I'm a mystery author my first book, The With Hazel Manor. I've also written a short memoir about living with a hidden disability; I'm Having Brain Surgery on Tuesday. This memoir recounts how the side-effects of hydrocephalus, and having a hidden disability, affects my life, relationships, and well-being.

Just a Little Minor Brain Surgery

Looking forward to insertion of this, an intracranial monitor into my brain this coming Monday. 😳

Especially looking forward to brain surgery under local anesthesic.😳

I’ll be in the ICU for up to three days. Do you think they’d frown on my doing yoga during that time? πŸ€”
