author of Somebody Stole My Iron: A Family Memoir
Vicki Tapia is one of the authors I've teamed up with to promote Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month. Vicki's book, Somebody Stole My Iron: A Family Memoir of Dementia, is the painfully honest story of Vicki's parents, who suffered from dementia for many years. Vicki was their primary caregiver. Her mom had Alzheimer's and her father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease-related dementia. Vicki chronicled the days she spent with her parents caring for them in their home and then throughout assisted living facilities and nursing homes until their deaths. These diaries became the foundation of this book, which is as personal, detailed, and brave a memoir of life with Alzheimer's that I've read. Please welcome Vicki to Adventures in Publishing.
It's always a pleasure to talk to a fellow author, Vicki. Tell us, were you born a writer or did it evolve?
I'm sure all of us would love to know that! How old were you when you first realized you’d been “born a writer?”
