This remarkable story recounts a common thread of opportunity and challenge met by persistence and ingenuity. Ed’s life experiences overcoming prejudice, learning disabilities, and societal barriers prepared him to benefit from early advances in cancer immunotherapy and beat the odds.

I always loved to write but had never felt compelled to do so until 1995 at the age of 52.

While working at a trade show in Hanover, Germany, I conversed with the security guard of the neighboring exhibit.  We talked about our families, life in his country after World War II, and the Germany of today.  This Memphis girl never expected to have such a fascinating and unique experience, and I wanted to remember every detail. I secured paper and began my first of many journals.

If it happens, I write it. If I contemplate it, I write it. If I find a willing reader, I am honored to share my passion. Through seminars, classes, and critique groups I continue to learn and make new and interesting friends.

My first manuscript began as a one-page assignment for my creative writing class. Legacy is still a work in progress, a tale of family rivalry, domestic abuse, mystery, and love. My protagonist and her story have grown in depth and complexity along with the author who created them.

The Miracle Known as Ed Levine is fiction based on the life my friend trusted me to pen. From his birth in London during World War II to facing terminal cancer at the age of 62, his is an inspiring story of survival. 

I believe that it’s never too late to follow your dream. I’m doing it.
