Well, I already have a book coming out...my first... and I'm participating in a random Contest for Authors. First they want a mini-Bio to meet & greet...then answer some questions posed. And who knows? I might even get an Agent. (!)
Mini-Bio: I'm a Stanford-trained doctor in anesthesiology and critical care. That's the good news. The bad news is that it all came crashing to a stop, both literally and figuratively, when some lady hit me and my daughter in Malibu, California. Thank God my daughter was and is fine ;-). But I was stumped. The doctors were stumped. I couldn't live without an IV. I died and went to the door of Heaven. I came back. I saw life and I saw death; now I was life and I was death. Drip, Drop and Hum, Drum of the IV that was going into me instead of into my Patients. So, I wrote a book. And I persevered. WaLa!
Six years later, I'm now a Cenegenics Institute Physician and my office is in Beverly Hills. (Shhh~ Grand Opening Soon!) My goal? To stay well, and to use my medical knowledge to practice Excellence in Age Management and Preventive Medicine. My Newest Book? Girl Power in Age Management Medicine: A Walk through Time. In fact, I'm starting it tonight!
-Where do you write? In bed, my sanctuary of sorts. Mmmm. Cozy.
-Quick. Go to your writing space, sit down and look to your left. What is the first thing you see? Tonight, it is a cup of coffee. Low-fat milk instead of cream, and no sugar ;-). Low-Glycemic Index Diet, of course!
-Favorite time to write? After the sun goes down, when the crickets come out.
-Drink of choice while writing? Mmmm. Roasted coffee smells so good.
-When writing , do you listen to music or do you need complete silence? Silence is golden. Ah, but there's the hum of the air conditioner for background noise. It's still cozy.
-What was your inspiration for your latest manuscript and where did you find it? My inspiration for the current book comes straight out of the desire to pursue Excellence in Medicine. I sought training in the specialized field of Age Management, not expecting to get what I got: a Stanford-quality education at Cenegenics! So WaLa! It's off to work I go! Fit to explode with happiness, I can't wait to stay well and get fit and I just have this exuberance! This journey is a walk indeed, and much like the times I wanted to share when I was a trauma patient, I'm just grateful to be sharing the Good Times this time! Onward & Forward for Women's Health I go!
-What's your most valuable writing tip? Ahhhh. That's Easy, As with all things in life that are a challenge, just do this: Believe and Persevere. If you really Believe, then Act. And Hey, I believe in You!
So, to answer the Question: Just Write!
