I’ve published many fiction books under my pen name and I’ve had countless nonfiction articles published in newspapers and magazines under my given name, but I’ve never had a nonfiction book published. Until this spring.
I have many nonfiction books in the works, but the first to see light will be Fluid of Life – What doctors never told me about my blood. I wouldn’t call it a memoir. I’m sharing my experience of living with anemia, and I hope to provide information to others inflicted with the same condition, information doctors never told me. This is the information I would have loved to have had in my 20s.
I’ll talk more about the book as launch day approaches. Here’s a clip from it.
Fluid of Life by Diana Tibert
I WAS A healthy child and teen, so my parents saw no need to take me to the doctor’s office for a check-up. We didn’t go unless there was a problem. After all, it cost money to visit a doctor back then, and we were poor. The two dollar-service fee could buy a lot of food in the 60s and 70s and with 12 mouths to feed, every penny was needed.
