  1. I’ve just read The Shift. It was wonderful work, very moving for me. You reminded me of things I’ve witnessed (when my mother was in the hospital so many times), with an eye for tying the emotional details with the physical ones. How wonderful to have your work recognized by NPR!

    I’ve also read your post about the work of revising — best of luck with all the concentration one needs for that. 🙂

    • Thank you so much for reading my work. I jumped over to your blog and enjoyed your work as well. The Shift was inspired by a trip to visit a friend in the hospital. I’ve toyed with the idea of expanding it, but haven’t quite gotten around to that yet.

      Best of luck with your writing, and thanks for stopping by.
