If you knew your time on earth was coming to an end, what would you do?

This is my story.

In early 2012, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and early metastasis of uterine cancer. After coming to terms with my illness, I decided to take stock of my life. I realized that time really was far shorter than we ever expect it to be, and, like all living things, our lives are finite. I did not want to leave this world without fulfilling a most cherished dream: authoring my own book.

I have always been a poet and a writer but I’d never had a book published. So while undergoing treatment, I wrote and wrote and wrote. This is what I have to share with you all.

“The Awakening of Ame: An Exploration in Love, Hate and Sex”, a collection of erotic short stories, poetry, artwork and photography in a beautifully bound hardcover book, is a paean to my twenties. A time when the world is before us and we think we are immortal. And “Diary of A Barren Woman”, an anthology of poetry and personal stories from women who are unable to have children because of medical complications.

The money raised on this site will pay for the printing and publishing costs of the books and a website where women (and the men who love them!) can share their stories, their experiences and their support with one another.

According to Ecclesiastes, there is a time for everything - a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance. I have wept and I have mourned. I’m ready to laugh and I’m ready to dance.
