Thank you very sincerely for your interest! ;)
The New Girls...my first work...
My rare genetic mutation, BRCA2, is almost certainly a death sentence. I will get Cancer in my lifetime. There is a way to beat the odds; Prophylactic Double Mastectomy. Sacrifice my breasts, yes, remove my breasts, and replace them with 'The New Girls'. This surgery is not for the faint of heart. Removing healthy organs is unnatural, almost unthinkable, and surgery is risky. But Breast Cancer is a horrible disease and has taken so many people I loved.
When I faced this choice, there was no information. I was confused, scared, uncertain. Was this too drastic or was I saving my life? I made my decision, underwent the surgery. During the recovery, I wrote this book so that others may have perspectives and information that I did not. I now understand how little awareness there is of this mutation, known as BRCA. There is even less understanding of the solution I chose.
'The New Girls' is the story of how I faced this frightening reality; hysterectomy, double mastectomy, the acceptance of the new me. It has been a daunting ride, an emotional one. If you or someone you know is facing such a decision, hopefully, 'The New Girls' will give comfort, knowing that they are not alone. I felt alone.
On the first day of this year I pulled an illegal U-turn and went back to visit him, in the nursing home. Because somehow I knew I needed to, I knew I was running out of time. I hope I turned around all the other times I needed to, sat there when I needed to. Talked to him every time I needed to, every time he needed me to.
My father was dying. I knew this. I abandoned my life, moved here, to be with him, to assist in his care. I’ve been with him for two solid years and they think I have at least that much more time as the disease progresses, stealing his abilities, his independence.
Did he know how much I loved him? That I would have done anything in my power to make his life better? I hope so, I better have. There is no second chance, no do-over.
My grandfather walked down the street to buy milk and never came back, was struck, and died instantly. I did not feel that I had said all that I wanted to, to him. It was a hard lesson. It has taken my lifetime to learn it well. This book contains a few of those hard lessons, I hope they help you 'Say What Needs To Be Said'.
Air Force Veteran Scott Aubin’s incredible story was published on July 4th, 2019. He was overwhelmed by PTSD but prevailed after a suicide attempt taught him lessons that he is now teaching nationwide as a Suicide Prevention and Motivational Speaker. So proud to be his Biographer!
Does Death Follow me?
It’s a damn good thing I joined the Air Force and not the Navy. In the Navy they teach you proper knots. The knot I tied around my neck didn’t hold when I stepped off the ladder. Suicide? Knot Today. For the first time in years, as I lay on the cold concrete of that garage, I was glad to be alive.
For decades I had never said a word. 'I’m good', I told everyone, but I was not.
I simply had to start using my voice, telling my story, for the good of others. It’s a story of the prevailing human spirit, and I hope it will help others speak out. Because needing help is not a weakness, it makes you human. Everybody has a story.
My co-author Scott W.F. Aubin has seen things that most of us never will. His story is compelling, his spirit unconquerable. PTSD made life impossible, he has prevailed. Now a suicide prevention speaker nationwide, he serves our country by sharing his story, traveling with his Service Dog, Dash. He tried to take his life, those who know him are grateful that it was 'Knot Today'.
"A must read...."
All Five Star Reviews
Shocking the Nation, Seamstress and Artist Denise Prell found herself “Imprisoned by Love” in her Story of a short Fairy Tale Love affair with a Maximum Security Prison inmate that landed her behind bars herself. As a writer and biographer I loved her Story. You can read her entire truth and decide for yourself if she was punished unjustly for her ‘crimes of passion’!
