On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

My Jeffrey Archer summer

Last June, if you'd asked me about Jeffrey Archer, I would have said, "Who's that?"

And then I stumbled across his prison diaries and read through them, all three volumes. He was a disgraced Member of Parliament when he wrote those but was also a writer before and since. Because he was better known for his novels, I first read a collection of short stories, TO CUT A LONG STORY SHORT and then this one, NOT A PENNY MORE, NOT A PENNY LESS.

I've missed out! I have thoroughly enjoyed what I've read so far and wish I had discovered this author earlier. He's a prolific writer with many, many titles out there waiting for me - and you!

  1. YA!! It's great you made it out in your new pursuit of the outdoors. This IS a great time to camp. We were out last weekend and, too, loved the lack of people. It's cooling off here in Kansas, too, which is nice.
