My two books have filled voids in their fields, providing information where it was lacking. Surviving Triple-Negative Breast Cancer is the go-to book for women recently diagnosed with TNBC, their families, and their friends. It regularly hits best seller lists for breast cancer books and is available in hardcover and paperback. The Magazine from Cover to Cover is used in major universities throughout the world and is considered the premier textbook in magazine journalism. It has lived through three editions. And I have just finished a narrative non-fiction account of the forest fire at our mountain cabin in 2013, reporting on the after-effects of a natural disaster on the land, its animals, and its people. Through scientific research embedded in the story, I demonstrate how the fire was linked to climate change—and the ways it, in turn, caused more change. At this point its title is Burn Scars: After The East Peak Fire.
