More on the Importance of Research...

For my fourth novella, Beyond the Moon and the Heartache Too, I intended to write about aging. Friends had been telling me horror stories about aging parents, self-entitled siblings, and difficulties accessing services. It all sounded unbelievable. Until... I began my research. I was quickly inundated with people revealing their family's "dirty little secrets." Shame and blame were often hard to separate. Frightening, yes, but painfully true. This truth became a well researched fictional tale of the perils of growing older and facing unspeakable realities.

Remember to always look for the joy in this life!

The Diva,
