The e-book version of “Mended Wings” was published earlier this week on the Kindle platform. This represents over a year’s worth of writing, editing, and all of the creative energy that goes into a novel. The story is about a young woman named Flicker and her journey toward independence following a traumatic brain injury.
Several people helped me bring the book to life. Thanks to my editor, Stephanie Ernst, for her helpful suggestions and attention to detail. Thanks to Peggy Nehmen for the beautiful cover design. Thanks to Bill and Pat Imhoff, and Laurel Braverman, for their feedback on the first drafts. Thanks to my amazing partner in life, Rachel Dietz. Your support and inspiration are so important, and seeing the characters through your eyes enriches them. Finally, a special thank you goes to the hundreds of young people with traumatic brain injuries who I worked with in Wisconsin, Florida, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Missouri. I learned as much from you as you did from me.
