My manuscript for Things Not To Say To Someone Who Has Cancer – A Beginners Guide is almost done. I’ve just now to write the last chapter and do a final edit, and I’m on track to publish first as an e-book on Amazon for Kindle later this month, then as a print book very soon after. […]

Besides, if I have one more scan, I’ll probably be responsible for my own leukaemia.
