I send out a newsletter about once a month (sometimes every other month). Subscribers get bonus material, access to new writing, discounts on new books or free pre-releases, and announcements about what’s coming up. Opt out at any time if it’s not your vibe. New subscribers get a free short story to sample my writing style.
The short story is called The Back Side of Wisdom.
This heartwarming short story explores the lessons learned when thirty-year-old Chelsea becomes a caregiver for her mother who has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
Here’s a snippet:
“Even when she couldn’t respond I knew she heard me. I could tell by the way her eyes moved and changed. It was subtle, but I’d been staring at her for so long I felt like I could almost read her mind.
Other times she was lucid, and I endured the gibberish just for a glimpse of the woman I’d always known.
Out of the blue she would toss quotes up to the surface like they were pieces of gold mined from deep within a dying cortex.
I wished I could weave them together into a sweater I could wear it as a reminder, something to keep me warm in the cold, dark days ahead.”
Excerpt from “The Back Side of Wisdom” by Lynda Meyers
I believe deeply in the power of story, connection, and authentic relationship. I’m a writer with two award-winning novels and a third just released, a staff writing position at Modern Moto Magazine, a blog, four kids and a full-time job as a registered nurse. My blog is a mix of life lessons, travel stories and motorcycle adventures built on a foundation of yoga and organic food, poetry and painting with a belief that life should be an intentional endeavor.
My first published novel was Letters From The Ledge, published in 2012. Finn Again and Trulane, published in 2016 and 2017 respectively, are related but can be read in either order. I also write for magazines, short stories and online content.
