Maybe I’m not as safe as I thought

I recently gave a character breast cancer. At least a little part of me believes that I’m now immune myself. Because it would be too ironic.

Except it didn’t work that way for Gail Konop Baker. In an interview, she says, "I’d written a second novel about a woman who finds a lump in her breast and thinks she might have breast cancer and wonders if she’s lived a meaningful life.”

And then she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her breast cancer ending up leading her to a new agent, a new book, and a new lease on life.
