Thousands have found laughter, tears, and realistic optimism as Hjelmstad pulls readers into the deep range of emotions that engulfed her as she battled breast cancer, two mastectomies and chronic fatigue syndrome. The introspective journal entries, poignant photographs, powerful poetry and thoughtful reflections tell a story you won't soon forget. This unusual format is succinct and easily read by those who are overwhelmed by emotion and treatment.

Fine Black Lines was awarded lst Place in Non-fiction by Colorado Independent Publishers Association in 1994 and received the Best Book Award 1996 from the Natural Death Centre in London.

Lois Hjelmstad has taught piano, music theory and composition for 38 years in Englewood, Colorado. She and her husband, Les, have four grown children and twelve grandchildren. Her writing has been published in the American Journal of Nursing, Administrative Radiology Journal, American Medical News and elsewhere. She has given many presentations on writing as a means of coping, cancer as a catalyst for change, breast cancer and sexuality, and related topics throughout the United States, as well as in England and Canada.
