In Impact, 21 women writers consider the effects of concussion on their personal and professional lives. The anthology bears witness to the painstaking work that goes into redefining identity and regaining creative practice after a traumatic event. By sharing their complex and sometimes incomplete healing journeys, these women convey the magnitude of a disability which is often doubted, overlooked, and trivialized, in part because of its invisibility. Impact offers compassion and empathy to all listeners and families healing from concussion and other types of trauma.
In Something as Big as a Mountain, the author describes her fledgling efforts at mountaineering while trying to understand her motivation for undertaking such a risky and physically demanding journey above the tree line. Having recently completed yet another arduous journey, one through a cancer diagnosis and treatment, her return to physical activity escalates from mere walking to training for a significant climb.
