Last week I found out that a story I wrote has been selected to appear in the upcoming book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Living with Alzheimer’s and other Dementias. It’s the second of my stories to appear in the Chicken Soup books, so I know from experience the process is rigorous; to make the cut, and be selected from amongst the thousands of submissions, is a pretty good feeling.
The essay being published, titled All You Need is Love, is also one close to my heart, about a caring moment I witnessed between my grandmother and my cousin, her caregiver, both of whom have since passed away. I hope this story will honor their memory.
The book will hit the bookshops on April 22, 2014, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. I’ve just seen the cover, and here it is; what do you think?
