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.

Guest Blog: Superstition Review

One of the places where I published a story, Superstition Review, asked me to write a guest blog entry. I wrote about the project I'm doing in the infusion center at WVU's Cancer Insitute. I hope you enjoy learning more about the stories I work on with patients with cancer.

Story, Health, and Healing at Wake Forest

This past weekend (Oct. 1) Dominique Bruno, Whit Arnold and I made a trip south to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to attend the "Story, Health, and Healing" event at Wake Forest University. A wonderful event with gracious hosts and thoughtful, well-executed sessions. 

 A big hello to our new friends in NC from your new friends in WV!
