Dacia: I’m a mom of two under five and a ten-year Army veteran. I served in Baghdad ER on one of my two combat tours. My emergency medical knowledge lends itself well to writing action.
R: Wow! That's really amazing! What was it like working in the ER?
D: It was like the best worst time of my life. I actually blocked much from memory. I am only just recently starting to look back on events versus emotions, but it helps that the emotions attached to those memories aren’t negative. There is much pride and a sense of personal growth I still feel when I do talk about it. And a bit of surreal-ness to think that I came out of it with minimal trauma.
We're all writers, we're all moms, writing our way through the "brambles" of life and our stories.
