New Way To Order My Book

LIFE WITH A HOLE IN IT: That’s How The Light Gets In is a deeply personal story. It is my account of walking through the fire of cancer with my husband. He did not survive, but I lived to tell the tale, as they say.

He asked me to find my passion before he died, and writing is it. He would be so happy that I completed and published the book

While it is for sale on, I hardly get any proceeds from the sales and am lost among the millions. The book is one woman’s small effort to share a story of love, loss and healing. As such, I have decided to take a huge leap.

I have to pay $20.00 a month to maintain the website. My time spent writing is free. Rather than order the book from, please allow me to personally sign a copy for you and mail it directly to you. The cost for that is $20.00 I guess you see where I am going with this. Each sale gives me a bit more than would pay me, although nowhere near $20.

Being a self-published writer is great because this way I keep my independence, but it comes at a price.

Donations to the site are always needed, as well.

So if you would like to make sure that I write a second book (which I am working on now), do me a favor. Send an email and your snailmail address and I will autograph a copy just for you.

I can’t mail outside the U.S. however. If you live outside the U.S.,  it is available from It is also available an an ebook at

Thanks and love,
