L. S. Fayne has had fibromyalgia for over eleven years. In this book, she describes fibromyalgia symptoms, and how it has changed her life. She describes how it affects intimacy. Most importantly, she tells about the things she does to regain freedom. This book is not about a cure. It isn’t even about pain management. It’s about life management, and what can be done to get the most out of life. It’s about getting out of bed and living again!
I was born in Norwalk, California in 1960, and grew up in Santa Cruz, California. At the age of ten, our family moved to Oregon.
I married my husband Darrel in June of 1984. We are still together and very much in love. Still happy and wanting more.
My husband and I created our own publishing company, Fayne Artists. In June of 2008, we published my first novel, Christmas in the House of O'Byrne. I was so taken with the storyline and characters of the book that I created a series for it called, Druantia's Children. In these books, the ancestry of their magical family is described. I was inspired to go back in time, and create stories for the original seven sisters who migrated to America. This series is called, The O'Byrne Daughters.
I create all my own covers and artwork. It would be nice if someone else could put on the publishing hat, but for now, I'm satisfied to be so involved. I always have several books in the writing stage. It keeps my ideas fresh and alive to be able to switch around.
At book signings, I'm always asked about my religion, or specifically, if I am a witch. Although that is a rather personal question, I like to answer, "I believe in a little bit of everything, and nothing of everything."
I do fight with Fibromyalgia. It was suggested that I write about it. It took me a while, but it's out there. It's hard to write about something so personal. I wanted it to be as blunt and forthcoming as I could make it. For those fighting with Fibromyalgia, I stress for them to pursue something they are passionate about! Something that will help them get up every morning! I have my husband, a big extended family, writing, and cats. I am passionate about all of them.
We have a Kympco 250. I love riding with my husband. I love the wind in my face, and the smell of blackberries on a hot summer day. I love pointing out the hawks on the power poles as we move along. We do live in a blessed time.read more
