Fun Author Interview with Sally of Quills and Roses!

Thanks Sally, for the wonderful author interview you posted on your blog! 

Diane and Mark Author Interview excerpt:

“Hey all! Recently I’ve had the good fortune of being given an awesome MG time travel adventure to read (check out my review of The Ravenstone here) and now the talented authors Mark & Diane are doing an interview for me. (Seriously guys, y’all should become book reviewers. The perks are so cool.) In any case, less rambling from me and more from the lovely authors themselves!”

What were you like as a kid?

MARK: When I was in elementary school I was practically invisible. Average height, average weight, average looking and quiet as a mouse… when I was at school, at least.  In Junior High I grew so fast people didn’t recognize me in the fall after summer vacation. My newfound size brought with it confidence. By the ninth grade my English teacher told me I had found the power of words but not the wisdom to wield them. Fortunately, she liked me in spite of myself and did her best to give my verbal skills direction. I hope I have lived up to her expectations. Thank you Mrs. Campbell, wherever you are.

Know anyone with CFS?

Kindle cover final oct 10 2015Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: a guide to the homeopathic treatment of CFS/M.E.

Do you know of anyone suffering from CFS, or ME as it is called in the UK? I want to spread the word; homeopathic treatment is so powerful in the treatment of CFS, and in fact, it was a complete cure for me and many clients I worked with over the years. Please share this with anyone you know who might benefit. Thank you.

The author writes both from personal experience as a sufferer of CFS and as a practitioner who has helped many who have been afflicted with it. She states the facts and research clearly and lays out an incredibly detailed approach to regaining health. This is a must read for anyone with CFS and for all complimentary health practitioners. It should also be read by traditional medical providers.

I bought this book because a friend’s daughter has CFS- has been sick for years. The author seems to really know her stuff, writes well and the book is pretty easy to read. There are lots of links and resources. And there is info in there about the homeopathic approach that is probably not available anywhere else, unless maybe in professional homeopathy books.

I hope it helps my friend’s daughter. It is awful illness – wrecking people’s lives.

In my opinion, it’s ……A MUST READ!!!!

Having a friend with CFS, I have witnessed her struggle, over more than a decade, with the traditional orthodox medical approach – they have been little to no help to her at all. Her deep dives in alternative and complementary healthcare have provided more relief. She has yet to go to a good homeopath, and I am suggesting to her that she take this book to a homeopath and get to work!

This book focuses on the homeopathic treatment of CFS, and what a powerhouse of information it holds. It is clear, concise, well laid out, easy to read and understand, and chock full of links and resources.

As for the naysayers of homeopathy, they (loudly) claim that high dilutions of a homeopathic remedy have no molecules left of the of the original substance. Ms Solomon’s section on “Homeopathy and Research” addresses that point. She presents several recent pieces of research that confirm there ARE nanoparticles (1 part per billion) present in 30c potencies of remedies, and higher. This quote from the book sums it up: “Dogs can smell substances in parts per billion or even trillion. . This is verifiable science and what the legal world calls ‘Back Letter Law.’ If animals can detect a substance in such small quantities, why is inconceivable that the human immune system can detect a substance even in great dilution?”

If you have CFS or know someone with the illness, you really should check out this book.

I’m only half way through Ms. Solomon’s book and I’ve learned so much about the wide variety of western medical treatment and homeopathy. It’s an easy read and filled with great references for further research. A must read for those who seek healing and want to learn about a variety of healing techniques.

What a story! Diane’s message needs to be shouted from the rooftops so that anyone dealing with CFS can find their way to it. Homeopaths, Naturopaths and MD’s could better help their patients with the material in this book. Thank you Diane, for you heartfelt clarity in bringing this information forward!

What a wealth of information! Hopefully this book will show up as a reference for everyone researching Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – a truly complicated illness. If I got nothing else out of this book, it was a true appreciation of not only what a CFS patient suffers, but also the COMPLEXITY of its diagnosis, treatment options, possible origin(s), etc. etc. etc. Whether a practicing Homeopathic doctor or patient, an allopathic physician, a CFS researcher, or, like me, someone who is keen to learn as much as possible about homeopathy, this book has a great deal to offer. Thank you, Diane, for putting so much together in one resource!

This is a welcome to book on a controversial and puzzling condition. It also comes from a unique perspective of someone who has suffered with the illness, recovered and is now helping others get better. It is comprehensive and well written by someone who is an expert from both sides of the patient practitioner equation.

Modern life has given rise to chronic health conditions as opposed to the more acute illnesses of previous centuries. Modern life is more insidiously toxic than at any time in the past with many tens of thousands of new chemicals in the environment the effect of each let alone in combination is not fully understood.

Conventional medicine has failed to truly identify and find effective remedies for this, as is the case with many chronic conditions. Holistic medicine recognizes the multi factorial origin of this malady and can produce a multi factorial and individualized and effective solution. Diane uses the perspective from her knowledge of homeopathy, herbs and Nutritional medicine to provide solutions that can be tailored to the needs of the patient.
This illness varies from a short lived and inconvenient malady to a serious long lasting and life threatening disease.

As someone, who like Diane has suffered with the condition and who has been fully cured her book provides hope and the way forward for those who led a full and productive life and have been stricken by this most debilitating of diseases. Highly recommended.

Can you share your writing process with us, in a nutshell?

Diane & Mark: For the pure logistics, we are outliners. We use a large board, into which we stick pushpins to hold up postcard-sized cards with scenes, sections, or individual pieces of the story (or sections if non-fiction). Then we can physically see the jigsaw puzzle and move things around until they feel right.

Character is vital: We spend a long time on character development, and each day before either of us writes, at least at the beginning, we tend to read through all the notes and reacquaint ourselves with the character.

Diane: Yes, if I am beginning to live and breathe the character – if I am in the protagonist’s head, and she is in mine – she will write her own actions and words.

But, I want to bring up something else, something required for the writing process for me. It’s hard to define, but essential. My writing seems to stem from what my husband calls my “extreme heart.” My writing process only works well if heart is involved….

EXCERPT:

What inspires you to write?
The joy of creativity, of being creative, drives me. It always has! As a singer/songwriter, I learned to trust the creative process and dive deeply into it. You have to dare to be criticized, dare to be silly, to be crazy, to be wild. There are moments during writing where you forget yourself entirely. You lose track of time. The writing seems to have taken over. Sometimes you look down and are surprised by what you read, as if you didn’t, in fact, write it! I can only describe this experience as somehow verging on transcendent, in that it feels beyond the limits of experience, or independent of this world. It is exciting, inspiring, and rewarding.

As for ideas for books, they stem from my life (and I have had a very strange but interesting life), and from my imagination. And from the “What if?” game!
