Andrews, Debbie

I am married and have always enjoyed the idea of writing, and it's only this year that I've actually began to take it seriously.  I have had some of my short stories published on websites, as well as in local papers.  I hope one day to write my very own book.










B. Gayle Boles


I am a firm believer in the idea that life is an exciting adventure. It all depends on the attitude that I choose to have.

I have been a therapist for close to 30 years and was a school teacher for a while. I had the misfortune to have a stroke when I was 30 years old, which left me with a few limitations.

I have an up-beat, outgoing attitude that inspires people. I strongly believe that I can turn any circumstance or situation into a positive experience.

I love to travel and write about the experiences I have from the perspective of a single woman that is over 50 and has a few physical disabilities.

I think my mission in life is to personify the believe that life is an adventure.

I was born on the coast of Labrador, raised in Newfoundland, Canada,became a nurse, retiring at the age of 51 years after a 30 year career. I married in 1970 and migrated to Nova Scotia with my husband. We worked, my husband as a policeman, me as an Operating Room nurse,and we raised two children who have now flown the nest. In 2000 the call of the sea brought us back to 'The Rock', which Newfoundland is often called. My life is full-full of boats,family,snow machines, writing,photography and computers. Having an avid interest in Womens' Issues,Politics and Writing, and being able to pursue those interests is as much a dream come true as  was my childhood dream of becoming a nurse.

'Do No Harm' is part of the pledge we took in 1969 as new Registered Nurses. I still live by that pledge and always will.

Viscovich, Nedda

After more than 20 year career in sales and marketing, I left the corporate world to seek a different path.  Writing has been an avocation for most of my life and I recently decided to use my business skills to help small business with their writing needs. I am focusing on writing marketing materials - brochures, newsletters, catalogs, websites etc.  In my many years of travel for business and living in various parts of the country I have met some extraordinary people. As a second aspect of my writing career I have been inspired to write their stories. 'Shattering the Myth' will eventually become a collection of  stories on how individuals have worked through the many limiting beliefs that have been instilled in many of us in one form or another.
