Leukemia Lost (Author Interview)



Leukemia Lost looks like wonderful book.  What can you tell us about it? 

The book details how God brought my family and I through a very difficult cancer diagnosis.  I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia in May of 2013 and then underwent 9 rounds of chemotherapy followed by a stem cell transplant in January of 2014. 

How long did it take you to write Leukemia Lost?

It took me about 4 years.


What inspired you when writing Leukemia Lost?

When I was first diagnosed I remember one night in my hospital bed talking to God and I told Him that if one person’s life could be changed by this story than it would be worth it. 


What will readers get out of your book?

For them to gain some hope, inspiration and confidence in facing storms that come their way. 


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Leukemia Lost? 

Once I was diagnosed we used a website to journal and keep people updated on my condition.  A few years ago that website crashed and so we lost all of our journal entries.  That was the biggest challenge I faced. 


What do you like to do when not writing?

I love spending time with my family and I am very active in my church.    I also play tennis 2-3 times a week and follow a lot of sports.  


Where can readers find out more about your work? 

The book is posted on Amazon and for right now this is my only book.  I am not sure if I will write any more but I never say never.
