I have loved to write all my life. When I was young, I didn't know what to write about. So I journaled... kept a diary if you will. Had I devoted myself to writing then, I would become more educated on the topic of being an author, I am sure. But I wouldn't have had the stories to tell.
As I have matured, met people, had encounters, failures and triumphs and learned about life, I have filed away hundreds of interesting characters, events, encounters and sights. Now my mind fills with stories to share and my challenge is to select the one that is right to tell right now.
I am getting an education about what it takes to take a concept in my mind and turn it into a story and then the many skills it takes to make that into a book for publication. I am not alone as I travel this road. As I learn to be an author, I continue to find talented collaborators who make the trip worthwhile. Thanks for visiting my site and I hope you will take this journey with me, reliving the plots, characters, twists, learning and adventures of a life layered, textured and vivid! I've just begun the chapter of my life titled, "Author."
A beautiful, sensitive and remarkable rendering of these two women’s journey. Ms. Weston remains a vivid, lovely writer! The emphasis, or depth of courage maintained through all the pain was amazing; as well as her mom’s fight to maintain her dignity, really screams. Marilyn Rubenstein, San Clemente, California.First and foremost, it was a pleasure to have the opportunity to read Valley of Shadows. I am currently experiencing the effects of what dementia does to a family, and it was a great feeling to know I’m not alone in my struggles, even though it does feel that way at times. Your words allowed me the freedom of my feelings without the guilt that usually goes along with them. My understanding of the process has been opened while allowing me the ability to know, while all cases are different, the devastation it can have on the loved ones is universal and that I am not being cruel or hateful in my feelings but I am being honest and doing my best with what we have been handed through this horrible disease. Thank you so much for telling your story and giving a voice and light to the sometimes dark and silent anguish we all experience as caregivers to our loved ones. Darcy Hall-Scott, San Juan Capistrano, California.See More
