About the Author
As Damocles' Wife goes off to the printer in 2012, Wil is graduating high school and going off to college. Scott is traveling around the world, tumor free. And Shelly is packing her proverbial knapsack with fresh music, her camera and journal, art supplies, and dark chocolate, to set off on a new path, "carefree" in a normal sort of way.
"All of us are written upon by the challenges we faced, but with many more unwritten pages ahead," says Shelly. "We are each living our next book in life--beyond just new chapters."
