I recall telling Andrew Marsh , fellow author, about Steve's story (Nipples to Kneecaps - to die or not to die with cancer) way back in the early 2000's when we both attended Swanwick Writers School.
Little did I know how relevant that story would be when a few years later in 2009 his wife Leslie was told she had cancer.
Andrew writes brilliantly about their journey in this blog PURPLE ANDREW'S BLOG including him supporting Leslie during her chemotherapy hair loss stage by also having his lovely long locks of hair shaved off!
Today November marks year 2 of remission and now 7 and a half years since the operation. Leslie you are an inspiration to many - well done!
As well as Purple Andres's Blog, Andrew also writes several other blogs:
Thrilling Writing for writers and writing.
Fendrelstale for writers and writing as well as some snippets and teasers for his forthcoming fantasy faery story trilogy Fendrel’s Tale. Volume 1 – The One Who Will Come
Away from writing, he has a blog for his random musings and thoughts on life in Purple and Blues
Fodmap and Us related to IBS and the Low FODMAP diet.
His Books on Amazon include:
The Truth, an adult crime thriller, not for the faint hearted
The Handbook Of TOP TIPS To Manage Your Writing
Thank you Andrew and Leslie for supporting the launch of 'Nipples to Kneecaps - to die or not to die with cancer' by Mandy Brown
