THE STORY:

After more than three decades of watching my father in his wheelchair, five years after his death, I suddenly had to face the very real possibility of being in one myself. For the past 10 years, I have been writing, Diving into Glass, a memoir that tells the story of how my life suddenly and unexpectedly followed in the steps of my father who was struck by polio at 19 and remained 95% paralyzed for the rest of his life.

The book is finally complete and at the end of July, I have a window of opportunity to work with a preeminent editor. He has helped award-winning authors edit their books, and I’m hoping he will help me with mine. The story of my father who, despite his severe paralysis, married twice, had four children, built a highly successful life and career, is truly inspiring.

But, most importantly, the book is about what happens when fate taps you on the shoulder and life as you previously knew it, lays in shards at your feet. I hope my father's story, and mine, will shine a light on disability and courage (in all its shapes and forms) and help others navigate the bridge they don’t believe they will ever be able to cross. I'm grateful for your help and support.
