Love Like Alzheimer’s
Love Like Alzheimer’s is a fictional story about a family going through a real-life disease affecting more than 5 million families in the USA and millions more around the world.
Alzheimer’s disease has no cure, but you can successfully battle it. It’s not about stopping the disease but learning to live better in spite of it. How much happier can your life be if you learn to appreciate today? It doesn’t take a terminal disease to love your family deeper. It takes a lot of small choices that culminate in a fuller love and life.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want to see that a cure is found. With a history of Alzheimer’s disease on both sides of my family tree, this devastating disease is sure to impact my family again. I support the Alzheimer’s Association and their great work in supporting care givers and seeking a cure for the disease.
The difference between a bad day and a good day (or a good day and a great day) is often a few small choices; choosing to wake up on time rather than sleep in; choosing to take a deep breath and be patient with other drivers rather than gripping your steering wheel tighter and swearing as you let road rage get the better of you; or choosing to forgive when you feel justified to hold a grudge.
I want to help with that.

I started writing short stories in elementary school. My first short story was about twin track athletes. In college, I wrote for the college newspaper and studied communications. My first job out of college was with a magazine as an assistant editor, where I started a comic strip called City Boy.
