M.A. Appleby is a Certified Landscape Designer, artist, and avid reader. She is a mystery buff who enjoys traveling and lives in Southwest Florida with her husband and son.
The concept for this book came from a journal that was started the day her son suffered a traumatic brain injury. This tragedy threw their whole family into turmoil as they tried to understand what lay ahead for them. As a caregiver, it is important not to lose your sense of self and that’s where writing became cathartic for her. She thought they would wake up from the nightmare and their lives would go back to ‘normal’, but that didn’t happen. That ‘recovery’ journal was the impetus Ms. Appley needed to write The Ancient Whisper, Whispered Dreams, and Journey of a Thousand Steps.
