About The Author

I have been a Physical Therapist for 33 years and love what I do. I have worked as an outpatient therapist throughout my career, and have always enjoyed working with the elderly population. I love the stories they share about their lives, as well as their outlooks and wisdom. I had a fleeting thought one day about how neat it would be to have their stories recorded, but initially ignored it.
I have always enjoyed creative writing, but never had any desire to be an author...until about 2 years ago. The thought about creating a book out of the stories shared became something I found myself thinking more and more about. So much so, that I finally made the decision to undertake the task of writing this book. One day I was sitting reading the Sunday paper and the man who would become my first interview was featured in an article. I found the article about his life fascinating, and said to myself should I begin the project, he would definitely be someone i would like to speak with.
The book is written with meaning, heart and sincerity. I have learned much in my years as a therapist and would like to share some of that with all of you. The book is meant to make you think and reflect, but also to provide, hopefully, a sense of peace and appreciation. I also hope you find many of my stories and interjections funny.
I believe in living a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise being essential, as well as the grounding that spirituality provides.
I welcome any questions and hope you find my book interesting enough to read. If so, I welcome any thoughts you may have.
