9780615997643: Reframing the Playing Field: a novel

Life isn’t always easy. And it appears to be much harder on some people than on others. But when it comes to Ashley Larsen, life likes to pile it on.

Only weeks after losing both of her parents to a fatal car accident, a herniated disc in Ashley’s back sends her crashing to the ground. Otherwise a healthy, twenty-six-year-old physical education teacher, Ashley finds her new reality difficult to accept. In the midst of tragedy, there’s also an error in her spinal surgery. This sends her over the edge.

Her struggle to recover some semblance of a normal life is becoming hopeless, until she meets handsome, suave Paul Williams. Their relationship grows, and Ashley heals emotionally and physically, but just when she’s about to move in with Paul, her back pain resurfaces, returning her to doctors and disruption.

After more hospital nightmares, Ashley finds herself at a crossroads in which she can either retreat into herself or rally with the help of Paul to make the most out of her situation. Reframing the Playing Field is an inspiring story about what happens when someone shifts focus from what has been destroyed to what she can create.

About the Author:

Antonia Joy experienced her first episode of piercing back pain twenty-three years ago, while working as a nurse. Her personal experiences with hospitals, surgeons, pain management, and back surgeries motivate her to write, in hopes of inspiring others with physical limitations to continue to find joy and meaning in life.

Joy has a doctorate of education and recently retired from a career in public health. Reframing the Playing Field is the result of her personal transformation while convalescing from numerous lumbar surgeries. She attributes her discovery of writing as a new purpose in life, to her spinal injuries and surgeries.

She lives in Atlanta, enjoys painting and abstract art, and is currently working on her second novel. Once she is physically able, she plans to travel to Italy’s Amalfi Coast, as well as to wherever the winds of exploration and passion take her.
