Interesting Known Facts about The Author
1. In 1995, the Lord came to me in a dream and told me that I would become a writer/author. I was excited about the prospect and ready to get started immediately. However, I was unable to start because I had no idea what I was to write about or how to begin or the dynamics involved in becoming a writer/author. Although I prayed regularly for the answers, He did not speak another word about it for 17 years. Just recently, I understood why, when I heard Christine Cain speak a message regarding the 'process' of development that must take place between the time you are appointed and the time you are anointed. She talked about how the anointing required a time of crushing and out of the pain of crushing we become who we are. It was that process that took 17 years. When the anointing came, the veil that covered the instructions of the dynamics was lifted and I was able to see clearly to begin my journey as a writer/author.
2. Several months after I graduated from Faulkner Christian University with my bachelor's degree in Business Administration, (2001) I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in the corner of my left eye called malt lymphoma. It was not very much known about this particular form of cancer at the time as only 19 people in the country were known to have it at that time. There were no medical books with the information for treatment. My radiologist had only treated one case previous to mine. Boston Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat (BEENT) Hospital had treated the most cases and so a collaboration had to take place between Wilford Hall Medical Center. (where I was to be treated and BEENT before the treatment could begin). That took several months. There was a surgical procedure to cut out as much of the tumor as possible. I was not able to be put to sleep during the surgery as my assistance was needed to move my eyeball in the different directions required to get as much of the tumor out as possible. Afterward, radiation treatment was given everyday for 4 months (Monday through Friday) to dissolve the portion of the tumor that was left and unable to be removed surgically. BTW, I worked full time and left work everyday at 1:30 to go for my radiation treatment and returned to work after the treatment was administered. I almost lost my job, as both cancer and radiation treatment diminishes your ability to remember things, but God kept me.
3. After graduating from Webster University with my Master's degree in Management, Human Resource Development and Leadership, I treated myself to one of the greatest experiences of my life a trip to Egypt and Israel. Unknown to me, the photograph that I took after climbing to the top of Mount Sinai in Egypt, would become my book cover for the award winning book: Spirit to spirit that would be written ten years later.
4. Because I like reading and giving books as gifts, the bookmarks I make go hand in hand with that. They are very pretty additions to books and have been recognized and admired by most of my clientele, friends, family and fans. For this reason I am dedicated to the delicate and meticulous process of creating my own line of beaded bookmarks for some time to come.
