Dancing With Dementia - Release Week!

(It's a terrible time for a book release, but with dates for set up so far in advance, there's nothing to be done but keep moving forward. I hope everyone is staying safe and staying home as much as possible. Sending good and healing vibes to everyone!!)

Dancing With Dementia will release tomorrow!! This book has been a labour of love and I'm looking forward to sharing it with the world.

Dementia is difficult. Writing about it and reliving the most difficult days of our lives is even more difficult.

So why did I do that to myself? In hopes that our stories and the lessons we've learned would help others who are in the early steps of the dance with this disease.

The lovely Mason Canyon has organized a tour for the book throughout the week. I hope you'll visit a stop or two this week and point anyone who this book might help in the right direction.
