I have a book published, titled, "THE DARK SIDE OF SURGERY". It details the fascinating and frightening experiences I had after major surgery. The world of hallucination is so real, it is sometimes impossible to know that it is only a world in your own mind.
Does this scare the family members who see you acting out? It certainly does! It is only after you have come out of that world, that you can all sit around and laugh!
I've been writing poetry and books for most of my life. I never really tried to get anything published until the past 17 years. I've taken a script writing course from Hollywood Scribt Writing School, where I wrote a script based on my novel, FAMILY TRUST. I currently have an agent who is trying to get my screen play accepted. I'm not holding my breath, though. It's a fascinating story of a young woman who gives birth to a son, in 1900. At that time, she is 20 years old, and married to a doctor who is 35. She "dies" after the birth, and is kept alive in suspended animation by her husband. He plans to keep her alive until medicine has advanced to the point where he can bring her back to life. He dies before that can happen.
In 1986, she is brought back to life by a heart transplant, performed by her great-grandson, who is the same age as her husband, and he looks just like him. Guess what happens?
Anyway, I have 10 grandchilren, and a son and a daughter. My daughter is the mother of 8. I do oil paintings, write poetry, and have had numerous operations during the last 14 years. Although I'm in pain most of the time, I am striving to get more writing done, and work on getting other projects published.
