How The Chosen Ones Began
This is my first post and just to let you know... I'm new to it. I do however, plan to write regularly and it is my sincere hope that many of you will become avid readers of THE CHOSEN ONES book series. As this site grows and develops I would like YOU to use it to tell us about your own experiences with insurance and healthcare, both good and bad. Don't forget to review THE CHOSEN ONES, Thy Will Be Done, too! Just use the site to email me personally. Let me know if there are special subjects that you would like me to blog on. Send pictures and videos if you like! After all knowledge is power. I will plan chat times and live sessions along the way so that we can become better friends, talk about "The Chosen Ones" or attempt to become better advocates for improved healthcare. Who knows … we may be able to help each other. I believe that the present model of healthcare is failing and when we institute change, I want those changes to benefit all of our citizens and to be a model that allows patient and doctor to be the primary decision makers in overall health.
The actual idea for THE CHOSEN ONES began back in 1987 as I was beginning to see massive changes in the healthcare industry. I didn't like them then and after 30+ more years I continue to be disillusioned. Somewhere in between all that I decided to vent my frustrations by creating a series of books that would introduce to the lay people the deep seeded problems occurring right beneath our very noses. I was also hoping to entertain you as well … lol! I actually finished it in 1999 and it went to copyright in September of 2000. It took me two years to write the first book in the series, "Thy Will Be Done" and an additional eighteen years in which I, off and on, struggled with traditional publishing. It was also at this time that I was diagnosed with autoimmune disease, so I too have a vested interest. I can tell you that this next book … "They Walk Among Us" is just shy of present time and although its genre is FICTION, you will find it compelling and somewhat real.
In ending, I encourage you to enjoy my books, the website and my blogs. I will look forward to our continued discussions. Until the next time …
