Project Info:

After Linda Kopec’s second bout with cancer, she knew she wanted to share her story with other cancer patients and their caregivers, to provide them with encouragement and hope. But she had no idea how to go about getting started. She wasn’t a writer and had never anticipated becoming one.

Yet, one day, as she was sharing these thoughts with a long-time friend of hers over a pancake breakfast at a local church, the first question he asked was, “Do you have a publisher?” When she replied that she did not, the gentleman grabbed the nearest clean napkin and wrote down Tara’s name, email address and phone number.

When Linda gathered the courage to call Tara a few days later, it was fun to hear the story of how Tara’s 8th-grade science teacher (a dear friend to this day) and Linda had known one another since they were kids growing up in the same town. The world is often much smaller than it sometimes seems…

And thus began Linda and Tara’s relationship, as Tara guided Linda through the process of writing her book, then ultimately publishing it for her.

We hope that you are as inspired by Linda’s story as we were by helping her tell it.
