My package, after 16 bids raised $151
& I am to dine with
my bidders on November 15th. Thank you Atco &
I am happy and proud to be
participating in the ATCO Christmas Bureau Auction on October 27 - 29th 2015!
I am donating a package that
includes the following:
1 copy of my memoir
'A Twisted Fate: My Life With Dystonia'
A dinner for three (including me) at
Riggoletto's Cafe in the downtown
Since my book is about a little
known neurological movement
disorder that I live with, I am passionately
promoting awareness for dystonia because of its strange, awkward often
painful symptoms that are sometimes
genetic yet many cases are not. It can present itself with no prior knowledge
of its existance!
This book is a story of struggle and
loss, it also speaks to the heart,
tells of all the good people I have
made along the way! I do hope
you bid and come
dine with me!!
For more information about the
auction taking place online October 27 - 29, visit FACEBOOK or the ATCO
Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year for giving and taking. This would be a great gift for reading fans everywhere!
Brenda Currey Lewis was a typical, active child. But when she was seven years old her life changed dramatically. Generalized dystonia (dystonia musculorum deformans) turned her muscles against her. This rare neurological movement disorder causes muscle groups to tug and twist the body into abnormal postures. Brenda started walking on the outer edge of her right foot, and within a year she was wheelchair bound. The symptoms gradually spread through most of her body. For almost forty years Brenda has experienced uncontrollable muscle movements that have wreaked havoc in her body, but not her spirit.
This is a story of resilience in the face of a little-known, confusing, and debilitating condition. The author takes you on a journey from skating rinks to surgical suites, from bicycles to wheelchairs, from doubt to determination. Brenda's quirky sense of humour makes this candid account of life with dystonia a thought-provoking and an entertaining read.
Happy 2016 to all!
My memoir has been published for two years now. Time flies when you do what you love and I
love this book!
2015 was a great year for A Twisted Fate but I feel that 2016 will be even better!

When I heard that Edmonton's
Mayor, Don Iveson's
mother, a retired University English Professor had read 'A Twisted Fate' and loved it, I gifted my mayor with his own copy! I got a letter in response, and in a timely fashion!
Next Book Signing:
January 7th, 2017 at
11 - 3
The last signing of A Twisted Fate was:
Saturday, August 13th, 2016 at Chapters on Whyte
This signing went well!
My memoir has been out for 5 years now, it is still a very relevant subject and story. Dystonia is still much of a mystery to health professionals, the public and certainly for those that live with it day after day. As research continues, we move closer to a cure!
