Swan (or ugly duckling) Song

Bilateral Arthritis and Dupuytren’s Contractures dealt a double blow.

Genetics has reared its ugly head and dealt this author a blow that will end this blog—at least temporarily. Bone-on-bone arthritis in my hands and my family’s Dupuytren’s Contractures, a condition that draws the fingers into the palms, will curtail my ability to type and, thus, my writing. Once I determine if the shots are effective against the pain and halt or slow the two diseases’ progressions, I’ll reevaluate. Maybe, I’ll even try out the speech-to-text software, even though I’ve heard it’s not all that accurate.

Here’s a cautionary tale, sweeties: All things in moderation. Never type twelve hours a day for a year and a half during a pandemic—or else.

A Reason To Bury: Blood, Guts, and Secrets, Book 2 of the Firestorm series, is scheduled for release on June 30, 2021. Drop by Amazon and pick up your copy then. While you wait, buy Book 1, A Reason To Forget: Training Games, and get to know Jazz, Blossom, and Davy. Book 3 will be delayed, but I’m determined to finish the trilogy before my hands curl up completely! The upside? I’m getting used to needles.

It’s been a blast, people! I’ve enjoyed every minute. Follow your dreams while you can!
