No More Secs!:
Living, Laughing, & Loving Despite Multiple Sclerosis
Author Ann Pietrangelo
When 44 year-old Ann Pietrangelo is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, all previous assumptions about health, work, and her budding romance are up for grabs. How do you plan for life’s second half with a body you’ve never met before? One precarious step at a time. From the impersonal diagnosis by email to a wedding presided over by a funeral director, this is no tragic tale of woe. Like relapsing/remitting MS itself, the book alternates between the serious (“When I turn toward him, there’s a big hole where his right cheek should be.”) and the silly (“The bocce balls don’t get out much.”). This poignant and often humorous story of acceptance and change trumpets a basic truth – that good health and life are fleeting, but love and humor can trump all. That every second matters soon becomes a point driven home by yet another life-altering diagnosis.

Author Jannet Ridener
“I don’t know a lot about too much of anything. Never did really … used to think I did, but I didn’t.”
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the classic Shakespearean tale of intricate sylvan misadventures, provides the inspiration for this contemporary retelling, shaped with a more modern sensibility.
Stalled party plans, religious services, romance, and a midlife crisis lead earnest people into a forest for escape, blessings, notice, and solace. Incarnate deities take too much interest in the seekers’ lives for no better reason than the mismanagement of their own affairs and instigate the unintentional but escalating deterioration of matters for the bewildered mortals. There’s no tree too tall, or insect so small, that can’t add more nonsense to the foolishness transpiring
These are mysterious circumstances for people who didn’t know that miracles are real, are as old as the universe, and will continue in some form or another, somewhere or another, until the end of time.
