and abundance of woods and rocky beaches offers us peace and tranquility. I am the mother of three wonderful children and work in a law firm. Writing is something I never thought I could do. My vast work experience is more in accounting and legal work dealing with figures and asset allocation. Writing became a way to allow my mind to escape for short periods of time while my body stayed anchored to care for two dying parents and ensuring that I could still provide a warm and loving home to my children who agreed to be uprooted to help care for their grandparents.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Writing was born out of the necessity for some peace and relief during a draining and guilt ridden time in my life. My three wonderful children and husband underwent the difficult ordeal of uprooting our lives to care for my parents who were both dying of cancer.
Drastically altering our lives to ensure that the wonderful people who cared for me during childhood and were giving and loving grandparents to their only grandchildren had their family living with them and caring for their daily needs during the three years of their waning lives when cancer ensured they could no longer care for themselves was rewarding and heart wrenching. The guilt of drastically changing the lives of my children and impairing their freedom led to many a sleepless night and the birth of this novel.
Despite our trials, as we looked around, we realized for everything we felt, it is nothing compared to parents who are dealing with young children who fight the deadly disease and the siblings who struggle with guilt as they enjoy pleasures that their sibling is sometimes unable to participate in because of their long hospital stays.
The posting of this book for free came about in hopes of starting something good. We have posted the book for free and at the end set forth a note to the reader asking that if they enjoyed the book, they consider donating what they would have paid for the book to a local hospital helping children with cancer, either in their neighborhood or in the Boston area. We are looking into also posting it to Amazon for under $3.00 if we can set up the account to remit the checks directly to a Boston Hospital that works with Children suffering from cancer. If anyone knows about this and how to do it correctly, please email us at SanctuaryBook@outlook.com. We would like to get more exposure but won’t post until we know we can get the payments to the hospital directly.
