Off Belay: One Last Great Adventure

In 2015, I helped Jamie Shumway, a patient with ALS, write his memoir. It's now available at Amazon for purchase.

Off Belay--Coming Soon!

Watch for updates for Off Belay: One Last Great Adventure by Jamie Shumway. Over the last ten months of Jamie's life, I helped him craft his memoir. Jamie approached his ALS with courage and made writing this book his work during his illness. While I miss him dearly, I am so glad that his stories will soon be available to us all.

This week on the web

This has been a good week for sharing work on the web. 

First, the Daily Athenaeum, WVU's student newspaper, ran an article about the Narrative Medicine project I've been working on with Jamie Shumway. Jamie's memoir is about 250 pages long and we're working on a book proposal as well as going back through it and making edits and revisions. But, there's a full working draft, and that's exciting.

Also this week, I had a small piece with a picture I too of the stairwell in the building that houses American Ballet Theatre posted to the Picture Postcards project at In Quire.
