New book coming soon! And why I decided to write it...

I started to write about my stroke experience while I was still in rehab back in 2014.  I had the use of only one hand at the time, but I thought it would be great to chronicle my recovery. The idea then turned into a full-fledged book about my stroke and the recovery of my body and singing voice. "Singing In My Own Key: A Vocalist's Triumph Over Stroke" is scheduled to be published this spring. I am excited! This book is a survivor's account of what it feels like to have a stroke, how I recovered and the challenges and small victories I faced along the way. I hope to give readers an insight into understanding this complicated brain injury. It is much more than just learning to walk again. It is the gradual healing process of the brain, which is documented in the book along with my views of everything from bedpans to physical therapy and singing on stage again. It's also the story of how so many experiences in my life had prepared me to overcome adversity. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to sharing a part of my life with you!! Cheers! Valerie

    Getting prize and appreciation from the colossal establishments and organizations. This is perhaps the best accomplishment of this vocalist. Considerably more such appreciation is in transit for that individual and I prefer to visit https://www.chartattack.com/how-to-find-assignment-help-from-australian-writers/ site for best assignment help. We are holding out for divine intervention on the grounds that the difficult work consistently paid off for us in all areas of life.
